they only met for 57 minutes today... whatever the case, that's not a good sign.


That was early this morning before they decided to extend the deadline.


true, but I believe the deadline was extended to ensure teams more time to be "cap compliant."

In a bizarre move...

per ESPN, a "high placed NFL official" stated teams will be able to recall players put on waivers, given the ever changing "deadline"--now 6PM Sunday for cap compliance and 12:01AM Monday for start of FA

makes sense to me. teams didnt anticipate anything happening to delay free agency, so they started cutting players early to get prepared. makes complete sense. i bet the broncos recall at least 2 of the 3 starters they released.

ESPNews reports the NFL and NFLPA have broken off talks once again regarding a new CBA. Union executive director Gene Upshaw is reportedly headed back to Washington and sources have noted the deal is "dead as a doornail."

They seem to have forgotten there's a third group involved with all this...the fans.... :-t

On a positive note...

Talks between the NFL and its union broke off with no progress, although the sides agreed to meet again March 5.

They've at least agreed to get together to argue and disagree and break talks off one more time...way to go guys! ;-D

very nice to see the rich argue about who is richer.

As most of you know, the focal point of these discussions revolves around revenue sharing. High revenue teams (NY, Dallas, DC) would like to have a lower percentage (their ultimatum is 56.2%) of all revenue distributed equally. The small revenue teams (ARI, Jax) would like a high percentage... they want 60%.

So basically, these jerks are potentially ruining America's greatest sport for what... less than a 4 percent difference? And neither side will cave?

I realize that difference is huge, since football is a billion dollar industry, but suck it up. You already have enough money to ensure that your grandkids will never have to work a day in their lives. Can't they just comprimise...

4%, or the death of football. :-t
