NFL Labor Watch: Chiefs Employees To See Pay Cut In Event Of Lockout
Published March 2, 2011
BUSINESS AS USUAL: In West Palm Beach, Ben Volin noted while the Jets are "planning to make their employees take a 25 percent paycut in the form of a one-week furlough each month until the lockout is resolved," Dolphins Owner Stephen Ross Monday said his team will be conducting "business as usual." A team source said that Dolphins employees are "understandably nervous that paycuts could come eventually." But Ross said, "Hopefully we're not in the position where we have to do that. We can't really let it stop what we're doing. We wouldn't be ready for when we can go" (PALMBEACHPOST.com, 3/1).
CHANGE OF PLANS: In Nashville, Jim Wyatt reports new Titans coach Mike Munchak "had hoped to gather his players today, introduce them to the new coaching staff and discuss plans in the event of a work stoppage." But sources said that the meeting was "abruptly canceled Tuesday ... because of concerns about NFL rules during a league dead period." Sources said players were informed by e-mail that the "timing of the meeting is not good" (Nashville TENNESSEAN, 3/2).
