NFL, NFLPA Head Into More Talks Overseen By Federal Mediator
Published March 1, 2011
Hovering over today’s talks are reports the union plans to decertify before the CBA expires, and a possible decision from a federal court on the so-called lockout insurance case. The union is trying to prevent the league from cashing in media fees during a lockout. So far, owners have not participated in the talks, so if one or more attends today’s session that will be sure to garner attention.
Barring a breakthrough or an extension of the deadline, the CBA expires at 11:59pm Thursday. It is unclear if the owners meeting that begins at 3:00pm tomorrow will stretch that far into the next day.
