NFLPA Still Wants More Financial Transparency As Deadline Nears
Published March 10, 2011
Although the NFL and NFLPA can agree to extend the CBA, which is set to expire at the end of the day Friday, financial and other sources said that if there was an agreement by the NFL to show the NFLPA its books, it would take weeks for auditors to go through them. NFLPA Exec Dir DeMaurice Smith, leaving the mediation yesterday, reiterated the need for full financial disclosure and told reporters what the NFL offered the players was "utterly meaningless."
NFL Exec VP & General Counsel Jeff Pash following yesterday’s session acknowledged that what the NFL offered was evidently not what the union wanted. He added the league was still willing to discuss the issue. But with time running out, sources say it is not likely the sides will reach agreement on that issue.
