NFL Labor Negitiations: Players And Owners Agree To Second Extension Of Talks

Armageddon has been averted once more, this time by at least a week.

Both sides in the NFL labor negotiations have agreed to extend the current Collective Bargaining Agreement for seven more days, according to numerous sources. The deadline was yesterday, initially, and was extended until today to allow both sides to continue negotiating. This seven-day extension will allow both sides to continue talking and, hopefully, come to an agreement to avoid a lockout of the players and decertification of the players union.

By all accounts, this is going to be the last extension of these talks. By this time next week, either we'll be talking about a new Collective Bargaining Agreement (or, better yet, not talking about the CBA at all), or we'll be talking about the players being locked out and the union being decertified.

Hopefully, this means that the two sides are making progress. . .one would think that, if they weren't, they wouldn't agree to keep talking. Can they get this thing settled in seven days? We're all going to find out.
