    "The NFLPA has always focused on reaching a fair Collective Bargaining Agreement through negotiations. We hope that this renewed effort, through mediation, will help the players and owners reach a successful deal."

    Source: Union and league agree to seven straight days of negotiations

    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on February 17, 2011, 6:37 PM EST
    After a week without communication, the NFL and NFLPA have agreed to do nothing but talk for a week.

    A league source tells PFT that the league and union have agreed to seven straight days of negotiations. This development was said in a conference call with agents. The seven straight days will kick off Friday.

    Thursday was a positive one for everyone hoping for a resolution by early March. The two sides agreed to Federal Mediation and now have agreed to the kind of sustained discussions necessary to get a deal done.

    It’s only a small start, but it’s something.

    This is great news. I still don't get why this process wasn't started like 2 years ago when the owners were planning on option out.

    with 2 years to go the union can ask for the moon, with the possibility of missing paychecks they can lower their demands a little

    Damn, I thought this was an article about spirituality? I misread it as meditation...

    The union has never asked for the moon. They are not asking for more than what they had, it is the owners who are asking for the moon. The union agreed to start re-negotiating the deal 2 years ago and told the owners that they would do so without them needing to opt out of the previous CBA. The Owners created this mess
