    NFL | Free agency could be postponed again

    NFL | Free agency could be postponed again
    Sun, 5 Mar 2006 10:25:33 -0800

    Mark Maske, of the Washington Post, reports a union official said just before 11:15 a.m. Sunday, March 5, that a new bargaining session was about to begin. Gene Upshaw, the executive director of the Players Association, and Richard Berthelsen, the union's general counsel, traveled back to New York from Washington this morning after leaving New York when talks broke down Saturday, March 4. Another participant in the talks said just before today's bargaining session began that any optimism should be tempered, however, because the sides had not yet resumed face-to-face negotiations and there still was plenty of work to be done. It seemed possible that the two sides could agree to a second postponement of the opening of the free-agent market, scheduled for midnight, if they made progress today but could not complete a deal. Even if the parties emerge from today's negotiations with a tentative agreement, the owners and players would have to ratify the deal.




    Ah! It better not or I'm going to go crazy. I can't wait for Free Agency any more. I have school and I can't sleep when I'm excited for something ahla free agency. Please don't post pone.

    NFL | Labor deal getting closer; free agency to be pushed back to Wednesday?
    Sun, 5 Mar 2006 13:41:51 -0800

    Mark Maske, of the Washington Post, reports negotiators for NFL team owners and the players' union were making progress Sunday afternoon, March 5, toward settlement on an extension of their collective bargaining agreement, sources familiar with the deliberations said. It appeared increasingly likely that the league would push back the opening of the free-agent market, scheduled for midnight tonight, for a second time, perhaps until Wednesday, March 8. Sources said the owners and players were progressing toward a compromise in which players would receive approximately 59 percent of a greatly expanded pool of league revenues as compensation under a salary-cap system.

    Let them push it back as far as they want if it means a new CBA in place. I don't see any reason why it couldn't go back as far as the beginning of April if that's what it took.
