    Owners can't agree on opening books plus other CBA tidbits ..

    Owners can't agree on opening books

    3/10/2011 11:20:14 AM


    There are some NFL owners who want to completely open the league's financial books to the union, according to Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com.

    The problem is other NFL owners are refusing.

    So the stalling in the talks has happened because one set of owners desires to open their books and others do not, a source explains. Thus ownership is stuck trying to find a way to mend these differences.

    If ownership can, and the books are opened, a deal could likely be reached quite quickly.

    That's where we are now. Ownership is arguing amongst itself.

    Any guesses about who wants to keep it secret? Jones? Snyder??




    Sources: Revenue divide down to $600 million

    3/10/2011 1:07:11 PM


    Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports the NFL and players' union sources indicate that the gap between the proposals on the annual revenue split is now closer to $600 million.

    That's a major improvement from earlier reports of the gap being roughly $800 million.

    So the owners would rather accept a smaller piece of the pie in exchange for keeping their books a secret? Hmnn .. Looks like a classic battle of the " Have lots and more lots" vs the "Have lots" ..

    Good grief. If the cba expires because 3 owners can't be made to open their books I'd really like to know which idiots it was.

    Well I think it was tim hasselbeck who said that the owners don't want to reveal the owners families on the payroll and the money spent on jet flights.

    The annoying thing here is that the owners' whole case for renegotiation is based on their claim that they need more money for operating expenses. If they won't back that claim up with numbers, they shouldn't act too surprised if the union doubts their sincerity.

    You all seem to presume that, the minute the owners open up their books, the rest would be resolved.

    I'm not so sure about that.
