It’s been a nice few days for fans that want to view the NFL’s labor negotiations through rose-colored lenses.
Agreeing to federal mediation and talking for two straight days is a positive step, but it doesn’t tell us much. As PFT tracks the daily developments, I’m trying to remember that it’s bound to get ugly while watching how the CBA sausage gets made. There’s no point getting overly emotional about the ups and downs. They are inevitable.
As Liz Mullen of the Sports Business Journal pointed out Friday in her visit to PFT Live, no one knows what’s going to happen. Including the people in the room.
That’s why predicting when an agreement will be reached is tricky business.
