Mark Murphy pushes for more negotiations

Green Bay Packer player Woodson joins Packers' CEO Murphy as Murphy hammers a gavel to close the trading session at the NYSE in New York

Patriots owner Robert Kraft’s message to Patriots fans indicated that last Friday’s offer from the owners was negotiable.

On Tuesday’s PFT Live, Packers CEO Mark Murphy furthered that point by saying he thought the offer would have been good enough to spark more negotiations.

It appears there won’t be any negotiations until after April 6.  No matter what your feelings are in this labor battle, it feels like we’re wasting everyone’s time when the two sides aren’t talking.

Murphy told Florio Tuesday that the owners would welcome mediated negotiations anytime between now and April 6.  The players haven’t publicly rejected that notion as of yet, but it seems clear more talks won’t happen.

The longer the sides don’t talk, the tougher it may be to make a deal.   At some point, Murphy warned, the deal on the table could decrease because of lost revenue that comes in the meantime.

    Translation: “So help you god if that judge rules in our favor 3 weeks from now. You’re gonna beg for this deal to be back on the table. You want books? We’ll give you books. We’re gonna take our books, rip ‘em up page by page, wipe our collective rear-ends with them and throw them in your face.”
