At a time when pessimism had been growing regarding the court-ordered mediation in Minnesota, Albert Breer of NFL Network reports that “‘some progress‘” was made on Tuesday, after a “tough day of talks.”
But what does “some progress” mean? Unless we know where the talks stood when the day began, it’s impossible to even begin to guess how much progress still needs to be made.
The good news is that they’re still talking. The better news would be if all the owners (and all 10 named plaintiffs) show up, ready and willing and motivated to make a deal.
If that would happen, we think a deal would get done quickly. And if they truly cared about the game and the fans, that would happen.
