The mediation song and dance re-started Monday, and we have every reason to believe it will prove fruitless. One of the NFL’s 32 owners has a better idea.
“Jeff Saturday and I could get this thing done, on cocktail napkins, over a long lunch at Rick’s Boatyard . . . it’s not that hard!” Colts owner Jim Irsay wrote on Twitter Monday.
It’s not such a bad idea. In fact, the NFL has already tried it when Commissioner Roger Goodell met with Saturday for a beer during March labor negotiations. Nothing really came of that, except the endless spin cycle.
“Every time we argue about who’s fault it is and who did that and who said this..spin,spin,spin..who cares! Get something done!” Irsay said.
It’s taken two months for the owners to start sounding like the fans. Progress?
