And yet another small piece of good news emerges regarding the 91-day-old lockout.
At a time when when NFL and the NFLPA* are engaging in not-so-secret negotiating sessions, they also are engaging in not-so-secret communications beyond the confines of the meetings.
The latest wrinkle comes from Albert Breer of NFL Network.
It’s not a shock, given the amount of work to get accomplished and the number of satellite issues that need to be addressed. After weeks of little or no communication, there’s a lot of catching up to do.
Even if that catching up process seems to be going awfully slowly.
So after an extended period during which the parties couldn’t agree on matters as simple as the content of the calendar or the normal path of the sun, it’s encouraging that they are talking this extensively. The more they talk, the more issues they’ll resolve.
Eventually, they’ll resolve them all. We just hope that “eventually” comes sooner rather than later.
