Rosenthal predicted less than an hour ago that, within an hour, we’d be posting that the labor negotiations have ended for the day.
And the labor negotiations have ended for the day.
So says Albert Breer of NFL Network, who has been staking out the proceedings all day long. In all, the parties spent 12-and-a-half hours behind closed doors on Thursday. They’ll reconvene at 9:00 a.m. ET.
Breer reports that it was a “tough, tough day,” but that progress was made. Per Barry Wilner of the Associated Press, NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith said after the sessions, “We still have a lot of work to do.”
Most fans would react at this point by saying, “Then do it.”
Hopefully, the work will continue all day Friday, and into the weekend.
