Looking at the labor timeline for the rest of the week

If you haven’t figured it out just yet, labor predictions are just that: educated guesses.

And there have been plenty of misses over the last few months.  With that disclaimer out of the way and the labor agreement seemingly in reach, we asked NFL Network Albert Breer what the upcoming week could look like.

“Assuming everything works out today we really kicked things into high gear tomorrow. This afternoon in DC the NFPLA executive committee will be meeting, the 32 players reps will get there tonight and tomorrow morning. The hope is that they can vote to recommend the settlement to the Brady plaintiffs and the settlement is in the hands of the Brady plaintiffs,” Breer said.

More about the upcoming days are in the video below. Breer indicates Tuesday are that things are “progressing” in New York.

    NFLPA re-certifying as a union before owners approve a deal is pure fantasy. Doing so would kill pending antitrust lawsuits, the players’ only leverage. No union, no CBA. No CBA, no football.

    The owners, of course, could lift the lockout anytime they want. They could even re-impose the lockout next month, or September, or mid-season if negotiations reached an impasse.

    There is only one party to blame if we miss pre-season games. The owners, who are maintaining a lockout.

    The players have been submitted offers, they could easily accept them.

    @123makarov – you’ve got to be kidding me! The owners are solely to blame if games are missed? I DON’T THINK SO!! As of now, it is a handful of PLAYERS who are holding up an agreement because of their greedy anti-trust lawsuit that is pending. Are Brees, Manning, Brady, et al. pursuing this for the good of themselves or their fellow players?
    The owners have been offering deals all along. The players reps continued to walk away from the table and forced things into court and litigation/mediation. While the owners aren’t saints, they’ve at least negotiated in (somewhat) good faith. The players haven’t even come close to that.

    Exactly HOW do you know this?

    Despite the fact that they were ordered by a judge to do so and there was a federal mediator overseeing the talks to make sure both sides did exactly that…some dude on a message board has the REAL scoop.

    Or not.

    What’s scary is that I’m starting to think these people fall for their own act when it comes to their pro-Owner’s Union propaganda.
