With a new CBA finally ratified, the NFL’s first order of business was . . . .

To shut down the labor propaganda website launched in conjunction with the run up to the lockout.

In a final posting at NFLLabor.com, the website bids adieu, “for at least 10 years.”

The fact that the site won’t remain active for the purposes of posting periodic news regarding matters like the application of the new CBA and the resolution of the inevitable disputes that will arise regarding its terms confirms that the goal of the site was to push the league’s position on issues regarding the work stoppage.

Meanwhile, NFLLockout.com (the players’ answer to NFLLabor.com) remains active, with no new postings since July 26.  The NFLPA website has been resurrected, but for now it has no publicly-available information.
