Count Falcons owner Arthur Blank among those who believe an agreement to end the lockout will be reached today.
“Yes, I think so,” Blank told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution when asked if he thinks the deal will get done today. “I’d be disappointed like 330 million people in America if it didn’t get done today.”
For the most part, owners have avoided making predictions about when the lockout will end, but Blank’s statement that the deal should get done today is another sign that the owners are prepared to approve a new Collective Bargaining Agreement before they leave today’s meeting.
Here’s hoping that 23 other owners feel the same way, and that the players vote to approve a deal, too.
