AFL resolves its labor dispute


The league consisting of players who would at best be replacements for NFL players won’t be needing replacement players of its own.

After months of largely-ignored labor strife culminating in a couple of stop-and-start strikes and a more recent plan for a management-imposed lockout, the Arena Football League has worked out a new Collective Bargaining Agreement with its players.

The AFL has announced that the two sides struck an agreement in principle on Sunday.  The formal labor deal will be signed on Wednesday.

The best news?  We can now go back to generally ignoring the AFL.
