As the NFL Lockout continues, most fans know that the owners and players have been meeting in earnest to try to work out the final aspects of a new Collective Bargaining Agreement in order to save the possibility of losing or delaying the 2011 regular season. Already, a pre-season game is in jeopardy, but if something is agreed upon in th enext week or so, the regular season should go on as planned, even if the exhibition games may need to be rearranged.
Here is the official NFL-NFLPA Joint Statement:
"The discussions this week have been constructive and progress has been made on a wide range of issues. Our legal and financial teams will continue to work through the weekend. We will continue to respect the confidentiality orders of Chief Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan and will therefore refrain from commenting on specific issues or aspects of the negotiations. We will provide additional information as developments in this process continue."
