There were talks on Monday and according to some in attendance, progess was made. They seem to have found common ground on things. It also appears that both sides are done with the 'blowing smoke' phase of negotiations and are eager to get things done.

I liked the proposal the players sent to the owners regarding the extra two games....they get a larger share of the gate, there is an extra week off added and each team recieves an extra 4 players added to their roster.

A good article to read below for anyone interested.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- If the National Football League could throw a penalty flag at the players union, it would be for political interference.

The NFL Players Association has turned to Congress for help in preventing an owners lockout of players next season. The union has drafted letters for lawmakers to send to the league and held a briefing for members of Congress and their aides on the economic impact of a labor dispute, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.

The union's adversary on Capitol Hill, NFL lobbyist Jeff Miller, argued that Congress isn't in a position to resolve the dispute and that trying to pull lawmakers into it is out of bounds.

Like we need the government engaged in this too...everything else is going so well. Recall the Baseball hearings on PEDs.

I don't think it will go that far. Both sides know that they lose in this if play is disrupted.
