08:03 AM ET 03.11 | Not even the spokesmen are getting along. In an exchange that encapsulates the rising tension between the league and player's union, we present some comments from NFLPA spokesman George Atallah and NFL spokesman Greg Aiello. Atallah, speaking to Bob Glauber of Newsday: "If owners continue to question players' commitment to negotiations, we're prepared two make public all our unanswered proposals." Aiello on Twitter in response: "While George is at it, ask him when is union going to respond to our 150 pages of draft CBA provisions that they received eight days ago. Waiting." Atallah on Twitter: "I would like to request an expense credit from the owners on the last three hours of my life."

The Lingerie League might be a better bet.

The mediator told both sides not to negotiate in the media. The fact both sides have started ignoring him doesn't look good. I guess my wife will be happy to see my Sundays freed up this nonseason.

They can't figure out which one's a number. That's why they had to hire a bank to check their math.
