08:05 AM ET 06.22 | Mid-July, NFL fans -- that's a new mark on the horizon. Now that NFL owners appear to have cleared a significant hurdle on the way to labor peace with the players, the question for the league is simple: How fast can they get the league year started? The short answer is sometime on or just before July 15. By that point, the league may be reopen for business on a permanent basis, meaning free agents could get signed and draft picks could start to meet with coaches for the first time in hopes of catching up as much as possible by the start of training camp. "That kind of timeline is altogether possible," a source on the owners' side said Tuesday after the owners spent a little less than six hours hearing from commissioner Roger Goodell about the state of the collective bargaining agreement talks with the players.

Looks like he's trying... maybe a good kick to the groin will do the trick.

They need to find a new commissioner to take a picture of.

I thought it was nigh a step closer to the priestly robe complete with an alter boy underneath.

Really funny to see that little dwarf handing the cup up to Chara.

I don't follow NHL league stuff, just on ice with the Bruins. What is it about Bettman that makes everyone hate the guy. Like, the Vancouver fans booed him every time he opened his mouth.

get the deal done already!

Yup. When I see the "CBA Signed By All Parties" thread, I'll be happy. They can go back to an entire summer of "Will He Come Out Of Retirement Again?" threads, and Carson Palmer threads, and Terrele and Terrell threads and JJ threads, and I'll still be happy.
