NFL Lockout Deadline Moved Back 24 Hours

The NFL and the NFLPA have agreed to a 24 hour extension on their current collective bargaining agreement, so that negotiations may continue for at least one more day.

Recent events, recounted here, have made the owners position somewhat less tenable, and with public opinion beginning to turn against both parties.

Both the league and the NFLPA have largely adhered to the federal mediator’s request to cease making public statements regarding the negotiations, although Washington Redskins player rep Von Holliday suggested today, that the two sides were still “far apart”.
