As we move farther into the month of February, the NFL and the NBA are on the verge of a work stoppage, however, it seems to me that the NFLPA is seeking to try to compromise as much as possible. The FEDERAL GOVERMENT’S MEDIATION BOARD has jumped in the mix. It seems that CONGRESS really like football and they will do anything to continue play next year. The current CBA expires MARCH 3, 2011. Key PLAYERS INVOLVED HERE ARE PLAYER REPS AND OWNERS. I SURE HOPE THAT A PLAN IS COMPLETED AND SIGNED BY BOTH PARTIES AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. FOOTBALL IS EVERYONES FALL SPORT.
ON THE OTHER HAND, THE NBA HAS A DEADLINE OF JUNE 30, 2011. THIS WEEKEND IN L.A. WILL BE VERY IMPORTANT TO ALL PARTIES INVOLVED HERE. THEY WILL TRY TO HASH OUT A DEAL AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. MANY NBA TRANSACTIONS HAVE BEEN EFFECTED BY THE EXPIRING CBA AGREEMENT. AS NOTED EARLIER….MANY GM’S ARE SITTING ON THIER HANDS BEFORE PULLING THE TREIGGER ON ANY DEALS. WE HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE. ….WHAT DO YOU THINK?…..REAL TALK….
