No deal reached for NFL football

After reporting that the NFL owners tried to slip new elements into a CBA, the NFLPA has ended this evening’s discussions with no vote on the proposal from the owners.

Jim Trotter of and ESPN’s Chris Mortensen obtained a copy of the e-mail sent by NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith to the board of player representatives.

“As you know the Owners have ratified their proposal to settle our differences,” the e-mail states.  “It is my understanding they are forwarding it to us.  As you may have heard, they apparently approved a supplemental revenue sharing proposal.  Obviously, we have not been a part of those discussions.  As you know from yesterday, issues that need to be collectively bargained remain open other issues such as workers compensation, economic issues and end of deal terms remain unresolved.  There is no agreement between the NFL and the Players at this time.  I look forward to our call tonight.”

This could get ugly now, folks.  The NFL owners are showing no respect to the NFLPA and apparently are in no rush to get this season started on time.
