Wait a Minute, No Vote from the Players Today

By Alan Schechter

In late breaking news reported on nfl.com, the players did meet as a group in Washington DC, but have decided not to vote on a proposal to end the ongoing lockout.

The sticking points are the outstanding Brady lawsuit, and the lawsuit regarding TV rights.  The NFLPA executive committee is not recommending a vote on a labor agreement until both of those lawsuits are resolved, and there is no timetable on that.

NFLPA president Kevin Mawae stated that it is a good sign that all teams are represented in the meetings in Washington DC, but they are not holding to any timetable.  They will vote on a deal that is the “right deal”.

So on we go.
