NFL owners vote to end lockout

NFL owners vote to end lockout



July 21st, 2011
07:06 PM ET

NFL owners have approved a 10-year revenue-sharing agreement with players, Commissioner Roger Goodell announced Thursday evening.

"We will be prepared to open training facilities Saturday," Goodell said Thursday. "It is time to get back to football. That is what everyone here wants to do."

The August 7 Pro Football Hall of Fame Game between the Chicago Bears and St. Louis Rams has been canceled due to time constraints, he said.

The league's 32 owners, who were meeting in Atlanta, agreed to end the current lockout in a 31-0 vote.

Player representatives scheduled an 8 p.m. conference call in which they are expected to discuss recertifying their union, said Coy Wire of the Atlanta Falcons.

"I do feel good" about the prospects, Wire told CNN.

A procedure may have to be resolved for 1,900 players to vote on a new agreement that would end the current lockout. That could take some time because players decertified their union earlier this year and an antitrust lawsuit was subsequently filed by players against the league.
While free agent players are anxious about being able to reach new contracts, Wire said, many players want to make sure "everything is looked at with precision."

The regular season is supposed to open on September 8.

HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY!!!

Owners agreed to the conditions but the players have not yet. There were factors such as the supplemental revenue sharing agreement that the owners knew about but the players did not so there are complications still.

The lastest news out today is that the players' union has agree to the new deal signed by the owners and it looks like it will be signed on Monday. That means free agents will be able to be signed as early as next Saturday and the regular season will start as usual following a shorten pre-season.

So now we get 10 years of Labor peace and we only missed one preseason game.

I doubt the NBA will be so lucky. But that's a story for another thread.
