The deadline to extend the collective bargain agreement is tonight at 12:01 am est. There seems to be several fundamental stumbling blocks in the players association proposal (according to commisioner Paul Tagliabue) that caused the owners to vote unanimously to end talks. With free agency starting Friday morning this impasse could drastically alter the NFL landscape this season. The players association are demanding 60% of the revenue sharing pool and the owners are offering 56.2%. The issues include, salary cap, revenue sharing from stadiums and tv contract etc.. Bloggers, research the issues and lets work this deal out for the league. Ths clock is ticking. I will forward our suggestions to the NFL, Gene Upshaw, and ESPN. No spell check on my sidekick.
