deal reportedly reached, player rep formality only thing left
 
[url=http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/6797238/2011-nfl-lockout-owners-players-come-deal-all-points-sources-say]2011 NFL lockout -- Owners, players come to deal on all points, sources say - ESPN[/url]

[quote]The NFL Players Association and the league's owners have reached agreement on the remaining points needed in their 10-year labor deal, sources from both sides said.

Despite the fact the new agreement will require a majority vote from the players, that part of the deal between the two sides is considered a formality, according to sources.

The NFLPA is making plans for a major press conference Monday. But first the player reps' executive committee is scheduled to fly to Washington, D.C., on Sunday so they can vote Monday.

Just as the NFL would not have called a vote Thursday in Atlanta without knowing it would pass in the way it did -- 31-0 with one abstention -- the NFLPA would also not be going forward without that assurance.

^ Didn't the writer forget the * at the end of NFLPA*? Aren't they supposed to carry that until they become a union again? lol.

For some reason when I heard that Al Davis abstained my first thought was ... didn't they abstain the first go around (in the 80's) also along with one or two other teams?

I can't wait until the NFLPA* becomes the NFLPA and football can resume. ;)

I never thought I'd be so excited to see preseason Redskins football. Here's to training camp position battles, welcoming new free agents, going to TC practices open to the public, and watching the new season kick off on Sept. 11th. :food-smil
