Court Cancels Mediation, Settlement Negotiations Continue

Starting a new thread on this because it looks like pretty big news. Judge Boylan has decided not to have the court ordered mediation next week and allow the NFL and NFLPA to continue their ongoing "settlement discussions"

Re: Court Cancels Mediation, Settlement Negotiations Continue

What's the difference between the court ordered mediation and ongoing "settlement discussions"?

Best I can explain it, it means the players are winning.

Honestly, I don't know how to succinctly explain it. Not as well as JoeRedskin could.

From Florio:

This could mean that communications will continue, either in person or via other means, into next week and beyond.

It makes sense for the mediator, U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan, to push the parties to try to settle the case now, before the Eighth Circuit issues a ruling on whether the lockout will be lifted. After a final ruling is issued, one side will have a lot more leverage. For now, the uncertainty can be used by both sides to strike a win-win deal.

Thatís why, in our view, itís incumbent on the NFL to be prepared to make an offer aimed genuinely at restoring labor peace, without regard to the concept of winning the best possible deal.

I think at the heart of it both sides are serious about trying to strike a deal vs being forced to sit in a room together and act like they are trying to strike a deal.

Re: Court Cancels Mediation, Settlement Negotiations Continue

crazy, in mediation the lawyers ruled, now in "settlement talks" the lawyers are not around. I would have thought it would have been the other way around. Regardless, I think this has to be a good sign, as the court (ie Judge Nelson) seemingly would have had to sign off on her order for mediation being cancelled, and by that, I would think both sides must have at least seemed like a solution was possible.

Funny how this lockout has actually made good use of Florio's background as a lawyer.

I think this is a legit sign that an end to this mess could be near.

I don't see how this is a sign the players are winning. I take it as a sign demaurice smith is actually negotiating in good faith for the first time so a mediator is no longer necessary.

I'm not sure either side is winning, but it seems to be an indication the owners are starting to budge a bit.

Well the NFLPA offered settlement as an option in the past, and the owners rejected. Though I believe this a different sort of settlement
