BLOG: Owners Jump The Gun, Lockout Continues
By Lesley Van Arsdall
So, the lockout continues for yet another day.
It looks like the NFL owners may have jumped the gun a bit, handing over a pill the players felt too bitter to swallow.
Clearly, the players must have some trust issues with the NFL owners .
On Thursday, the owners felt confident enough to ratify a final CBA agreement, they must have felt it was fair and would be agreed to by the players, since most were planning on opening training facilities Saturday.
I guess the players must’ve felt they were being strong-armed into a deal without all the language being clarified. The NFLPA made an announcement on Friday saying they won’t even talk about it until Monday.
I’m sure there’s more fun to come.
