NFL Lockout 2011: Progress? NFL, Players Can't Agree On An Answer

Progress or no progress? I would assume that the NFL and the players can agree that there were, indeed, court-ordered mediated talks between the two sides in the NFL labor dispute over the past couple of days.

What they can’t agree on is whether or not anything got accomplished.

The NFL says yes. Here is NFL lead negotiator Jeff Pash:

“We had a good discussion today,” Pash told ESPN. “I’ve said it many times the only way we’re going to get this accomplished is face-to-face dialogue and really digging into the issues and I think we had a good step in that direction today. And I hope that we’ll continue, confident it’s going to continue and we’ll be back early next month to continue that process.”

The players say, umm, what are you talking about? Here is NFL Players Association president Kevin Mawae:

“We are not anywhere closer to a deal now than we were in March,” Mawae said during a Sirius NFL radio interview.

I am not sure what to believe any more. Let’s just hope these guys actually get serious before part of a season is flushed away by greed.
