Right now it certainly does not sound like NFL players and owners are on the same page when it comes to getting a new collective bargaining agreement in place for the 2011 season.
It seems pretty simple. Owners want an 18-game regular season. Players really don't want it, but if they are going to be forced to play two additional regular-season games they want additional compensation. Right now, the sides seem to be at a stalemate.
See, stalemate. Let's just hope this gets ironed out and we have football as usual next season. All the posturing aside, I can't imagine anyone is foolish enough to leave millions of dollars on the table.
