You’ve gotta love the NFL.
Tonight’s midnight deadline for the owners and players to reach a new collective bargaining agreement and avoid a lockout - a deadline hyped up for months - has been pushed back by one day.
Both sides have agreed on a 24-hour extension, although many in NFL circles believe that before this new deadline, we’ll see another extension. That extension would push the CBA deadline back another day or two (or three, or ... ).
This is a good sign in that enough progress was made over the last couple days for the sides to even consider an extension worthwhile.
We’ll have to see, however, if anything substantial is accomplished in these extra 24 hours, or if we’re just in for a series of extensions over the next couple weeks.
