Negotiations still going well... keep your fingers crossed

Lately I've followed the 'don't jynx this' model for discussing the NFL negotiations, but I feel a brief update is in order. The week representatives from the NFL and NFLPA have been meeting privately in Long Island, NY in the hopes of hammering out the principals on a new CBA. There have been a few reports that a deal is virtually done, but nothing has been announced officially, now NFL Network's Albert Breer is reporting the sides will meet again next week to resume talks face-to-face.

The next key date to watch for is June 21st, which is scheduled to be the next time the owners meet to discuss the league. There should be a suitable understanding from both sides that hammering out a deal before this date would be extremely beneficial so owners can be notified at the same time, and by extension lift the lockout.

I hate to say it again, but 'time will tell'- at least for now everything seems to be movie in a positive direction and at the least its a good thing the sides are willing to keep meeting each other.
