NFL Players Accept Settlement 'Conditionally'

Yes, we have the workings of an acceptable agreement to the players on the table but they apparently still have a remaining issues still on the table:

The players vote is conditional, meaning they're prepared to forward the settlement if certain issues can be resolved with the owners.

You can find the entire story stream at the link provided above, including updates on the demands of the player plaintiffs. Apparently Logan Mankins and Vincent Jackson ARE still demanding $10M a piece to sign off on a deal:

Freeman is probably right. Earlier this week, it had been reported that Jackson in particular had "softened [his] stance," and Jackson himself claims that he just wants to play football and that he has "made no demands." That doesn't sound like someone who's going to turn this into a protracted battle that will probably accomplish nothing except delay the start of the season and turn Vincent Jackson into a nationwide villain. I bet Mankins will eventually back down as well. But you never know - greed knows no bounds.

The NFLPA also wants about $320M is lost revenue due to the non-salary cap year we just completed. They might have some grievance there but I fail to see how the named players deserve anymore money than the players they were supposedly representing. If they all 1,900 of them would have joined the complaint if they would get an extra 10 double large for doing so.
