OT: NFL & NFLPA could start CBA negotiations in 6 months

Recommended Posts

I am glad they are hopefully getting a headstart on it. Many contentious issues to resolve.

http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/25915264/nfl-labor-talks-start-6-months

For all the talk of more strife between owners and NFL players' union on the horizon, there is a core group on both sides who have an optimistic view that negotiations to extend the current collective bargaining agreement could get jump-started within the next six months, according to league and union sources.

For players, sources say the goal is to preserve or increase their share of revenues while getting more concessions from owners on former player benefits. The salary cap is projected in 2020 to reach $200 million per team in addition to player benefits.

The NFLPA this week detailed some preparations in case of an eventual work stoppage in 2021, but sources concede that the next six months could set the tone for a more peaceful labor process to extend the deal well before the deadline.

Hola' mi amigo Jim en Malaga.  Como esta'?  Es muy bueno y agradable aqui', no?

At $200 mil for 2020 the salary will have appreciated 67% in the 10 years since 2011.

By anyone's standards that's a healthy growth in both revenues and player salary base.

It's good to hear they're getting a jump on negotiations 'cause this goose is crapping golden eggs neither side should want to see interrupted.

Howdi Mr. Paul, all good here in Spain. I agree there is probably more to lose than gain. I wonder if the NFLPA is going to strong arm more guarantees on long term contracts and offset language. Hopefully they find a flexible framework and meet in the middle. The TV contracts are growing at an exploding pace and there is more than enough money to go around.

Theres not really any contentious issues.  The players dont care about the rookie scale (which was their idea in the first place), they dont care about commish disciplinary powers.  It's all about the money.  They arent going to get much more of a share as the owners locked them out at 50% maybe the owners will concede another % point, which is a $500M concession.  My suspicion is that the major concession will be post career benefits.
