also interesting to note...

might be more coaches out there who feel the same way.

There was an article out a few days ago with the Jags and Redskins staff feeling the same way

what is US Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan role in all of this? if he is there how secret is this?
i'd go with secret meaning unpublicized as in the media wasn't informed. (hmmm...locked out again?)

it sounds like it was a bit of an impromptu meeting to begin with and as things were discussed, more were invited. boylan was probably there more as a witness to what was discussed more than anything.

Greg_A_Bedard Boylan signed the order cutting off mediation for settlement talks.
AlbertBreer Just got to my hotel room ... Read the court filing on next week's mediation being cancelled. Wording is interesting, to say the least.
might the end be near?

not getting my hopes up. big roller coaster, though.

more...

AlbertBreer It reads ... "Whereas, The Court has been engaged in confidential settlement discussions involving the above captioned matter ..."

(cont): "... it deems it appropriate to cancel the mediation session previously scheduled in Minneapolis for June 7 and June 8."

AlbertBreer OK, in layman's terms ... Parties are in "settlement discussions", per the court, which isn't the same, but not far from CBA negotiations.
AlbertBreer ... In 1993, the last time issues this serious existed, the NFL and players reached a "settlement". Terms of the next CBA were in it.

Secret meetings in the burbs.

Exactly how I thought progress would be made.

"I'm going to be nice," Smith said. "No comment."

Damn, D. Smith gets on my last nerve. For being such a "smart guy", he sure makes some annoying ass comments. Just say "No comment" asshole. We are not here to listen to your attempts at humor.

Jerry Jones can suck a fat one too. Riding off in a Ford Escape.... oooh, look he's trying to save money. Please.

Other than that, this is better than nothing.

I think DeSmith is realizing he's lost this battle and is frustrated because he's seeing the mistake he made by not caving in sooner. I'm glad he's frustrated. Bum deserves it for screwing the fans, the players, and the game most importantly, over.

Hope he gets fired.
