In what might be HUGE news, Daniel Kaplan is reporting that due to the fact that the federal court is engaged in confidential settlement talks with both sides, next week's federal mediation has been cancelled.

[/QUOTE]

This could be HUGE... it is possible that major progress has been made if settlement talks are still going on, which it sounds like they are based on the mediation cancellation.

Maybe we'll have an end to this soon. God, I hope so.

you shouldn't.

capital has triumphed over labor once again, simply by gaming the legal system.

they've won because they're in better position to weather a federal case.

they've won because it's easier to marshall 31 white millionaires than 1500+ football players.

they've won because the system is gamed in their favor.

fuck all our lives.

I've never wanted so much for one of your posts to be correct before... At this point, I don't know whose "side" I'm on but I am not exactly happy with either side... but I'm okay with the fact I'm selfish and want football to get on with it.

if you just want football regardless of the cost it's a great thing.

If you give a shit about the plight of organized labor vs. management it's the most depressing thing that could happen.

seriously if you're a laborer or menial worker (every person on this messageboard ) you should have been cheering for the players.

Labor v Capital trumps everything.

fiz's obscene words hurt my eyes, I don't know if I can post anymore.

just kidding. not that easy to get rid of me!

anyways, I wonder what repercussions an ownership victory will have on the longterm labor situation between players and owners.

This isn't about organized labor versus management at all. Football is already a special case as are all major sports leagues. Players are treated better than most any other worker and with a minimum salary of over 300,000 it is hard to feel sorry for the trodden masses. Even practice squad teams get 5000 a week.

Homestly the players never had a leg to stand on to begin with. If we were talking players 30 or 40 years ago then you could have made a case. But honestly players are pampered and treated damn well. Who among us wouldn't trade places if we had the talent to be able to play football at that level.

The whole complaint that players are getting done in and treated unfairly is crap IMO.
