Bleacher report title The media are in a bind | Bleacher Sports article Bleachers report title NFL Media: Media are in “a bind” over the lockout article A couple of weeks ago, we were writing about how the NFL was in a “black hole” over a lockout that could have an effect on the league’s revenue, its ability to increase its profit and even its future.
As the season wore on, though, the NFL finally acknowledged that it was in the black hole.
Now, after weeks of denials, the league and its owners have finally released some information about what they plan to do to avoid a lockout.
In a new joint statement from the league, the three owners, who have collectively owned the league since the merger in 1997, declared that they are willing to negotiate with the players union to “reform the collective bargaining agreement and provide meaningful relief to players.”
While it’s possible that some sort of collective bargaining deal would be the answer, the timing of the statement is significant because it means that the players have been negotiating over the last several months.
According to the league statement, “The owners recognize that the owners have the right to negotiate with the union for collective bargaining purposes.”
This is a pretty significant statement.
There are plenty of times in the modern NFL, when owners are willing and able to negotiate and the union agrees to concessions and increases, that the collective agreement is simply a rubber stamp for the league.
But this time, the owners and the players have publicly stated that they want to negotiate a collective bargaining settlement that would allow the league to keep the revenue it has and increase the money it can make from the players.
This new statement doesn’t just confirm what the owners had been saying all along.
It indicates that the owners and union are ready to reach a deal.
The owners also want to get rid of the lockout protections, which the players’ collective bargaining representative had been able to use to prevent the league from increasing its revenue.
It’s a good step for the players, but it’s a step that could easily be reversed by a lockout, so there’s no need to rush the end of the season.
Still, the statement does give some insight into what’s likely to be the case for a lockout in the future.
Here’s what the statement says about how to avoid one: “The owners believe that the best way to keep players in the game and help the owners make a profit is to agree to the new collective bargaining arrangement.
It must also allow the owners time to restructure the players contracts to reduce the risk of future player injury. “
The agreement must include meaningful financial incentives for the owners to continue to make money while making the league stronger and healthier.
These policies must be consistent with the way the league operates today. “
Additionally, the players are committed that the league should implement an injury policy to ensure the safety of players and the fans.
“We appreciate the cooperation and support of the league on this important matter and look forward to continuing to work with the players to reach an agreement that will benefit all parties.” “
In other words, the only way for the lockout to end is if the owners agree to some sort of deal with the NFLPA, and the owners are prepared to accept some sort-of compromise in order to get it done. “

And while that’s good news for the teams, it’s bad news for their players, who may be feeling the effects of the increased risk of injury in the off-season.
If the players really want to keep playing football, they have to be willing to take a pay cut to play football, and they have no incentive to do that, because the players don’t have to make a paycut if the league is willing to offer some sort a compromise.
For the players who are really worried about injury, it sounds like the best possible situation is for the NFL to offer the players something like a $2 million pay cut over the course of the next three years, in order for them to play in the NFL.
That’s a lot of money for a player, but what would that look like for the other owners?
The NFL has a reputation for being a very tight-lipped business.
Players don’t like it when the NFL leaks information, so it’s not surprising that the NFL would not want to make public how it’s going to handle any kind of lockout.
The statement also gives some indication of the kinds of concessions that could be coming.
“Under the new agreement, the teams will receive a one-time payment of $300,000 to cover
