NFL 2 Years Away From Work Stoppage

The NFL Owners have until November 10th to opt out of the extension of the collective bargaining agreement and if it's up to Ralph Wilson of the Bills and Mike Brown of the Bengals, they'll turn down the extension. I think the NFL is two years away from a work stoppage.

The NFL and its players association are on a collision course for playing without a salary cap or some type of work stoppage.  Two years ago the NFL owners voted 30-2 to extend the collective bargaining agreement which now gives the players 60% of the gross revenues. 

The owners have to give the players an additional $850 to $900 dollars worth of salaries and bonuses.  Brown and Wilson voted against the increase and the extension of the agreement between the players and the owners.

There will be a great deal of discussion of the collective bargaining agreement at this week's owners meetings.  It seems that the owners have come around to Brown  and Wilson's thinking.  A vote is against the extension is expected before November.
