Longest Series of Sustained Meetings Scheduled

5

This kind of push for 4 day-long negotiations before the 4th of July weekend seems very promising to me. This is the longest series of scheduled talks since the lockout began. While it could simply be an effort to make up the days that will be lost during the holiday weekend, the optimist could also interpret it as a sign that both sides believe that a final push could end this mess and help the two sides strike a deal before the long weekend, perhaps even announcing the agreement on the joyous holiday, in an attempt to avoid missing any training camp days and preseason games...something both sides should recognize as a detriment that could dilute the quality of football in 2011. It may be Independence Day, but perhaps it will also be the day the owners and players recognized their dependence on each other.

Victor Butler Talks Rob Ryan Defense: DL as FS?!

6

It is great seeing a player so excited to get to practice and learn more. I have a feeling this is part of the culture change Garrett had in mind. Plus, I too am really excited to see what Ryan can do with our defense. __________________ "It's crazy," Butler, a reserve outside linebacker, said gleefully after speaking to a group of kids attending the Premier Football camp at John Paul II High School in Plano. "You've got d-linemen lining up at the free safety spot. I'd love to see Jay Ratliff line up where Alan Ball is. It sounds crazy but when you get out there and run it it makes a lot of sense. I am super excited. I was hoping for [organized team activities]. That's how excited I was. Nobody hopes for OTAs. But I was hoping for OTAs so we can get in this defense and run this defense." Butler's enthusiasm, in part, is derived from curiosity. Ryan's scheme, after all, features a variety of exotic alignments and unconventional blitz packages. From down to down, even the positioning of players can change. "His defense creates a lot of stress," quarterback Stephen McGee. "He knows how to attack formations. They know where certain formations are vulnerable and how they can overload coverages to where guys want to throw the ball. They know weaknesses by formation for most teams. That's why he is so good."

Are Football Players Really Earning Too Much?

79

I found this interesting because of the current lockout and all the talk about the players being millionaires that should be happy just to play football. Apparently, if you compare them to other athletes, NFL payers aren't making that much. I know, it sounds strange, but then you look at the list and there are 2 golfers and 1 basketball player making more than the top earning NFL player AND... Despite football’s popularity, NFL players just don’t earn like the competition. 19 NBA players and 17 MLB players made the list, while only eight football stars were on it. I don't know about you guys, but I think football players should be earning more than other athletes. Their careers are shorter and in my mind their combination of talent and athletic ability are more difficult to find and can't be taught as easily as swinging a bat or golf club. And when you think this is also the greatest earning sports league in the US, it just seems odd. Sure, more players mean the average will be lower, but to have the top earners a fraction of the list just seems wrong in my mind.

The 10 Major Issues at the CBA Negotiating Table

5

This is a good read with more information than propoganda and politics. It discusses the 10 major issues that need to be resolved before a new CBA can be agreed upon and adds the current stance for both sides. It could be debated that this information is just a lot of assumptions, but it certainly seems to stack with what little has been revealed through the media (hidden behind PR statements from both sides).
