The secret meeting between NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the NFLPA's DeMaurice Smith isn't so secret anymore as more news on Wednesday night's meet-and-greet continues to spill out. We've already identified many of the folks in attendance at the meeting but there's one that we missed -- mediatior Arthur Boylan.
The two sides previously met with Boylan in May but not much progress was made. It's unclear how much progress has been made this time around but it's a positive that the two sides are talking.
According to the Washington Post's Mark Maske, talks will continue into Thursday as Friday's court date, which will go a long way in deciding the future of the lockout, looms.
Let's hope these talks are about coming to an agreement and ending the lockout. Fans should prefer that the two sides come to a long-term agreement instead of letting the court decide the future of football.
Stay tuned for more NFL lockout news.
