A Month off ???

MINNEAPOLIS -- Court-ordered mediation between the NFL and locked-out players lasted another five hours Wednesday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan adjourned talks until May 16.

The sides met for 26 total hours over four days, trying to settle the consolidated Brady et al v. National Football League et al and Eller et al v. National Football League et al antitrust cases. It was the first set of face-to-face talks between the sides in 34 days, and the next break is set to encompass another 26 days.



"We're going to be back here on May 16 to continue the mediation, and I think everybody thinks it was helpful," NFL Players Association outside counsel Jim Quinn said. "And that's really where we are."

When asked for the reason for the almost-monthlong break in talks, Quinn responded, "That's what the judge wanted, and we follow what the judge wants."

Putting together my list of all possible parameter/scenario changes that might take place between now and May 16th that could affect outcome of the talks...
...
... my sheet is blank.
What a waste of valuable time.
I object your honor!
Why don't we get back together day after tomorrow?

If you have any hunch the legal and appeals system will handle this quickly ... just remember that we're STILL waiting for full resolution on the Williams/Williams/Will Smith StarCaps issue.
