CBA Negotiations are reportedly 80-85% complete

One source with intimate knowledge of the ongoing CBA discussions tells CBSSports.com's Mike Freeman that negotiations are "80-85 percent complete."


The same figures who were spouting vitriolic hyperbole and propaganda two months ago are now shaking hands and throwing jokes around at the meetings. "The bullet train is headed towards a deal and the only thing that can stop it is last-minute, rampant stupidity," writes Freeman. Both sides are reportedly making "major concessions," and attorneys have begun reviewing proposals. Participants are now canceling vacations scheduled for the next few weeks because a deal could be finished "within a matter of days."

I'm LMAO Luda. I used to go to Hockey games here in Shreveport (WHEN WE HAD A FRIKKIN HOCKEY TEAM), and you're right, now that I think back, I don't remember seeing black folks attending. What's up with that?

I remember a famous black comedian addressed that question.

I'm paraphrasing...

Because Its a bunch of crazy white guys who all wanna fight, playing in the freezing damn cold, carrying huge sticks and razor blades on their feet.

Because it's true we would just be skating and hitting people to start a fight. The thing about it is I'm a sports fan so I check out different sports every once in while but I was watching Hockey and I was lost I didn't understand any of it.

Hockey may be the best example of a sport that doesn't translate to TV very well.

I've never seen an NHL game live, but I saw a local minor league Hockey game live and the action was freaking violently fast and furious. TV can't even come close to the excitement a live hockey game brings.

I'm pretty ignorant of hockey rules too, but most hockey fans put it right up there with football as an awesome sport.
