and have decided they are making enough money for now. 'Bout damn time...

The NFL Players Association and the league's owners have reached agreement on the remaining points needed in their 10-year labor deal, sources from both sides said.

Despite the fact the new agreement will require a majority vote from the players, that part of the deal between the two sides is considered a formality, according to sources.

The NFLPA is making plans for a major press conference Monday. But first the player reps' executive committee is scheduled to fly to Washington, D.C., on Sunday so they can vote Monday.

Vote on it today. Get to work. Don't drag it out until the weekend. The players think they are physically and mentally ready to play football but they're not. Not having real, team organized activities this offseason is not a good thing. And they need to be smart about the preseason games. Go ahead and cancel week one. There's nothing good that could come from it. The play is going to suffer and more injures are going to happen early on as it is.

I believe we can start signing our FA and other FA on Saturday 7/30/2011. Players will start reporting to camp midweek next week.
