The NFL owners are expected to issue a press release this afternoon. According to Daniel Kaplan of the Sports Business Journal, expect the press release to be an official announcement of a lockout. The only positive news is that the owners have agreed to bring more financial data to today’s bargaining session, although it won’t be be anywhere near the open-book policy the union has been seeking.
Also this afternoon the NFLPA could decertify and file an injunction in Judge Doty’s court.
At this point, the most positive case scenario would be the NFL agreeing to an extension of the CBA talks and postponing the lockout deadline coming tonight at midnight. This scenario is possible but doe not seem likely.
