Judge Boylan Sets Another NFL Mediation Session

Judge Arthur J. Boylan, the federal magistrate judge who is mediating the labor dispute between NFL owners and players has scheduled another session for July 19th in Minneapolis according to ESPN.

Boylan made clear that both sides were free to continue their own sessions as they work toward a new collective bargaining agreement.

On Friday, very little progress was made as talks continued in New York, a source told ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio. Lawyers were going to work through the weekend, sources tell ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, and NFL Players Association chief DeMaurice Smith said negotiators will meet again Monday.

The principals in the fight over how to split up over $9 billion in revenue met all week in New York, but still have not reached a new deal as the lockout has dragged on for more than four months. Several teams have already canceled their traditional out-of-town portions of training camp and the Hall of Fame game between Chicago and St. Louis is less than a month away.
