The Latest Dose Of NFL Labor Battle Optimism

From Yahoo's Michael Silver:

Despite a breakdown in communication and trust that boiled over last week, the two sides are closer to an agreement than many people realize – perhaps than even some of the people involved realize. That the respective negotiating teams hung in amid the negativity and held a marathon session Thursday and a shorter one on Friday was a deceptively positive sign.

I've been operating under the assumption that the Green Bay Packers will start training camp at it's usual late July time, and the only effect of the labor battle will be a chaotic free agent period that they'll be well prepared for. So it's good to see that the signs remain positive.

And I'm just glad I'm not a big NBA fan. I'd take the NFL labor battle over the NBA labor battle any year.
