CBA Talks Break Down, NFLPA Decertifies
I don't have anything insightful to say here, just wanted to provide FO readers a place to talk about the CBA silliness. I think both sides have really bargained at times in bad faith. The owners basically twiddled their thumbs until this week and Roger Goodell's "We only want to go to 18 games because the fans demand it" is a transparent bunch of crap. On the other hand, this decertification nonsense is a pretty clear end run around the law. The players will still be associating. To me, that counts as a players association. Alas, on to the courts we go.
UPDATE: OK, now the NFL Network says never mind, there may be another delay. Make up your minds, people.
UPDATE AGAIN: As of 5pm EST, the NFLPA did indeed decide to decertify. Just super.
