The NFL Lockout Remains, In the hands of the NFLPA

When will the NFL Lockout officially end?

By Matt Noonan 

The NFL Lockout is almost over, yet, despite the owners vote on Thursday, it’s officially in the hands of the players. Although, do the players really want to be held accountable or responsible for delaying the start of the 2011 season?

I don’t think so.

On Friday, reports surfaced that the players will most likely not vote, yet instead, focus their attention on Myra Kraft, the wife of New England Patriots owner, Bob Kraft, who passed away this past week after losing her battle with cancer.

NFLPA president, Kevin Mawae, released a statement to the league on Friday, which read, “Player leadership is discussing the most recent written proposal with the NFL, which includes a settlement agreement deal terms and the right process for addressing recertification. There will not be any further NFLPA statements today respect for the Kraft family while they mourn the loss of Myra Kraft.”

According to multiple reports, had the players agreed on the new CBA, (Collective Bargaining Agreement), the 2011 season would have begun on Wednesday at 2:00pm eastern.

However, the players can wait until next Tuesday, July 26 to cast their vote. Yet, it seems that some believe the players still have a few issues with the new CBA, which would last approximately 10-years.

All in all, it seems like the NFL is on its way back, although, when will the new season begin, continues to be a major question mark.
