The NFL Teams and their representatives have ratified the proposal 31-0 to end the NFL Lockout. The players conference call expected at 8 pm Eastern. The league year opens wednesday, pending the players vote. The players role in all of this depends on the players reforming as a union and then ratifying this new agreement.
The new league year will open on hopefully the 27th of July (next Wednesday). All is dependent on the players right now.
The NFL expects all other litigation to be dropped. The new CBA should bring peace between the NFL and it’s players for the next ten years, that is through the 2020 season.
The NFL will now also have a new revenue sharing system.
Jeff Pash stated that the Franchise and Transition Tags remain. They also believe that the NFLPA will once again become a union and vote to ratify the CBA as soon as tonight. A sustained medical plan for life, Goodell’s role has never been viewed as any different than league commissioner and He will likely enforce the rules of the NFL upon all players and their negativity placed upon the league as well as any other breaking of the leagues personal conduct policy while the league was in the state of the Lockout.
All of this news I retrieved off NFL Network. They are currently airing a press conference with all of the big whigs live right now.
