STAR QUARTERBACKS PRESS FOR A DEAL SOON
Thu, 14 Jul 2011 01:45 PM EDT

Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Peyton Manning have called the offer put forth by the players fair for both ends of the bargaining table in an antitrust suit against the league. They said in a statement that it was time to just finish off negotiations regarding the deal and lift the lockout even though this wasn’t easy. All three star quarterbacks spoke as a group for the very first time, both owners and players had spent close to 11 hours in a meeting at a Manhattan law office. Basketball betting lines

Just two hours of the Players’ association’s chief DeMaurice Smith left, the NFL commissioner Roger Goodell then walked out with the owner of the Dallas Cowboys as well as the head of the league’s negotiations Jeff Pash. There were other owners such as Jerry Richardson of Carolina and Pittsburgh’s Art Rooney who also departed around that time. The negotiations are now scheduled to start on Thursday morning, with each day the need to get to a bargain and end the worst work stoppage since back in 87 becomes more dire. Baseball odds

A source with some direct information about the situation said that lots of hard work still remains prior to a collective bargaining agreement being finalized. The source however refused to comment on the deal. When asked if he was sure if the owners will be presented with a new deal by the end of the month the source said he was not sure. Baseball spreads

With the deadline for reaching the agreement heading up next week to get the training camps going the owner told Paolantonio that the owners are not trying to figure out how to get the league up and running on time “so that we don’t lose a week of preseason and we don’t lose $200 million.”

Speaking to the AP New England’s Brady and Brees from New Orleans said “We believe the overall proposal made by the players is fair for both sides and it is time to get this deal done.”

They went on to say  ”This is the time of year we as players turn our attention to the game on the field. We hope the owners feel the same way.”

In response to this the NFL issued a statement of their “We share the view that now is the time to reach an agreement so we can all get back to football and a full 2011 season. We are working hard with the players’ negotiating team every day to complete an agreement as soon as possible.”
