Collective Bargaining Agreement
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said he believes that there will be an agreement soon with the players’ union for testing for human growth hormone.
Less than 18 months after the league and players ended a lockout, NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith and union president Domonique Foxworth used a Super Bowl news conference to lay out a series of complaints about safety issues on Thursday.
“Most importantly to our fans, who love and have missed NHL hockey, I am sorry,” Bettman said. “I know that an explanation or an apology will not erase the hard feelings that have built up over the past few months, but I owe you an apology nevertheless.”
The NHL has wiped out all games through Jan. 14, and if it needs to make any more cancellations, the entire season could be the next thing to go.
For all you hockey fans, I know that you will be back, as will I. But for the rest of the country, the NHL’s existence is just a nasty rumor at this point. It’s a joke on both ends. I hate the NHL.
The NHL and the players’ association did all their talking at the bargaining table, far away from the public eye. With another round of talks scheduled just one day after more than seven hours of negotiations, perhaps progress is being made.
The news came a day after a league-imposed deadline passed for a deal with the players’ association that would allow for a full season.
It’s time for the league’s owners to voice their concerns and let Bettman know that he does not have the authority to ruin the NHL. The fans need to get louder and voice their concerns as well. The time is now, or the season will be gone before you know it.
There’s a growing chance that the Rangers won’t get a chance to show their fans and the rest of the NHL how good they are. A work stoppage is looming over the league.
The head of the NHL players’ union said Monday that negotiations on a new collective bargaining agreement will begin “very quickly” — perhaps as early as this week.
NFL owners and players were all smiles after agreeing on a new labor deal. And why not? Both sides were feeling like winners.
The NBA’s labor deal has expired, and the league has locked out its players, the second pro sports league shut down by labor strife.
NFL owners and players met in the Boston area Wednesday in the latest attempt to work out a new collective bargaining agreement, a person with knowledge of the talks told The Associated Press.
While he cannot comment on any new contract extension due to the pending end of the NBA’s collective bargaining agreement in July, Deron Williams would like to remain with the Nets.
Giants co-owner John Mara joined the NFL group negotiating with the players’ union Tuesday, the first team owner to participate since a federal mediator began overseeing the talks.
