NFL owners overwhelmingly approved a deal to end the lockout on Thursday. Only one problem: The players aren’t ready to join them just yet. And it seems a vote before the weekend is unlikely.
NFL owners voted to end the lockout on Thursday, but players have yet to draw a tally on the measure. In fact, they don’t seem happy at all, many taking to Twitter last night to voice their displeasure. It’s not exactly surprising — the dispute dates all the way back to 2008.
From fans to players to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, reactions were mixed on Thursday’s vote by owners in favor of a tentative 10-year agreement to end the lockout.
