Goodell and Smith to Meet on Thursday

Commissioner Roger Goodell and NFLPA chief DeMaurice Smith were not at Tuesday’s meeting at a Manhattan law firm’s headquarters. On Thursday, Goodell and Smith will resume their meetings, with owners and players present. Those talks could last into the weekend if a new CBA appears imminent; the sides did not get together on weekends during negotiations over the last month.

“If things are really close, you could say working through the weekend is possible,” a person with knowledge of the talks told The Associated Press on Tuesday. “But they would need to be really close. If not, they will probably take the weekend off and go back to work next week. But time is running out.”

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because a judge has directed that details of the court-ordered mediated negotiations not be disclosed.

    They’ve gotta make it happen! They are too close to not make it happen. Get ready for NFL football…now if you’re an NBA fan…you may want to focus on college hoops this year.
