Update: Upon recent developments a players vote is not expected to come on Friday.
What are we doing here at Toro Times? Much like Labron James in the 4th…Not a damn thing! We sit idly by awaiting a decision from the players side on when to vote on the new CBA. If they decide to vote then we will be waiting to hear word on whether or not the NFLPA* executive committee will choose to vote “Yes” to recommend the new CBA to the rest of the NFL players. Which many people expect the NFLPA* executive committee to vote today.
The NFL owners chose to ratify the new CBA yesterday in Atlanta with a vote of 31-0. The Oakland Raiders chose to abstain from their vote due to football and economic reasons.
The owners have given the players until Tuesday of next week to vote and them the offer on the table will be withdrawn and the NFL Lockout will press on. Much to ours and your dismay.
So let me reiterate as we set around like Labron in the 4th and do nothing while awaiting the decision of the players we also feel much like Bart Scott because we “Can’t wait!”
