Shutdown Corner - NFL

Yahoo! Sports has obtained a copy of the email sent from NFLPA head DeMaurice Smith just a few minutes ago, shortly after the league voted to ratify its proposal. The NFLPA started its conference call with the player representatives from each team at 8:00 p.m. ET.


As you know the Owners have ratified their proposal to settle our differences. It is my understanding that they are forwarding it to us. 

As you may have heard, they apparently approved a supplemental revenue sharing proposal.  Obviously, we have not been a part of those discussions. 

As you know from yesterday, issues that need to be collectively bargained remain open, other issues such as workers compensation, economic issues and end of deal terms remain unresolved.  

There is no agreement between the NFL and the Players at this time.  I look forward to our call tonight."
