NFL, NFL Players Association cancel second day of talks

By Cindy Boren

The NFL and the NFL Players Association have canceled a second day of labor negotiations, set for today at an undisclosed location, according to multiple reports.

Both sides met Wednesday as they try to reach agreement on a collective bargaining agreement before the present one expires March 3 and a lockout of players occurs. According to nfl.com, neither side would comment on Wednesday's talks.

They met Saturday in Dallas and issued a joint statement then: "The NFL and NFL Players Association met for two hours today in a continuing effort to narrow the differences and reach a fair agreement that will benefit the players, teams and fans. We plan to increase the number, length and intensity of bargaining sessions so that we can reach agreement before the (March 3) expiration of the current CBA."

Oh, please, please, please let there be a lockout so that Little Danny can sit and stew!

A year off would be a nice reality check for both the owners and the players.
