The NFL players today should be dancing in the streets.
No, there is not labor deal in place and there has been no court order to send the two sparring parties back to mediation.
Defunct leader DeMaurice Smith has however, taken a massive pay cut until this whole CBA thing is taken care of. To precisely zero. As in he is not getting paid.
I wonder if he simply has no money left from the union coffers now that he has paid for all the attorneys hourly rates?
Regardless, the players should be dancing today because they are now paying Smith exactly what he is worth.
