Not relevant to the NFL at all, but had to put this somewhere and figured here would be the best place.

Anyway, for those of you who follow me on Twitter you might have seen I had a bad dream last night. Featuring it in was a girl I knew at Uni.

Out of "I hope she's alright" (*cough* "I wonder how she's aged" *cough*) curiosity I googled the aforementioned lady and was directed to a set of Facebook thumbnails, one of which featured some guy in a Patriots jersey.

"I hope that's not her with that idiot," I thought to myself, but clicking on the photo I saw a name I recognised.

So with that I have to say, apologies to saxoneagle, and erm, isn't it a small world we live in? :D

Just got a steal on eBay. A Keyshawn Johnson Cowboys throwback jersey, our leading WR in 2004, not worn and compete with tags for a tenner ...

You know you're mad when your dreams involve the BBS. (Well, in some sort of crazy way anyway) :lux:

That backpackers place in Zambia, but based on the upload dates I think you and the lady in question were there quite a way apart.

Not gonna comment, just read and decide for yourself:

The NFL has asked owners to keep their schedules open next week, when the league holds meetings in Chicago, NFL Network reporter Albert Breer confirmed Tuesday.
The NFL has asked owners to keep their schedules open next week, when the league holds meetings in Chicago, NFL Network reporter Albert Breer confirmed Tuesday.

The owners are scheduled to meet June 21, and the memo from the league has fueled speculation that perhaps the league and the NFL Players Association are making progress in their negotiations toward an agreement that would end the three-month-old lockout.

Last week, the sides concluded two days of what sources described as "very serious talks" in an attempt to build off previous secret negotiations in suburban Chicago. It is believed last week's talks took place in a Long Island, N.Y., hotel.

According to sources, these meetings are expected to happen frequently for the foreseeable future and NFL spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed the negotiations would eventually resume.

"NFL owners and players have engaged in further confidential discussions before Chief Magistrate Judge Boylan this week," Aiello posted on his Twitter account this past Wednesday. "Those discussions will continue."

According to Aiello, NFL attendees at last week's meetings included Commissioner Roger Goodell and owners Jerry Richardson (Carolina Panthers), Clark Hunt (Kansas City Chiefs), Robert Kraft (New England Patriots), John Mara (New York Giants) and Dean Spanos (San Diego Chargers). All five owners are members of the NFL's labor committee.

The players were represented by NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith and NFLPA executive committee members Kevin Mawae (president), Domonique Foxworth (Baltimore Ravens), Tony Richardson (New York Jets), Jeff Saturday (Indianapolis Colts) and Mike Vrabel (Kansas City Chiefs).

Goodell later held a conference call with season ticket holders of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, his 19th such call with NFL ticket holders this offseason. According to a Twitter post from Aiello, Goodell told fans that "talks are going on. Both sides are working hard to reach an agreement. That's a positive step for everybody."

"We are going to continue to work at it," Goodell continued. "I believe both sides want to find solutions. I'm hopeful we're going to be successful. It's the objective of everybody involved with the NFL to play a full 2011 season."

The secret meetings in suburban Chicago lasted three days, running up to Friday's hearing at the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis on the NFL's appeal of a lockout-lifting injunction granted to the players by a district court. After that set of talks, the league and players put out a joint statement.

"The parties met pursuant to court mediation," the statement said. "Owners and players were engaged in confidential discussions before Chief Magistrate Judge Boylan. The court has ordered continued confidentiality of the mediation sessions."

Some snippets being 'leaked' about the new CBA:

As predicted by many around here, sneaky Jerry Richardson has positioned the Panthers very nicely. No doubt he'll be leading the charge on the rookie salary cap...

Panthers. Superbowl Champions 2013. You read it here first.

The movement is great news.

It helps that they've kept Richardson out of the negotiating room the last few weeks ;)

Yes, that has been noticed around here!

Bill Belichick's secret videos of the players' private meetings with their advisors have also been a great help.

That hasn't been done for 4 years. :p

We do better without the cheating (in the regular season anyway)

Halling left for the boxing.

Shame, I kinda liked Halling but did find him a bit boring and annoying at times. Mike Carlson is quality, Sky should definitely try to get him in but they don't give enough time for analysis so he'd probably be wasted there anyway.

ardeo 24-06-2011 01:24 PM

Glad Halling has gone, although have to listen to him on boxing still, but he's not too bad on that.

Carlson remains a cut above everyone else!

jazman 24-06-2011 01:26 PM

Never took to Halling at all, I wonder if he will still do commentary of the Beebs football league coverage ...

jazman 24-06-2011 01:26 PM

And for the record, Total Access is an awful programme in the off season ...

England 24-06-2011 01:42 PM

so what is the situation with next season, being a very simple person I have no idea what this lockout is all about and what it actually means. As I was hoping to go to Green bay in November I am guessing there is no certainty the season will go ahead, so pointless booking anything.
