Settlement passes among NFL owners

Jul 21, 2011 at 4:03 PM--


The first step in ending the NFL lockout, which began on March 11, has finally taken place. On the 132nd day of the lockout, the NFL team owners have voted on the settlement and the new CBA has passed.

The final voting results were 31 to nothing, with only the Oakland Raiders not voting.

The league will be preparing to open up training facilities on Saturday with the league year starting on Wednesday.

During the process, the Hall of Fame game between the Rams and the Bears has been cancelled.

The ball is in the players' court now as everyone waits to see what their next move will be. A conference call among the players will take place at 5 pm Pacific and it is possible that the players will be presented with information on any last minute changes that may have taken place. It is also possible that they may vote on the settlement terms on this call as well.

In order for the lockout to end, the players must take the following steps:

- Settle the Brady versus the NFL and television money deals.
- Vote to re-certify the NFLPA as a union.
- Vote to ratify the new CBA settlement.

UPDATE - 5:30 PM:

Jay Glazer of NFL Network is reporting that the players are saying that they are not going to vote tonight on the conference call that is taking place right now. Reports are that the conference call is rather chaotic and that the call itself is not going very well at the moment.

Levi's Stadium is often criticized for its lack of personality. It's a nice big sports venue in Santa Clara, California, but not much else is typically said. Candlestick Park tends to bring back fonder memories for San Francisco 49ers fans. Yes, it was old. Yes, it was, at times, cold and windy. Levi's Stadium, by the way, is the opposite. It may have taken you a couple of hours to get out of Candlestick Park. With all of its faults, there was so much history there. That's why it will always hold a special place in the hearts of The Faithful. That lack of personality and history hurt Levi's Stadium in ESPN's recent ranking of NFL venues.
