Though the NFL owners meeting that took place in Chantilly, Va., today has broken up, the 10 owners that make up the labor committee have begun another meeting with commissioner Roger Goodell.

We’re closing in on 24 hours before the CBA expires, and it doesn’t appear that anything will stop the lockout train that’s a comin’ down the tracks.

As the 22 remaining owners rushed to their vehicles to get out of town, a few briefly spoke with reporters, including those from the New York Post and

Said Colts owner (and Twitter enthusiast) Jim Irsay: “We're not announcing a lockout or anything like that as of tonight."

He also was asked if he expected a lockout to begin Thursday night: "I don't know. These things change. Don't want to make a prediction."

And this from Jets owner Woody Johnson: "I'm still optimistic and we've still got a few hours to go."

It sounds like the two sides will meet again Thursday, and the federal mediator could call the NFL owners and the NFLPA together tonight for another bargaining session.

Owners meet, disband, don't say much

Money, money, money, the world's evil.  Nice, looks like no football.  Soon no basketball.  What is left? BASEBALL.  Well, that is ok, but come on, you all make a ton of money and we all cannot understand how you are arguing over billions when we all argue over pennies.  Think about it for a moment.  No football means no money for you from us and trust me, we will remember for a while.  Sorry, but you cannot have Mark McGwire or Sammy Sosa come to your sport and go for the home run record.  Maybe, Peyton or Tom will pass for 7000 yards or something.  You will need something that big for a lot of fans to forgive.
