NFLPA wants 10 years of financials for extension

At 4:45 PM EST Friday, NFLPA Executive Director DeMaurice Smith addressed the media and informed them of what the union was requiring from the owners in order to agree to an extension of the CBA: 10 years of audited financial documents.

"We met with the owners until about 4:00 today. We discussed a proposal that they had presented," Smith said. "At this time, significant differences continue to remain. We informed the owners that significant differences remain.

If there was going to be a request for an extension, we asked for 10 years of audited financial documents to accompany any extension and we told them to please let us know by 5:00 PM today."

With that, Smith might as well have slammed the mic and walked off, because the gauntlet was firmly thrown down and the ball placed in the owners' court.

But once again, it all comes down to whether the owners are willing to provide financial documents now or risk the possibility that such documents would be produced in legal discovery anyway. And they have about 10 minutes to make that call before the NFL as we know it disappears for a while.

There is no way the union needs 10 years worth of financial records to get a deal done.  The issue is not what the owners' financial condition was in 1991, the issue is what the financial issues are in 2010-2011 and how that projects into the future.  MAYBE, you need to go back two or three years to look for trends, but not 10.  That's overkill if you ask me.

It'll never happen. No way. This is going to be settled through the anti-trust lawsuit and a lot of litigation. I blame the owners, but it's hard to pick a side when the two groups cannot find a way to play nice with $9,000,000,000.00 to play with annually.
