    Just heard it a second ago. Hopefully someone can confirm, I'm sure someone else is listening. Thus far, no comments reported.



    Before people run around screaming that the season is over, this doesn't mean that won't meet again.
     
  2. Hmm, my pessimistic attitude allowed me to forsee this. Yet, I'm still bumed. :(

    Yeah I heard it too. I just posted a topic about it, at exactly the same time as you, with almost the exact same subject line.

    The optimist in me wants to hope they don't need anymore meetings...just an announcement. But hey...I'm crazy and hopelessly naive.

    Like I said, this doesn't mean the season is over. This just means they're not meeting tomorrow as of yet. This could all be clockwork with the media and for all we know they're going to Secaucus, NJ to have a meeting in 8 hours.

    "No new talks planned" were reported right after the last 3 meetings concluded...I would give this story a little bit of time to develop before investing in it.

    I must've stopped listening a second before this was announced, was it right after the interview with Howard Berger? If so that could explain all the sudden phone calls he was getting during the interview.

    Mabey a proposal was made tonight...now one side has to get think it over for a day or so? Things like this take time and thought. So mabey the players well think over this deal, likely decline it. Come back next week with some more talks.

    I think next week if nothing is done, nothing well get done. But i'm not dying yet.

    Exactly, I don't plan to go downstairs to get some water from my fridge. I just go and do it. Just because nothing is planned, doesn't mean nothing will be planned. Perhaps, both sides want to go home and think about this and be sure this is what they want or what they don't want to do.

    That's the same article that's been up pretty much all afternoon just with a different opening line saying the time the meetings ended. I don't think it looks too good, but one way or the other just make an announcement as to what's going on! :banghead:

    The last time these groups met (as in couple months ago) they made it clear they didn't want to talk anymore and were angry. They've now met three times (maybe it's four). They obviously are finding some common ground, otherwise they'd all storm off. I think they are putting something together, and it might almost be finished.

    either:
    a)the season is done
    b)the reports are premature or wrong
    c)the deal is done

    its just a source telling the cp, no one has any idea whats really going on in this whole situation. i hope its c, it could be b, but has a good chance at being a.

    or d) the lawyers are now involved writing up details and proposed text
    (this takes at least 24 hours, hence a pause in talks)

    A league spokesman said that they were "finished for the night." Certainly seems better that way . . . .

    . . . hopefully

    Well well well, this looks both discouraging or promising. This could mean all four of the points listed above.

    BRING IT BACK!
