NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith is advising players to vote in favor of the deal. Schefter also indicates that Smith will ?"expedite the remaining issues" before the first pre-season game is to be played in an effort to ensure no more games are lost. ?The NFL has already cancelled the Hall of Fame game.
More good news. ?Seems like this is going to become official tomorrow, and then we can put this mess behind us. Although losing the Hall of Fame Game is a little upsetting, if all goes as planned tomorrow, we'll have made it through this with only minor casualties.
