All eyes on talks

Everyone’s eyes from fans to owners are fixated to the ongoing labor discussions to see if a new collective bargaining agreement can be reached in time to save the preseason.

At the very least both sides are doing their darnedest to get there.

Negotiating teams for owners and players met Thursday for over 12.5 hours as talks wrapped up shortly after 10:30 p.m., according to NFL Network’s Albert Breer. Breer also added that today was a very tough day, but progress was made and that they will meet again 9:00 a.m. ET.

At this point I don’t care about progress being made or how tough it is. Either get something done already or cancel the season. That way we can get on with our lives already.

Going to ESPN, Pro Football Talk and Sports Illustrated’s websites is like watching the movie “Groundhog Day.” Every day since the lockout started it has been progress is being made.

Here is a suggestion, go to your sources find out what you know and then actually give people something. Seeing a report that owners and players were talking about free agency or a rookie wage scale is a lot better than repeating progress is being made.

In the end, hopefully something gives soon, because reporting on the talks are getting to the brink of insanity.
