Day Three Of Court-Ordered Mediation Lasts Seven Hours
NFL, players end Day 3 of court-ordered talks
(AP) – The NFL and its locked-out players have
wrapped up a third day of court-ordered talks at the federal
courthouse in Minneapolis.
The two sides met for about seven hours Tuesday and will resume
talks Wednesday morning. They met for 13 hours over two days last
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones joined the NFL contingent,
along with Commissioner Roger Goodell and others, including Denver
owner Pat Bowlen and Green Bay Packers CEO Mark Murphy. All
Hall of Fame defensive end Carl Eller was among the players on
hand. He said only that it was a “tough day” before walking away.
The lockout is now in its second month. A federal judge is
expected to decide soon on the players' request to halt the NFL's
first work stoppage since 1987.
