"After more than four months of labor strife that essentially knocked out the 2011 offseason, NFL players and owners are finally in lockstep on the most important issue: They’re planning to strike a deal on a new collective bargaining agreement that would end the lockout by the conclusion of this week. The negotiating teams for the respective sides have a common destination. How they get to the end of the road, however, remains a tricky and potentially combustible conundrum." While I am sure that these issues can, and hopefully will be resolved, they also seem to have the potential to be major sticking points. Keeping fingers crossed!
