    The NFL players belong to a union. As such the union collectively bargains for rights that all members of the union will be entitled to. This can include such things as pay scales and health benefits. The owners are on the other side. Typically the owners want to pay the least they can while the players want to get the most they can. They bargain out an agreement that both sides agree to and sign. It lasts for a designated period, usually three to five years. Then it expires and they do it again. The last one expires this off season so they need a new one…

    The owners want longer seasons, more games, more money and ticket sales. The players don’t want more games. If they do play more games, they want a big pay increase. And they are having trouble coming to terms on the deal.

    I have a feeling they’re going to turn 2 of the preseason games into regular season.
