NFLPA Chief: Open the books
|03.11.11 at 5:06 pm ET|
With the players and owners facing a Friday deadline to come up with a new Collective Bargaining Agreement, NFLPA chief DeMaurice Smith met with the media in Washington, D.C. on Friday afternoon and issued the following statement:
‘We met with the owners until about 4 o’clock today. We discussed a proposal that they had presented. At this time, significant differences continue to remain. We informed the owners that significant difference remained, that if there was going to be a request for an extension, that was asked for 10 years of audited financial records to accompany any extension. We told them to please let us know by 5 p.m. today. We’re going to head back to the office, and I’m sure we’ll have a further comment later on.’
