NFL & NFLPA Seem Far Apart; Heated Twitter Exchange

With the CBA set to expire today, the NFL and NFLPA seem far apart. The big issue is how to split the revenue. The NFLPA says it wants the NFL to open its books.

As per NFLPA attorney Timothy Thornton, "The players should no longer be forced to have the fate of their careers decided in the dark".

NFLPA head DeMaurice Smith last night said that the "financial details the NFL has offered" to the union "are insufficient," and the "information that was offered wasn't what we asked for."

If the sides don't agree to extend the CBA today, then we could well see the Union decertify.
