Players, Owners Unlikely to Meet Before September

by August 20, 2011

The Players Union wants to meet next week, but don’t expect either side to budge until real money is on the line. CBSSports‘ Ken Berger reports: “Despite the desire of union officials to arrange a bargaining session next week in New York, a person connected to the process told on Friday that such a meeting is unlikely. That means the calendar will most likely flip to September before the two sides reconvene for only the second time since the lockout was imposed on July 1.”
