If you weren't around Niners Nation yesterday, it was a turbulent day as we had some ups and downs in the battle to get the CBA settlement figured out and the NFL lockout ended. The owners voted for a deal and that was followed by players going off on Twitter at what they viewed as a PR ploy. Some folks are unhappy, some are confused, and some have brought an excellent dose of humor to the table.
At this point we don't have a deal done and we'll be back at it keeping an eye on things. Given the amount of time I spent watching NFL Network's coverage yesterday, it could be a long few days while both sides try and get this deal figured out. We'll have labor content throughout the day, but don't worry, we'll have some non-labor stuff, including the continuation of the Badness tournament and even a little Caption This action. Amidst our NFL updates, check out the SB Nation NFL Lockout stream. On to the links...
