And here we are, discuss

From Foxsports.com
League owners voted Thursday to approve a new 10-year collective bargaining agreement with its players. The vote was 31-0. The Raiders abstained.

Which is why I changed the title as they could still reject the new CBA

An agreement was never approved. The owners just decided to make a formal proposal to the players. Apprently, it sucked.

Why did the Raiders abstained? does Al Davis just like to be different, or is he just not really sure whats going on?

Either his rotary phone wasn't webinar capable or it was jello time. Hard to say. Maybe when you're between 30 and 60 you're a maverick. But Davis is just another eccentric, foolish idiot at this point.

It really sucks to be an undrafted free agent this year.

Most of those guys are going to be invisible due to lack of opportunities....Most will have to hope for a few cycles on practice squads and wait until the 2012 off-season to impress.

Especially if week one of preseason gets cancelled.

Looks like we will get a full preseason, but I agree , a lot of undrafted "diamonds in the ruff" may end up in Canada/in a Arena due to the chaos.

Never the less with the time crunch the next two weeks could be the most exciting in the NFL off-season history.

Without a doubt and I can't wait. The next two weeks will be a junkies dream and I am ready to OD
