Space to discuss current status of the CBA as it inches toward completion. A real shame that the players were not able to vote on it yesterday, after months to prepare. Let's hope they do today. One more signal that they are in no hurry to get back on the field. Each day it's open creates an opportunity for one more request, one more complication. As Kevin Mawae clearly stated: "Our timeline is that which gives us the best deal for the players." Which should be his position, of course. Today could still be the day both sides start to approve the process. Presumably, if the player review drags long enough to miss a preseason week, league revenues will be lower and the cap will have to be adjusted.
