CINCINNATI (AP)– Commissioner Roger Goodell continues to stress that “not enough negotiation is going on” between the owners and players.
Goodell took questions during a conference call with Cincinnati Bengals season tickets holders that went more than a half-hour Wednesday. He has done similar sessions with season ticket holders of other NFL teams.
The league has locked out the players in their dispute over a collective bargaining agreement. A federal appeals court has scheduled a June 3 hearing on whether the lockout should be allowed to continue. Currently, a stay is in place of an injunction that would lift the lockout and was granted by a U.S. District Court judge in Minnesota.
