Tuesday was another day full of court-ordered mediation between the NFL and its locked-out players. And just like the previous days, it ended without any signs of a new agreement.
For NFL owners and the players they’ve locked out in this dispute over the division and future of the ever-popular $9 billion business, it’s time to talk again.
On Thursday the NFL players union requested that a federal judge award them with at least $707 million in damages stemming from a dispute with the league over $4 billion in broadcast revenue.
On Wednesday, the NFL asked a federal judge to keep the details of a $4 billion TV revenue dispute sealed, citing commercially sensitive information within the contracts.
The NFL gets to cash its $4 billion in TV checks. The union gets about $7 million in damages from the league.
