After four long and intense mediation sessions between the NFL and its locked-out players, the judge decided to give both parties an extended break. By the time they reconvene in mid-May, the landscape of their discussions could be completely different. Executive vice president Jeff Pash, the NFL's lead negotiator, said Wednesday that U.S. Judge Magistrate Arthur Boylan told both sides they likely would not convene again until May 16 because he has a few other matters on his judicial calendar.

The NFL is gaining confidence that it has the upper hand in negotiations with its locked-out officials after preseason games Thursday and yesterday went off without major officiating gaffes. The league has doubled its guarantee to each of the replacement officials from two games to four at $2,000 a game - if the dispute is settled or not. And a top NFL official, speaking on condition of anonymity told the Associated Press that, after talks broke off last week, the league committed itself to going deep into the season with replacements if the union doesn't substantially reduce its contract demands - about 50 to 75 percent higher than the NFL's current offer.

Maurice Clarett filed an emergency appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court yesterday to try to force his way into this weekend's NFL draft. Clarett's attorney, Alan Milstein, asked for a stay of a decision by the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals preventing the former Ohio State tailback from entering the draft. "We're hoping justice will prevail and Mr. Clarett will play football - which is what he was born to do and which is what he is ready to do," Milstein said in a telephone interview with the Associated Press.

One day of owners' meetings could turn into two. Whether that's a sign of progress toward the end of the lockout and labor peace is debatable. NFL owners will gather in Chicago today and perhaps into tomorrow, to discuss the status of negotiations with the players for a new collective bargaining agreement. This is the first meeting called by the league strictly for labor matters, and the 32 team owners and representatives who will be on hand were advised last week to prepare to stay an extra day. That's how complex - and perhaps contentious - some of the issues are. In the last 3 weeks, groups led by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith have made enough progress toward a CBA that it sparked optimism training camps could open on time late next month.

The NFL and its locked-out players wrapped up another round of court-ordered mediation yesterday without any signs of a new agreement and the clock ticking on the 2011 season. Officials and attorneys for both sides said they will return for more closed-door talks with U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan on June 7, 4 days after a key appeals court hearing in St. Louis on the legality of the lockout. NFL lead negotiator Jeff Pash and former Vikings standout Carl Eller both said the talks went well, but there was no indication of any progress toward a new collective bargaining agreement.

The NFL and its locked-out officials got nowhere in negotiations yesterday, despite facing a midweek deadline to reach a deal or go into the regular season with the replacements who worked last week's exhibition games. After saying last weekend that there was a good chance of a deal, hopes seemed to be fading. Both sides will meet again today. Tom Condon, the chief negotiator for the NFL Referees Association, wouldn't even describe yesterday's talks as "negotiations" between two sides that are from 50 to 75 percent apart in their salary proposals.

NFL referees yesterday began voting by e-mail on a plan that could end a lockout and have them back on the field when play resumes Sunday, according to the Associated Press. Citing league sources, the AP said the 10-member executive board of the NFL Referees Association had agreed on the vote during a conference call yesterday morning. The league set a deadline of noon EDT today for the result. Tom Condon, the lead negotiator for the officials, said he believed a deal was close.

Not all of the NHL players making their way to training camps are dipping into their own pockets to meet expenses. Last month, commissioner Gary Bettman issued a 19-point rollback of players' benefits that, among other things, dictated that teams would no longer pay travel costs to camp or a per diem once they arrived. But labor laws in Ontario and Alberta stipulate that an expired collective bargaining agreement remains in force until a strike or lockout occurs. That means teams in Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary and Edmonton are obliged to pay a player's way to camp and provide a per diem once camps open.

The NFL and its locked-out players wrapped up their fourth day of court-ordered talks yesterday with few signs of progress and no plans to meet again until mid-May. Executive vice president Jeff Pash, the NFL's lead negotiator, said U.S. Judge Magistrate Arthur Boylan told both sides they probably won't convene again until May 16. U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson is expected to decide well before then on the players' request for an injunction to immediately lift the lockout, now in its 40th day. Her decision almost certainly will be appealed, but it will give the winning side some leverage in any further talks - even as the clock ticks on the 2011 season.

WASHINGTON - They aren't there yet. NFL players and owners still didn't have the final details of a new labor deal worked out early Wednesday night. Instead, the day passed without a player vote on terms that would settle the NFL's labor dispute. Owners are set to begin meetings Thursday in Atlanta and still could cast votes on a potential deal, NFL general counsel Jeff Pash told reporters there. He also expressed hope that the players could vote Thursday. "I think both sides are at the point where they can close, they should close, and we should be in a position to take votes," Pash said.

The NFL and its players remained in a state of confusing limbo Tuesday, despite a judge's order Monday night to lift the league's lockout. Although Wednesday might bring more clarity, trades, free agency, and other NFL business remained on hold Tuesday as legal wrangling continued. The owners requested a stay of the lockout injunction issued by U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson. A decision on that request could come Wednesday - and could open the door for player movement, such as a Kevin Kolb trade, or lead to more legal maneuvers.

The NFL owners' last labor proposal would have resulted in "the worst economic deal for players" in major professional sports, 11 players wrote Saturday in a lengthy response to the league's recent public-relations push. Their letter said the league's offer would lead to a "massive decrease" in the percentage of revenue dedicated to players, even as NFL income is expected to soar. "Your statements are false," the players wrote to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who earlier in the week said the owners had offered a "strong and fair" contract.

A day that featured little negotiating between the NFL and its players erupted into an evening of heated rhetoric Thursday, all but erasing hopes for a deal before Friday night's deadline for a new collective bargaining agreement. The league and players again appeared headed toward a lockout by the owners and decertification by the union, potentially endangering the NFL's offseason and 2011 season unless another deadline extension can be agreed to Friday. But the words last night were not of two sides close to coming together.

WASHINGTON - The NFL and the players union agreed yesterday afternoon to postpone by 24 hours a showdown that both sides have been girding for since 2008, when the owners opted to reopen the 2006 labor agreement. What can be accomplished today that wasn't accomplished in the preceding weeks and months, and most especially in the 10 days of talks that have taken place under the direction of George Cohen at the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Center? Not a whole lot, probably, but the sense last night was that the sides need some more time to clear up logistics involved in providing a longer extension - say, 3 days, or even 7 days - a reprieve that might be long enough to make real progress on the central issue of how to split $9 billion a year in revenue from an incredibly prosperous sport.

For unintentional comedy, it has been difficult to top the National Football League as it lurches clumsily and idiotically toward a labor war. Two weeks ago, in Dallas, commissioner Roger Goodell and his lead negotiator, Jeff Pash, harrumphed about the union's use of the courts in the run-up to the March 4 lockout deadline. Just over a week later, the league filed a complaint against the union with the National Labor Relations Board. Hilarious. One minute, you get an e-mail from the league's PR officials trumpeting the enormous success of the league: Highest-rated this!
