NEW YORK - Long before NHL commissioner Gary Bettman enacted this flawed lockout 111 days ago, the league entered bargaining in July with a laundry list of demands. Among the original absolutes were a reduction in the players' revenue share, and thus a reduction in the salary cap, along with unrealistic ideals of limiting free agency and arbitration rights. Remember when deputy commissioner Bill Daly said on Dec. 6 that limiting contracts to a maximum of 5 years was a "hill we're prepared to die on"?

Even though Michael Vick will start Sunday against the Giants in the Eagle's season finale, many have closed the book on his tenure with the team. But the Eagles could decide to bring him back for 2013. Vick is under contract through 2015. But he is due $15.5 million in base salary next season and the Eagles are unlikely to retain him at that figure if he is to compete with Nick Foles for the starting quarterback job or be the emergency backup. Would Vick be willing to renegotiate his contract?

The NHL has made some concessions - most notably in the length of contracts and including amnesty buyouts - in an effort to salvage part of the season. Representatives from the league and the players' union are expected to have a conference call Saturday to discuss the developments and may meet Sunday in New York. Friday was the 104th day of the lockout, and games have been canceled through Jan. 14. According to multiple reports Friday, the league has offered teams one compliance (also known as "amnesty")

When Howie Roseman took over the business side of the Eagles' football operations this past offseason, he became one of 10 NFL general managers to handle both player evaluations and contract negotiations. The number is down to nine after Panthers GM Marty Hurney was fired in October. The remaining eight reflect a wide array of decision-makers. There are former players such as John Elway (Broncos) and Reggie McKenzie (Raiders). There are longtime scouts who worked their way up the chain of command such as Rod Graves (Cardinals)

NEW YORK - Walking away from the NHL's latest round of bargaining sessions on Wednesday, it would be easy to remain pessimistic about this 69-day labor standoff between the league and its players association by simply listening to the leaders. "We're still far apart," commissioner Gary Bettman said. "The players did an awful lot here," NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr said. Believe it or not, I'm actually more optimistic about some sort of season being played, after letting this week's meetings marinate a bit. They are not close to a deal by any means, but there are positives.

There were early indications of positive developments as the NHL and NHL Players' Association met Wednesday morning in New York. But when an afternoon session ended, it was clear the sides weren't close to a labor agreement. The NHL rejected the union proposal, and no new talks were scheduled. "I'm disappointed," Donald Fehr, executive director of the NHLPA, said of the league's reaction. He added that the NHL had offered no reciprocity on major issues. Gary Bettman, the NHL commissioner, told reporters that he was happy the NHLPA made a proposal but that the sides were "far apart.

Andy Reid announced Monday that he doesn't intend to resign his position as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, which doesn't really qualify as news, but the question had to be asked. If there was news, that was it: The question had to be asked. In a forum usually devoted to the moving chessboard of players and the shifting calculus of offensive and defensive schemes, it had become necessary to make sure the coach wasn't going to pitch it all and go tarpon fishing or something.

Seven games remain and the playoffs are still a mathematical possibility, but Eagles general manager Howie Roseman is making a list, and it's full of well-paid veterans who could be out of jobs come the offseason. The Eagles are projected to be about $18 million over the salary cap for 2013. Even if they carry over some of the $22 million they're under the cap this season, they will be looking to dump salaries and renegotiate contracts (offer pay cuts). The majority of the team's starters are under contract for next season, with cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie the one notable exception.

The people who play simulated hockey games don't know a lockout from a cookout. So the NHL's work stoppage hasn't had any effect on the Strat-O-Matic or the EA Sports hockey universe. In real life, Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov is struggling in Russia and ripping reporters for the "filth" he says they are writing about him. In Strat-O-Matic's simulated games, Bryzgalov is doing well, and there are no reports about any postgame tirades. He has all of the Flyers' wins, helping them start the season 7-3-1, including a 6-1 mark at the Wells Fargo Center.
