Mike Freeman twitter: Doesn't like what he heard on CBA Negotations
After discussing the issue with both sides, CBSSports.com's Mike Freeman is now "extremely pessimistic" that mediation will put an end to the lockout.
NFL Network's Albert Breer reported that progress in Friday's talks was leading to growing optimism. Freeman, though, spent the weekend asking around on both the owners' and the players' sides and didn't like what he heard. Unless it's a result of both sides going back to their respective trenches for the weekend, the difference in outlook could just be in Freeman's sources versus Breer's.
Based on discussions with both sides, I'm now extremely pessimistic mediation will lead to a deal.
