Everything you wanted to know about the CBA but were afraid to ask

Here are your updates from the past week on the ongoing collective bargaining agreement talks from around the Web.

Lockout. It’s a dirty word to me, like “strike”, “New York Rangers”, and “country music”. We,the fans, always lose during any labor disagreement between the owners and the players. We can only hope that both sides suck it up, meet in the middle and get a deal done. As of this writing, there are no plans on the two sides meeting, but hopefully this weekend someone will reach out and the negotiations will resume.

That’s all for now, I will try to update this column as time permits during the lockout if anything breaks.
