It came down to the very end, but a deal has been made.

NFL owners approve six-year CBA extension (sports.espn.go.com)

Only two owners voted against the deal (Ralph Wilson and Mike Brown) so they must have worked out a way to calm the worries of most of the small-market owners. Either that, or Tagliabue's speech today was the greatest in the history of American sports.

It's good to see that the WWE isn't backing away from Batista or Cena. There's still some questions lingering over a few of the draft moves they either made or didn't make (Jericho being a prime example), but the stage is set for a solid run to Summerslam that may send the indicator down. The longer Triple H stays away is also a plus...

Thank God for that. The last thing the NFL needed was labor strife. Now we have nothing to worry about until MLB's deal expires in December.

Funny how the 2 no votes were by owners who either named the stadium after themself or a relative. If you are complaining about not making enough money, sell the naming rights to the stadium like everyone else has done.
When Al Davis goes along with everyone else, it must be a good deal.

Tagliabue just morphed into a cross between Knute Rockne, Norman Dale, and Al Pacino's character in "Any Given Sunday" by being able to pull the owners to this point. And thank goodness for it, because the mere thought of Sundays without the NFL is enough to make me feel nervous and sweaty.

I don't think it would've come down to players being locked out (or striking) if a deal wasn't reached.

The consensus is that the owners would've locked out the palyers in 2008 to try to get the cap back after the uncapped year that would've been 2007.

This is just another example of why baseball and hockey should just copy the NFL model. If either one of those leagues (NBA, too) has a lockout or strike before the next NFL one, they all deserve whatever happens.

I read somewhere on ESPN that Upshaw had already begun taking steps to prepare the Union for decertification to prevent such a lockout should it have come to that.

Call me crazy, but I could have sworn that they decertified years ago so that they could use anti-trust legislation to sue (successfully) for true free agency.
