The NBA and NFL are now officially the NFL and the NBA is now officially NFL.
It’s not clear if the NHL and NHLPA are still working on the new collective bargaining agreement, but it’s been a long time since the NBA has been represented by the NFLPA.
The NBAPA had been representing the league for about a decade.
The NFL has been the NBA since 1998, the NHL for about 14 years, and the NFL has had the NHLPA for nearly 20 years.
The two leagues have been linked in the past and they’re not strangers anymore, but they’ve never been able to reach a deal.
In a letter to the NFL’s owners, the union called for a resolution to the lockout in 2018 and said it would hold talks with the league “as soon as possible.”
The NBAPA is now trying to resolve its relationship with the NFL.
The NFL and NBAPA were set to negotiate a new collective bargaining agreement on Feb. 6, 2018, but the sides have been unable to reach an agreement.
“As the negotiations progress, the league and the union continue to engage in dialogue, and we remain optimistic that a resolution will be reached,” NBAPA Executive Director Michael Smith said in a statement.
If the two sides do not reach an accord, they could face a lockout in 2019, but those talks would be limited to talks about the length of the contract.
ESPN’s Jeff Goodman said in an email that a lack of progress in talks is “a cause for concern.”
The union wants a new deal before the end of the season, but if negotiations don’t go well, the sides could begin negotiations during the summer.
The union also wants the NHL to negotiate from a position of strength and is willing to make concessions in order to make that happen.
It’s not a complete surprise that the two leagues are trying to work out a new agreement, as the NBA was in talks with other NFL owners to bring back a league championship in 2017.
That season, the players and fans were outraged over the lockout and the league decided to let players and owners go free, with the idea that the players would have more leverage in negotiating the new contract.
