Clock is ticking on NFL and NFLPA and Signs are Ominious

Things don't look good for the NFL and NFLPA with 28 hours to go till their deadline. They didn't even talk today, due to apparent misunderstandings about whether they were supposed to meet with federal mediator George Cohen. You would think they would approach these negotiations with a greater sense of urgency and would have found a way and time to bargain at some point today, but instead they apparently lost the day. Perhaps the gap between them is too far to bridge and they are resigned to the legal consequences that will follow.
