One thing we know for sure when it comes to negotiating a contract is the two sides need to be talking for a deal to get struck, and at the very least we can say that today on the CFL beat.
Commissioner Mark Cohon and his negotiating team as well as CFLPA president Scott Flory and his crew are holed up in a Toronto airport hotel and continue to try and make progress on a new CBA.
The current deal is set to run out on May 29th and unless major progress or a signed agreement can be filed, training camps could be interrupted.
Cohon and his team entered a conference room early this morning and held a short discussion with the players' association and then left to walk down the hall and confer in their own boardroom. Both sides have been seperate working on proposals for several hours now.
It is expected the two sides will get together at some point this evening and discuss what they've come up. A conciliation officer is also on the premises though to what extent he or she is involved is unclear.
