Pull up a chair — preferably a recliner. This is going to take a while, this latest scrimmage between NFL owners and the players who enrich them. In fact, prepare for two years of posturing before labor and management get serious about revising their current agreement. Should make for riveting programming for Rich Eisen and the boys at the NFL Network.

ATLANTA — The NFL owners voted unanimously today to end their agreement with the players' union in 2011, two years before the deal was to expire.
After months of public criticism of their lack of support for retired players, the NFL and the NFL Players Association formed an alliance yesterday with the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the NFL Alumni to help those with medical and financial woes.
