    NEW YORK (March 2, 2006) -- NFL owners voted unanimously Thursday to break off talks with the players' union on a contract extension, leaving the current salary cap in place with the start of free agency looming -- and possibly forcing the mass dumping of veterans.

    The owners, who met for 57 minutes Thursday morning, endorsed a recommendation by their management council executive committee to reject the union's latest proposal.

    NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue was expected to have a news conference later Thursday morning.

    Colin Cowherd played a clip of Tag's news conference this morning. It sounds like the owners are pretty strong in their resolve. Either that, or they are playing a really dangerous game of chicken with the NFLPA.

    It’s really easy. They are the owners and have money in the reserves; the players are the ones who end up losing the most. I think the NHL's lockout was a major message for all professional sports. I doubt you see any more work stoppages in the near future.
