Well, we have a twist to the news that the NFL and NFLPA will be meeting for four days in Minnesota this week.

No owners or players are expected at this round of talks, according to Albert Breer of NFL Network. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, NFLPA chief DeMaurice Smith, and their respective staffs will be there. So will attorneys for both sides. Breer describes it as part of the process.

The obvious question: Why wouldnt the usual suspects be there?

Im not the legal expert around here and can only speculate. But the location of the talks and those present could possibly indicate the two sides are working on settling the antitrust case between the league and the players.
