I would like to take a moment to plug our fantastic network. SB Nation bloggers had a chance to join NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and lead negotiator in labor talks Jeff Pash today on a conference call. I was unfortunately not available to join, but several of my colleagues were and did a fantastic job. The interview will be rolled out across the network for the next day or so.

We do not have a firm date. We have been focused on negotiations and trying to get resolution to this. Obviously the uncertainty of not having an agreement - we're in the midst of constructing our 2011 playing schedule. We have to try to obviously plan for flexibility on that. We are planning on a full season. We are preparing for a full season. And we certainly hope to be playing a full season.
