New York, NY – The NFL owners and the players' union continue to be at odds in negotiating a new collective bargaining agreement, and the former filed an unfair labour practice charge against the latter on Monday.

According to a report on NFL.com, the owners claim the union has failed to bargain in good faith, instead biding time before the current CBA expires on March 3, when the NLFPA is expected to retaliate with an antitrust litigation against the league if a new deal is not reached.

Last Thursday, a five-hour meeting between the two parties was called off with neither side giving a reason for the cancellation.

At issue between the two sides is how to spilt the roughly $9 billion in annual revenues, extending the season to 18 games and the rookie wage scale.
