Kevin Mawae, Drew Brees In NFL Mediation As Lockout Looms
Written by 

Wednesday's mediated session between the NFL and the NFLPA has brought out the big guns, at least on the players' side.

For the first time in the negations, NFLPA Kevin Mawae and New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees will be attendance.



Eleven members of the NFLPA executive committee and both retired members have now attended negotiations over the last two weeks. There has been only one owner at the session until Wednesday. 

The NFL owners are in town because their labor committee broke bread on Tuesday night. The owners continued to meet in the evening after the owners' meeting. If there are no sessions on Wednesday night, it's time to make you lockout plans for 11:01 on March 4.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
