We’ll see if anything changes, it always could, but De Smith told players during his conference call the plan is to decertify.
This does not look good at all. Smith gave this update to the players at 2PM EST. The union must decertify by 5PM tonight…just a little over two hours from now. There are various reports that the league is hoping talks can continue after Smith’s announcement. Stay tuned.
