Today, a new NFL collective bargaining agreement was finalized and quickly ratified by player vote, officially ending the NFL lockout. It's a banner day for fans, but a sad day for NFLLabor.com, the official state mouthpiece of the league.
For the past year and a half, NFLLabor.com was the place to go for all your one-sided lockout news and poorly sourced invective towards players. Who could forget classics like "Roger Goodell wants to find a solution" and "NFLPA offer isn't what it seems?" And of course, "NFL donates $1 million to American Cancer Society."
But with labor peace, NFLLabor.com no longer has a role. So today, a goodbye post announced the site will be shut down indefinitely. Of course, they couldn't go without a threat: in 2021, when the new CBA is set to expire, they'll be back.
