Cowboys owner Jerry Jones still believes that no football will be missed in 2011.
The owners and NFLPA will take their squabble to court on April 6.
Negotiation, meet litigation. Court battle could jeopardize 2011 season.
The owners will present players a "final proposal" Friday.
The NFL and NFLPA are more are less right where they were a week ago, staring the deadline for a new CBA in the face.
Jerry Jones was among a handful of owners who returned to labor discussions with the NFLPA on Thursday.
In order to avoid a lockout, the NFL's owners may be forced to "open the books" on their finances.
In anticipation of a lockout, the NFLPA recently issued a handbook to all players, advising them on how to financially prepare for a lockout.
Negotiating window for new CBA extended to Friday, March 11.
The exchange between the NFLPA and the owners has been marked by harsh words of late, but Jerry Jones contends that it's nothing new, and nothing to be worried about.
