Talks the Last 3 Days, essentially extending previous negotiations

The quiet negotiations that have been happening this week are technically supposed to be "settlement talks" over the players' lawsuits, but basically every source out there seems to think they're more negotiating. In fact the tweet by Howard Beck here specifically says both sides agreed nothing in these talks can be used in the lawsuits out there: "All parties agreed IN ADVANCE that nothing in these talks would impact the litigation or be used to prove either side's case in court." It's about as we'd expect: The legal maneuvering is mostly leverage, used to try to pry something loose at the table. It can get to decertification or its equivalent, and that's where it's headed, but we still have a shot at a season here.
