The next 48 hours may be significant to determining if the Canadian Football Leagues 2014 training camp, and possibly regular season, starts on schedule, as executives and legal counsel for the league and the Canadian Football League Players Union are set to meet in Toronto Thursday and Friday for critical talks to finally find common ground on a new collective bargaining agreement. With the two sides making little progress over the last six months, however, it appears the players union is prepared for another deadlock. "The (PAs strike) ballots are ready to be mailed out," said a source with knowledge of the negotiations, but who spoke on conditions of anonymity. Sources have told TSN that the CFLPA has steadily prepared for the possibility of a strike vote for weeks, by accumulating addresses of its members, and reviewing labour laws in provinces with CFL teams. "This is not a negotiation tactic - this is something the players feel they need to explore if no progress is made Thursday and Friday," the source said. The CFLs current CBA ends May 29. Talks between the league and players are poised on a tipping point because neither side can agree on functional revenue-sharing model. When the two sides met previously in Toronto weeks ago, talks eventually began leaning towards general discussion of revenue-sharing possibilities. League representatives said they would review the developments, only to return later insisting that discussions on any revenue-sharing model could go no further. The CFL apparently has a counter-proposal prepared for the players - different from the reported $100,000 yearly salary cap increase over the life of a new eight-year CBA - but will not reveal the new bottom line unless the players abandon any revenue-sharing model. Apart the disagreement on the feasibility of any revenue-sharing models, previous talks have stalled over the issue of financial transparency: The players have requested the CFL reveal all its numbers, but the league has remained reluctant. "If the owners are anticipating more money and more deals over the course of a new CBA then the players would like to know what exactly (the owners) are anticipating," the source explained. If talks hit an impasse again by the weekend, the union will prepare its members for a strike vote. Some provinces in Canada, Quebec in particular, require strike votes take place after a CBA expires. Nevertheless, the union will encourage its members, regardless of particular labour laws, to stay off the field." "Its going to be tough to prepare for a season, unless one team is prepared to play against itself," the source added. Brian Burns Womens Jersey . "Im excited just for a new start, just to see where things are going, to bring some kind of tradition back to the team and guys being excited about something new," the defensive back said during a conference call Monday after agreeing to stay with the Bombers rather than go to free agency next month. Cam Newton Panthers Jersey . They named Mark Washington as their defensive co-ordinator on Thursday and appear to be closing in on an offensive co-ordinator. http://www.thepanthersofficialstore.com/au...anthers-jersey/ . The 25-year-old native of Milford, Conn., has 18 points in 41 games this season. The five-foot-eight 166-pound centre also has 28 points (10-18) in 15 games with AHL Oklahoma City. Donte Jackson Womens Jersey . 5 Trade Deadline is drawing closer and teams will be deciding on whether to buy or sell while figuring out which players can make the biggest difference and hold the greatest value. Greg Little Youth Jersey . -- John Senden never imagined it would take more than seven years to win again. OAKLAND, Calif. -- Maybe it was Andre Iguodalas presence in the starting lineup. Maybe it was coach Mark Jackson publicly challenging his players. Or maybe it was simply facing an undermanned opponent at home. Whatever the reason, the Golden State Warriors finally started to look like the team that started off so strong this season. Stephen Curry had 28 points and 12 assists, David Lee added 21 points and 17 rebounds and the Warriors beat the short-handed New Orleans Pelicans 104-93 on Tuesday night in Iguodalas long-awaited return. "Hes a guy that makes life so much easier for everybody on the floor," Jackson said. "His ability to make plays, his ability to read and react, we missed him. Glad to have him back. And then there was a carryover effect." Iguodala finished with two points and two assists in 17 minutes after missing the previous 12 games with a left hamstring injury. The Warriors led by 10 points in the first quarter, 18 at halftime and 26 late in the third quarter. Golden State, which is 9-2 with its regular starters in the lineup, never trailed. "I felt good. I got tired of watching," said Iguodala, who was 1-for-4 shooting. "You get a new appreciation for the game, especially seeing your brothers struggle. I thought it was a great game by everyone." The Warriors outshot the Pelicans 45.1 to 37.5 per cent and outrebounded them 58 to 44 to control the game -- for the most part -- from start to finish. New Orleans made a brief run in the fourth quarter against Golden States backups before the starters returned and restored order. The Pelicans played without injured starters Anthony Davis (broken left hand) and Tyreke Evans (sprained left ankle). Ryan Anderson had 21 points and six rebounds and Jason Smith scored 12 for New Orleans, which has lost its first two games of a five-game trip. "Just a bad game from the start," Pelicans coach Monty Williams said. The Warriors went 5-7 after Iguodala injured his hamstring Nov. 22, losing three of their last four games. They had especially struggled on defence, though the problems extended beyond Iguodalas absence. Jackson even called out his players for a lack of effort after a loss at Phoenix on Sunday, saying "I am finding that the guys in the suit and tie want it more than the guys in uniform.ddddddddddddquot; After a string of slow starts during its recent slide, Golden State opened the game against New Orleans with the kind of heart and hustle Jackson has wanted from his team. The Warriors dominated at both ends of the floor in a near-flawless first quarter. About the only blemish in the period came when Harrison Barnes suffered a left eye lid abrasion and was poked in the eye inadvertently by Lou Amundson going for a rebound. He returned a few minutes later. The Pelicans played mostly on the perimeter and got nothing going offensively. The misses gave the Warriors several fast-break opportunities, and they took advantage of them throughout. Iguodala punctuated the fast start when he finished an alley-oop from Curry late in the second quarter for his only basket, sending most of the announced sellout crowd of 19,596 roaring to its feet. Two possessions later, Curry followed with a layup through traffic to give Golden State a 57-39 lead at the half. "Just a tough game. Another one of those that they just had a little bit more energy than us," Anderson said. The Warriors went ahead by 26 points late in the third quarter, and Iguodala nearly pulled off one of the highlights of the season during the run: He dribbled to his right, faked a behind-the-back pass, bounced the ball through the legs, then cuffed it with his right hand and tried to dunk over Smith -- but missed off the back iron. Klay Thompson scored 16 points and Andrew Bogut added eight points and 10 rebounds for the Warriors. The only rally New Orleans put together came against the bottom of the Warriors bench. The Pelicans sliced Golden States lead to 93-80 with 6:02 remaining before Jackson put all of his starters except Iguodala back in to regain control. "This team was challenged by our coach," Lee said, "and we knew this we as a game we needed to have." NOTES: Golden State has won six straight against New Orleans. ... Curry has scored 20 points or more in a career-best 11 straight games. ... New Orleans is 3-4 since Davis broke his hand Dec. 1. ' ' '
