Mark Maske, of the Washington Post, reports a union official said just before 11:15 a.m. Sunday, March 5, that a new bargaining session was about to begin. Gene Upshaw, the executive director of the Players Association, and Richard Berthelsen, the union's general counsel, traveled back to New York from Washington this morning after leaving New York when talks broke down Saturday, March 4. Another participant in the talks said just before today's bargaining session began that any optimism should be tempered, however, because the sides had not yet resumed face-to-face negotiations and there still was plenty of work to be done. It seemed possible that the two sides could agree to a second postponement of the opening of the free-agent market, scheduled for midnight, if they made progress today but could not complete a deal. Even if the parties emerge from today's negotiations with a tentative agreement, the owners and players would have to ratify the deal.
