Although the NFLPA 7-4 executive committee voted against the proposal and only 17-14 votes (one abstained) among the team members, the new CBA was sent to vote to all players in the league. It was tight with 51.5 percent of players who approved the deal (1,019 for, 959 against). The NFL and NFL Players Association did not need a lockout or strike to develop a new collective bargaining agreement. The current CBA provides that the share of players in the turnover during the 10 years of the agreement represents on average at least 47% of the league`s total revenues. Here, the NFLPA takes some of its most important criticisms of the 2011 deal, because the most important online success of the owners locking strategy has been to reduce the share of players from where it was in 2006 deal. In this agreement, players received 60% of the league`s revenue, but the NFLPA would indicate that this is not a comparison of apples, because under the previous agreement, players have a share of net revenue (i.e. after the owners have taken money from the head), while the current one gives players a share of the gross revenue and gives players more control over how the owners take the lead. when and for what purpose. Negotiations on a new CBA began in early 2010. Team owners and new NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell have called for a reduction in salaries and benefits under the Cape Town system and have promised to exclude players if no new deals are reached by March 1, 2011.  The NFLPA rejected Goodell`s proposal and requested to see all financial documents from the league and clubs to determine the need, if any, for clubs to reduce the cost of players. At their 2010 team meetings, players voted to terminate NFLPA union status on March 1, 2011, unless a new CBA was reached on that date.
 Although there was no salary cap in 2010, the free agency`s activities and total player spending decreased, leading the NFLPA to file a case of collusion, as the owners illegally agreed to reduce competition for free agents.  After the lack of progress in the negotiations, the two sides agreed in February 2011 to mediation under the auspices of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS). During mediation, the players and owners agreed to extend the CBA by one week in 2006. The FMCS did not arrive at a comparison and the previous CBA expired on March 7, 2011. On the same day, the NFLPA announced that it was no longer a union. This allowed players to submit individual cartel procedures, many of which questioned the legality of the impending lockout.  Tom Brady of the New England Patriots and Peyton Manning of the Indianapolis Colts were two of the eight plaintiffs named in the complaint filed with the Federal District Court of Minnesota.   After the first two games of the 1987 season, the players went on strike for the free agencies.  In response to the strike, the team owners took replacements and continued the regular season after a week.
