The networks are set to to televise 11 preseason games according to the NFL’s just-released preseason schedule, which supposedly kicks off Aug. 7 when NBC airs the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio, that pits Chicago against St. Louis. (ESPN will show four games, Fox three and NBC and CBS two apiece during the stretch.) The league is taking the “what-me-worry?” tack of releasing a schedule despite NFL owners locking out its players March 11, a subsequent injunction hearing to stop that action and suits and countersuits galore. The injunction request is in flux as the Minnesota judge in the case ordered a federal mediator to police renewed labor talks. The mediator, U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan, met with the players’ reps today and will meet with the league Wednesday before bringing both sides to the the table Thursday to resume negotiations.
