Not to sound dumb, but what does the last sentence mean?

NFL owners, players union call off meeting
NFL.com wire reports
NEW YORK (Sept. 1, 2005) -- An NFL owners meeting owners scheduled for Sept. 14 in Atlanta has been called off because the players union and league have not made sufficient progress on an extension on a new labor contract.
The negotiations have been an issue that has been lingering for more than a year, in part because the owners have disagreed among themselves over the contributions to the player pool between high- and low-revenue teams. Several owners have said that the teams are closer to a consensus among themselves on how that issue can be resolved.
However, Commissioner Paul Tagliabue said in a letter to owners that this delay was "because we have not made sufficient progress with the players on the CBA extension." For that reason, he said, the meeting has been pushed back to Oct. 6 in Detroit.
The labor agreement, first signed in 1993, has been extended several times. It is due to expire in 2008, but there is some urgency to the negotiations because without an agreement, 2007 would be an uncapped year.
