Lexington TV station WKYT is reporting that Bengals brass and school officials are going to hold off on the decision of whether to cancel training camp at Georgetown College in Georgetown, KY until the league owners meet next Thursday, July 21, in Atlanta.  The previous deadline was July 15th.  With recent optimism surrounding the lockout, school and team officials are hopeful a settlement can be reached in time to save the camp.  At issue is the beginning of the school year at Georgetown College, as players stay in student dorms while in Georgetown and the school must have time to prepare for the arrival of students in August.  Should the college be unavailable as a host for training camp, it would likely move to the team facilities at Paul Brown Stadium.  This could be bad news for Georgetown College, as they are working off of a one year extension of the last agreement with the Bengals.  Should the team decide to stay home for camp, they may never come back.

    While it is not great the lockout is not over, this is cool that it seems like there is optimism it will be over soon.
