Report: Judge Nelson lifts lockout

NFL Lockout Football AP

As expected, a ruling on the players’ motion to lift the lockout came Monday.

As expected, the ruling favors the players.

Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that Judge Nelson has issued a ruling in favor of the players. The NFL reportedly will seek an immediate stay of the implementation of the decision.

If the stay is granted, the lockout would not be lifted until, at the earliest, after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit issues a ruling in the case. The players surely would request expedited consideration of the appeal.

If Judge Nelson refuses to grant the stay, the NFL surely would seek a stay from the appeals court.

If neither court gives the league the stay, the doors will be forced open, soon.

In the short term, it’s good news for the fans. If the ruling stands, the season will occur as scheduled. And maybe folks will even give a crap about the draft.

Meanwhile, if the ruling stands the NFL will at some point have to come up with rules for 2011 regarding free agency and the salary cap, if any. Those rules likely would then be challenged by the players as antitrust violations.

All that said, there could be important exceptions and details and nuances in Judge Nelson’s written ruling. We’re in the process of getting our hands on it. We’ll then break it all down in order to best understand why the decision was reached, whether it will be susceptible to appeal, and what it all means to you (and us), the fans of football.

The NFL's request for a stay of the injunction is to be made to Judge Nelson's court later tonight.

Just me, Laz, but I think a court knows more than you, unless you are part of the legal system and are a lawyer.



Hell, the NFL is more expenisve than MLB is right now.

I can still get cheap seats at Cards games when the cheapest at Rams games might be the same price as a decent at a Cards game.

Worst fucking point I've seen someone on CP make....ever. I mean who would think a sport with 81 fucking home games would be cheaper to go to than one with 8 home games. Supply and demand?

Plus, the point he was trying to make is that the NFL is still the tops in terms of competitive balance.

Not denying I'm an idiot.

I didn't take into the fact that there were 81 games in a baseball home schedule compared to 8 in the NFL. All I was thinking at the time was the maximum capacity of a stadium.
