Two weeks ago, Judge Susan Nelson said that it would take her a few weeks to rule on the permanent injunction request filed by the players’ attorneys in the Brady v NFL case.

NFL Labor
Gary Myers of the New York Daily News is hearing Nelson will rule Monday.

Myers writes (and anybody who has followed this case would probably agree) that the players are heavy favorites to win a favorable ruling from Nelson, but this won’t mean much because the owners will immediately appeal the decision (and vice versa if the owners win the ruling).

The winner of the appeal, then, will have an untold amount of leverage, especially since the owners and the players won’t return to the negotiating table until May 16.

Face it, the NFLPA disbanded before the talks were over - that was their big mistake. That showed that they did not enter the CBA negotiations with the intent to bargain. Their demands are ludicrous, and they are only hurting themselves in this process

The players NFLPA had to disband before they could go to court.  The negotiations were over, except for the PC public announcements of extending talks, the owners were not giving in on their demand any further and the players were not going to give up what mone they had gotten without "open books".  According to you the players demands to see why the owners needed a billion more dollars up front to keep from going broke was "ludicrous".  They look justified to me, because in the end the owners were willing to take 1/3 of that.  In other words the owners were lying about "needing" the money.  The owners just "wanted" more money.  If you think the owners went in to negotiations without planning on locking playes out you are loking at facts from one side.  Let's see TV contracts negotioated that pay the owners even without a NFL season, Loading a "war chest" with billions to sustain the owners through a lockout, coming in asking for items that would never get passed without a fight.  AKA - 18 game season and just having the players willingly give up a billion dollars off the top.  Sorry neither side came into this with an honest attemp to negotiate, the ownes just gambled that they would be able to pressure the players to break before it went to court, they lost that gamble.

No an appeal will take at last 45 to 60 days to be heard, if upheld the NFL will take it to the supreme court unless they and they players can come to an agreement, You are not looking at football in september mayber November if your lucky.

God-Hell is making a $1 and is still over paid!!!<br /> <br /> Fire him!!!<br /> <br /> January 26, 2011 5:17 pm God-Hell is shutting his own coffin. I as a Steeler Fan love it! Changing the rules to suspend Big Ben did not endear him to us true Steeler fans. Now he will fumble these negotiations like a Browns running back. Please owners, dump him and his double standards before we lose a second of the 2011 season and he ruins fantasy football for the whole year <br /> <br />

You are right - this never should have gone to court - in fact the court should not have had any jurisdiction until the NFRB acted on the petition by the owners. Any ruling in favor of the players will be vacated on appeal until that court comes out with a ruling.

Yeeeehaaaa, the American Legal system at work! This should have never gone to the court system. Ego, pride and greed has put them at this point. This will only waste more time and money. They need to sit at Mediation or even enter binding mediation until a deal is done. End of story.
