The much-awaited ruling from Federal Judge Susan Nelson in the Brady v NFL case finally came in late Monday. As expected, Nelson ruled in favor of the players. Nelson is lifting the lockout.

The owners were seeking an immediate stay, but NFL Network's Albert Breer reports that Nelson declined. Thus, the owners will seek a stay from the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals, which is based in St. Louis. If they don't get the appeal granted, free agency could begin soon.

Wow what a screwed up situation.  Basically owners have no say in how to run their business.
