The 8th Circuit Court of Appeals has granted the NFL's request for an expedited appeal, and will hear arguments from the two sides on Friday, June 3, 2011 at 10 a.m. CDT. No, this does not mean the lockout is lifted or -- ahem -- locked in.

It simply means that the Court of Appeals is willing to handle this appeal in a "typically" (as Clerk of Court Gans has previously told us) speedy fashion. The ruling on the temporary stay will likely come before this Friday, when the Court of Appeals will decide whether or not players will remain locked out between then and the date of the ruling on the June 3 hearing.

The league wants the court of appeals to overturn Judge Susan Richard Nelson's ruling in Minnesota District Court. The players, obviously, want the opposite.

There are some other scheduling notes along with the Judge's Order for the expedited appeal: Friday May 9 is the deadline for the NFL's Opening Brief to be filed; Friday, May 20 is the deadline for the players' Response Brief; and Thursday, May 26 is the deadline for the NFL's Reply Brief.

The Judges hearing the case -- Bye, Colloton, and Benton -- will then hear 30 minutes of oral arguments from each side on June 3 and rule some time (shortly, one would presume, though the complexity of the case could delay that as much as several months) thereafter.

Absolutely worth noting is that Judge Bye was the dissenting judge in the ruling that put the lockout back in place. The Court of Appeals will rule soon on the issue of a permanent stay.

8th Circuit grants NFL expedited appeal

Again people...look at the absurd posts Grundy makes: 

Grundy -
   you were wrong about the 2009 draft

BRHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAAHAHHH!   BRHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA!   He says I was wrong about the draft because I said Hodge would be a player.  He was injured and got an injury settlement 2 years later.  The team waited on him that long....he can play pro anymore.

This is the "FEEBLE" nature of Grundy's  "IM RIGHT" Posts.  lol.  

Grundy -
   you been wrong about almost every player you have try to analyze.

This is subjective  SOLOMONGRUNDY Bizzaro world thinking.  Need I say more?  

Grundy -
    ...your absolutely completely wrong about how this is going...your opinions and speculations hjave been absolutely wrong about this CBA conflict...

For the better part of 50+ Posts, and after I've posted  LINE BY LINE    IN HIS WORDS  all that he has been IRREFUTABLY WRONG ABOUT...he posts this!  lol    I've DEFIED!  DEFIED!  Him to post with the "TIME STAMP and DATE"  any iota of WRONG I've been on ANY ANY ANY of this.

HE CAN'T DO IT!   HE CANT!!!! Brhahahahahhahahah   
;  I've even REPOSTED my entire position from DAY 1   verse and chapter, and the REASON he can't is that its CLEAR I've been SPOT ON.  No two ways about it.

Grundy -
    ...your just showing your stupidity by trying to make it look like you knew what you were talking about.

NO Grudy...that would be YOU!   


Grundy -
   ...this whole thing is going just the way i told you it would go...and its going to continue that way and you can't stand that...........

I said I would not post it again...but here have been the JUST of GRUNDY78's Positions in his own words REPOSTED...yet again.   He ignores it. IM sure all of you get it now:

   Well I guess if you totally IGNORE the post made to you...YEA I've not been right. And you have. 

  NOW if you only look at every single thing you 've posted me from:

- The time you said "$360" Million Jerry paid for the Cowboys proven to be $140 million for the stadium and the team. Boy oh Boy!

- To saying the Cowboys have "CAP PROBLEMS" on a nonexistent cap! - For God Sake!!! Brhahahahaha

- To you telling me.... "YOU KNOW NOTHING OF ANTI-TRUST!" ..... even as I laid out specifics! All placed before you chapter verse and documented case law....... what you then call "LEGAL MUMBO JUMBO" lol such total dellusion

- To you saying "ANTI TRUST has NOTHING to do with the UNION".... simply looking like a damned fool.

- To saying "ANTI TRUST had NOTHING to do with the Draft".....again looking the better part of a fool.

- To "Pointing out "You don't get it do you"... " Pro Sports are Different from regular business"....even as this very POINT! was JUST POSTED TO YOUR IGNORANT A$$ 2 POSTS EARILER!!!!!" baaahhhahahahaahhaahah

- To you saying when EXPOSED TOTALLY using your OWN WORDS CHANGING!!!! changing your own view in mid argument to match that of the winning argument you were just against!!!

- And a Greatest Hit...... "YOU PEOPLE DONT UNDERSTAND ALL THE NEGATIVES....bla bla bla"

THIS! After 3 weeks of having been told over and over about these very "NEGATIVES." Even as you were then saying they had nothing to do with the loss of the Anti-Trust Exemption ~ BLOW TOTALLY OUT OF THE WATER! By none other than Rodger Goodell sighting point for point what I had been telling you for the better party of 3 weeks!

All of a sudden you rush up to say: This could be baaaaaad. lol

- You CONSISTENTLY have taken a position the Players should "TAKE what the OWNERS GIVE THEM and BE HAPPY FOR IT"

That Position has been PROVEN to be INSANE. The Owners MUST Deal Fairly or face the Loss of everything that makes the league Great. EVEN YOUR STUPID A$$ SEES THIS NOW.

And "FAIR" - means what any disinterested party would THINK was fair in deciding how to divid 9 billion. TRANSPARENCY.


- You said the Owners would "ROLL OVER" the Playres. RBhahahahahahahahahahaahahahahah! On the short end of every decision and totally misunderstanding the 'STAY'.

- You said the players "DID NOT NEGOTIATE"...when clearly even after the Lockout began the Players agreed to meet and the Owners said "COLD DAY IN HELL." They were FORCED BACK TO THE TABLE BY THE JUDGE!!! RHhahahaahhhah

- You said "NO JUDGE WOULD TOUCH IT or GET INVOLVED" - being totally SLAPPED DOWN by THAT JUDGE in your position ( Judge Nelson ) when she RULED making every word I'd typed 100% ACCURATE.

You then ATTACK the judge as CORRUPT after her total TRASHING of the NFL Owners Position

You THEN - as if everyone is a fool and noone can read - trying to spin all these TOTALLY WRONG statements made for 3 weeks into "JUST WAIT and SEE"! lol

YOU HAVE BEEN WRONG CONSISTENLY EXPOSED Thouroughly...... and NO Argument as to outcome was given other than the only possible 3 outcomes given in the Threads..... all of which are accurte still!

( I'll leave you to look those up in posts to you )

WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG. Since you've been posting me.

RIGHT down to your critique of my knowledge of the game and your OUT ON A LIMB lol lol lol lol out on a lime prediction a 7th round pick might not be around in 3 years. BRHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Grundy78 THE FOOTBALL GURU!!!!

I have made you look like a damned fool. The sad thing is, you are too STUPID even to KNOW how STUPID you look. the lengths of your delusions have no bounds.

ALREADY they are now saying the NFL made a "BETTER" Counter Offer.  We have no idea what that is, because there is a gag order, but ALREADY they have gotten "MORE" by holding out.     They will get EVER MORE.

I lost?  GOD! You are an IDIOT!

I didnt lose ANYTHING.  You...>AGAIN!...clearly  for the 1110th time  DONT UNDE$Tand ANY OF THI$.

I didnt lose at ALL!   You prove daily what and idiot you are.

Try reading the posts I've posted as I've told you 1109 times.......Get a clue...then post.

I know that your lack of intellectual capacity makes this hard for you...BUT TRY!!!

THE STAY is not, and never was the issue. 

The issue is  D E C E R T I F I C A T I O N  you Idiot. ( you know...the decertification you said didn't matter )

The ruling about the Lockout until the decision was made, but the "LAW" is still 100% on the side of the players.  READ THE RULING!    DAMN!

The stay IMO should never have been granted, but the Right Wing loons on the court hung their hat on WHO WOULD BE HARMED MORE      NOT! Decertification you FOOL.   

AND YOU  -  YES  YOU!  -  Grundy  have even ARGUED!  the Lockout hurts the Players more......are you now a HYPOCRIT as well as a FOOL!?!?!    Its pretty clear the ruling on that point is wrong on its face    


Are you really that oblivious to the facts of this issue?  Really?  Really?  That has been the point you've been arguing?  NO!

And if you can see your way clear to actually reading the ruling....the 2 points of "LAW" on the Decertification came down in the Players Favor YOU IDIOT.

I've told you MULTIPLE TIMES   R E A D I N G    is     F U N D A M E N T A L      you clearly still pay no heed.

IN NO WAY does it end the issue. 

The NFL got a break.  They have not been totally reputiabted by the courts and made to "PLAY FOOTBALL" while the decision on the primary issue is decided.

Revise your post fella.  You don't OWN ME....nothing has Changed IDIOT......

I have however proven in 13++ seperate instances YOU DONT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT.  Now 14+++ because of your idiotic revel in a FAKE VICTORY for yourself today.

Find were I said the Lockout would be lifted?   I'll wait. 

I can copy and paste for you if you cannot be troubled to look for yourself the 3 ways I SAID this can possibly come out.....and  NONE of them lend to YOU BEING RIGHT.     Nothing has changed.

At the end of the day...the players will 100%  Get a better deal than the last offer the owners left on the table when they said  "HELL WOULD FREEZE BEFORE THEY WOULD COME BACK TO THE TABLE THEY ARE BACK AT RIGHT NOW
THAT IS MY POSITION and I 100000000% STAND BY IT.   

YOU are INDEED SolomonGrundy!  lol     &n
bsp;"YOU OWN ME?"  Indeed!  lol lol lol  What a CLOWN.
