NFL Lockout legal, rules 8th U.S. Circuit

The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has thrown out a judge's order lifting the NFL lockout. What that means is, the League wins this round and the lockout continues.


The appeal wiped out the April 25th decision by Judge Susan Nelson that put the lockout on hold. This was the next court decision all of us were waiting for. And the next step in the process.


So the lockout is legal, the 2011 NFL preseason is scheduled to begin in less than a month and Free Agency and Training Camps have yet to be determined, not to mention a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. Even though the two sides are in negotiation, it doesn't look good. The Owners have the upper hand, the players have their anti-trust lawsuit and the fans (still) have no football.
