NFL Lockout to Continue

Some of us All of us were hoping that today would be the day that Judge Nelson would strike down a ruling against the NFL owners and officially lift the lockout and commence the derby of free agency. Alas, that did not come to be. Judge Nelson has instead taken the case 'under advisement', which means essentially that she'll consider both sides' arguments and think about it for a while.

So in other words, don't expect anything to happen anytime soon. Judge Nelson admonished both sides to go back to the negotiating table, sort of hinting "it would be a lot better for everyone if you could just work it out." She didn't order them to, however, so don't expect that to happen.

Since I'm no lawyer I won't even try to explain to you what any of this means, but instead I'll point in you in the direction of some good articles that may shed some light on the situation.

-Albert Breer of the NFL Network put together a really detailed summary of the back and forth in court today and offers his thoughts on what it may mean.

-Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com offers his opinion on the matter, in two different articles.

-Here is a play by play account of what happened throughout the day. This article seems to point towards the NFL having leverage but I've heard differing opinions on that.

-This Yahoo article makes the case that Judge Nelson may be leaning toward the players' side.

-ESPN weighs in on the day in court.
