I don't want to try and speculate at what this could mean so I'll let everyone else do that. I wanted to put together a link-dump so fans can easily find out what's going on with these NFL Lockout shenanigans. For a succinct summation, I'd offer - Judge Nelson has lifted the lockout but the NFL is appealing the ruling to the 8th circuit court and if they grant the stay, there will be a period of limbo while they try to determine whether Judge Nelson's ruling was 'correct' or... whatever. In the meantime, teams are technically allowed to trade and whatnot.. kind of.. but not really. And none of them will so don't get your hopes up. I don't think.
