Judge Orders End To NFL Lockout, Football Season Still In Jeopardy
Winter is long enough in Central New York with football season, I can’t imagine a winter without it! As the warmer temperatures and rain signal the arrival of spring, a new court ruling could signal the coming football season. NFL players got an early win over the owners in court. U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson ordered an immediate end to the lockout yesterday, siding with the players in their bitter fight with the owners over how to divide the $9 billion business. However, the fate of the 2011 season remained in limbo. The NFL responded by filing a notice of appeal questioning whether Nelson exceeded her jurisdiction, seeking relief from the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis. Hours later, the league filed a motion for an expedited stay, meaning it wants Nelson to freeze her ruling to let the appeals process play out. Stay tuned.
