    How you figure?
    Because it at least allows for players access to coaches and facilities if the stay is not granted.
    And you think the players will show up AND work out? I sure don't. I think they'll show up, mill around a bit and then leave.

    =Z=
    Even if they don't, they can, and they can talk to their coaches, get playbooks, advice, anything they need to know.

    Re: Judge Rules in NFLPA's Favor, Lockout lifted

    From my understanding (and its a bit dated as I haven't read any updates since early this morning) this really doesn't mean much other than.

    a. The doors to the facilities are opened.

    b. The players start to get paid again.

    When it comes to things like working out and trades (play books being handed out) the league said no to all especially the work outs. That last thing they want to happen is have someone come in for a day and then get hurt.

    Additionally, they will not be handing out playbooks only to take them back again if the apeal is upheld.

    I short, the players are getting paid again. Thats about it, from what I understood about 0700 AM this morning.

    "It's very chaotic for the teams right now," Allen's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said. "It's not chaotic for the players. Our position is, the lockout is over, free agency should begin, signings should begin, offseason workouts should begin, everything should be going on. The longer the NFL doesn't do that and drags this out, the more there are concerns of collusion and violations of antitrust laws."
    NFL to teams: Be nice to players, but no on-site workouts

    It all boils down to money, in the end, ........

    Major win for the players. Hopefully this pushes the owners to make a deal. From what I have heard it is very unlikely the Owners will win on appeal.

    I don't know enough about what's happening to really comment. But this would not be good.

    I read this earlier and thought some of the counter points to Roger's doom were interesting

    Roger Goodell's Wall Street Journal Op-Ed Is A Scare Tactic, And Here's Why

    Roger Goodell's op-ed piece in Tuesday's Wall Street Journal is filled with scare tactics and red herrings. We explain why you shouldn't buy his rhetoric.

    He explained this tonight on NFLN. Basically he said the players are challenging thngs like the draft, salary cap etc as bad things that they want to go away.

    Jeff Saturday, of course followed up and said all they want to do is get back to work.

    Of course both had other things to say, those were just the ones that stuck in my craw.

    sounds like they are attempting to scare the owners into a more favorable CBA than what was offered
    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

    I think he's trying to strike a blow against the players in the pr battle through the media, its the players that are going to ruin the game the owners just want to have the games.....even if they locked out the players and scrapped the last cba early.
