    I don't know enough about what's happening to really comment. But this would not be good.
    Basically by decertifying the players took away the leagues anti trust exemption. Without that exemption it is illegal for the clubs to all coordinate together to keep everything equal amongst clubs.
    IMHO the players are playing dirty. Not that I wouldn't do the same thing to try to get a bigger chunk of 9billion, but it is dirty.
    I don't really see it that way. It was the owners who opted out of the current CBA and are trying to change to 18 games and lower the money the players get. The owners are playing dirty and the players are simply doing what they have to to keep from being forced to bend over and grab their ankles.
    I don't see it that way at all. The NFLPA and NFL agreed to the previous CBA, which included an opt-out clause. Exercising a clause that was available to them is not quite dirty.

    Agents, GMs preparing as if league year could start Monday

    Several top agents are advising their clients to prepare for being able to truly hit the free-agent market on Monday, which is when they expect the league year to open. If that happened, there likely would be undrafted rookie free agents hitting the market at the same time as veteran free agents. Many expect the league to implement rules from the 2010 season, though nothing is concrete at this time.
    Things could start picking up pretty quickly.

    I'm sure more will come soon, this is breaking news.

    They're saying the NFL will likely appeal, but that will take at least a little bit of time. Coaches should jump on this to get in touch with players and get at least SOME form of playbook sent out to everyone.
    Nope, not atleast until Friday. Players can workout, meet with coaches etc, but nothing else going to happen.

    Yes, I posted this a couple days ago. What you're referring to was breaking news as of about 20 mins ago. Free Agency and trades should be open on Monday.
