NFL Lockout Latest

There was a court hearing on Friday in St. Louis whether to enforce an injunction to lift the NFL lockout or throw it out on appeal. The judges are saying that a ruling would come in "due course" and suggest that both sides work out a deal in the meantime.

For the players, a deal now would assure them of getting their paychecks in the fall and might be their best chance to get a decent deal before the court ruling really hurts them.

The one way both sides really lose is if they start missing real games. That would cost both a lot of money.

The players' lawyers took the brunt of the tough questioning, according to reporters there, further indicating that the owners are likely to win this round in court, though it will probably take weeks to get a decision.

News that players and owners quietly resumed talks this week - away from cameras and attorneys - has created the optimism for the first time since the league's lockout began March 11.

From the Boston Globe: Sources on both sides are calling the talks a "very significant step." It was publicly acknowledged that these are settlement talks - something the players want. For legal reasons, they prefer a legal settlement over a traditional collective bargaining agreement.

The Globe added that the NFL Players Association would reform as a union, giving owners something they want.

Free agent offensive lineman Damien Woody, last of the Jets, said players need a deal by late July to have enough time to prepare for the season, according to the Associated Press.
