8th District court rules in owners favor

Recommended Posts

Dam politically motivated judges. What right do they have to base their decisions on established precedent?

Shows I should read the decisionn instead of the posted tweets. From what doggin posted it doesn't sound like it was based on established precedent, but on an activist (understandably based on the fact that it was apparently made to foster racial equality) piece of legislation. It doesn't sound like it was put in place to help the Man.

In my interpretation it established where the federal judges had jurisdiction, and where they don’t . They seemed to have ruled that Nelson didn’t have jurisdiction. That is what the NFL challenged before her ruling.

"Activist legislation" - that's a new one for me :lol:

The owners claim they they get bent over by an overzealous Tagliabue who only wanted usher a deal, and not have to deal with a work struggle. The former deal does not account for all of the revenue streams, does not adequately address revenue sharing and does not account for all the outlays the owners have,

Extending a deal only continues to allow discontent to fester, and doesn't solve the problems. They need to work this out.

Well said.

Lets get a long term deal done now so this lockout crap doesnt happen again anytime soon.

this tweet sums it up pretty well as to which side will cave first

I think the NFLPA brought this on itself. I've been complaining about it from the start. It's obviously a sham decertification, but they didn't even pretend. They decertified the way Michael Scott declared "bankruptcy". At least go through the motions.

Hey DeMo, want recant this statement, "And then they lock the players out and took football from our fans, and yesterday they lost"?

I dunno. This is different than previous "strikes"

there is no picket line to cross (owners locked out all of football)

there is no rush to get back to OTA and training camps

the owners have economic liabilities as well (season tickets, advertisers, etc)

it's gonna be a long fight and the players fight for a living

all jokes aside this thing is not going to be resolved by a simple cave

It most likely won’t happen in the near future, but the way for this to get resolved is for the players to re certify their union with new leadership who will negotiate instead of litigate

At this point, it does not take any genius to figure out the language that the Court used in its decision does not preclude any type of appeal. Smith needs to understand that. Hopefully he will June 3rd.

At that point, they need to lick their wounds and come to the table together in good faith.

I agree 100%, but if that happens the owners need to come to the table with compromise in mind, and not thumping their chests as the victor.

If they both sit down in good faith they should be able to work something out in about two days. Or at least get enough done to lift the lock out.

We’ll see
