Scott Dierking Posted April 26, 2011 Share Posted April 26, 2011 The preliminary injunction was the whole fight. The owners lose on appeal (which they will) on the injunction issue then they're toast. There is no way the owners are going to spend millions of dollars in legal fees to litigate an anti-trust case for years. Brady v. NFL was all about negotiating leverage and the players have it. The same thing that happened with White v. NFL will happen now. The players bitchslap the owners in the early legal battles and either the parties agree to a new CBA or the court will impose one. Therein lies the real battle (negotiating the CBA). The rest of this is all preliminary dancing to gain leverage. This cuts to the chase. But negotiating the CBA will be a battle of wills. If the players walk away again, the court of public opinion will sway from their side. Hopefully this forces both sides to negotiate in good will.
