NFL and Players Head to Court. What Happens Next?
April 6th is a benchmark day for the NFL and their lockout of the players.
Both sides will meet in a Minnesota courtroom to state their case. The players will argue that the league should no longer be allowed to lock them out, while the league will outline the attempts they made to reach labor peace - concessions that were rejected by the players association in mid-March.
There are a variety of "if this, then that" scenarios which could develop following today's gathering. Sifting through this mess is enough to give one a massive headache. If you're short on Tylenol, it's best to read Andrew Brandt's column from National Football Post. To me, he does the best job in explaining what today is all about, and what tomorrow could bring.
Brandt is the former salary negotiator for the Green Bay Packers, recently hired by ESPN to break down such matters.
