Judge ends lockout

But owners vow to appeal

With the news about Judge Nelson ending the lockout, it looks like things could be setting up for an agreement soon … That’s good for us, the fans.
Pending the appeal to the higher court, it looks to me like the owners are being painted into a corner.
The courts have ruled twice in favor of the players and I doubt the owners’ appeal will stand. I’m no lawyer, but I would hope the
owners are huddling right now for damage control and mapping out a plan toward settling this issue.
The really good news is that this decision could allow players to star negotiating deal – a good thing for both the players’ and owners’ camps.
I say it’s time for the two sides to get serious about settling this issue. Not only will a settlement allow all football fan to get on with the task of looking forward to a 2011 season, but will give Packers the chance to continue celebrating being world champs.
