National Football Post - [Full Article]

The NFL has filed its request for an immediate stay of the injunction (keeping the lockout intact) with Judge Nelson. The Players' response is due tomorrow morning. Nelson should rule by late tomorrow. If she rules for the Players, the NFL will request an immediate appeal to the Eighth Circuit to stay the injunction, which could take a couple to a few days. Either way, it is unlikely we will have NFL business during the Draft this week.

One possibility is that Judge Nelson allows for a temporary stay of the injunction -- a week perhaps -- to allow the NFL to get its house in order and set up rules to operate by during this temporary period of litigation.
