Granted, my legal experience consists of "in Tailgate, I read lots of posts from people who know what they're talking about. And sometimes I think I understand them."
But from what I understand, a stay is really unlikely. The way I understand it, to get a stay, the NFL has to convince an appeals court judge that the odds are very likely that if there's no stay, then the NFL will suffer irreparable harm.
Me, I don't see them being able to even make a feeble argument at that.
To me, they might have a legitimate appeal. But they have no chance at a stay, while they wait for the appeal.

Also, Mort is saying that the league is operating under last season's rules and that if this goes to the actual anti-trust case, it could continue until next off-season, but that would give us a year of football.

They just reported on NFLN that if the stay is denied by Nelson on appeal then player signings and trades could happen in "days" not weeks

So, like Laron asked, does that mean business as usual? Any chance we see any trades? Or are the owners not going to make any moves just to spite the players?
Thanks SOUP for the sig!!

I suspect that the real impact, if the lockout ends, is that some players are going to be earning roster bonuses and things. That's what the NFL really didn't want to happen, I suspect.
