    Doty is now center stage with his $4 bil decision. If he gives the players a hefty chunk of that they can ride a lost season out. Maybe.

              Doty,who has backed the NFLPA in every decision since he has been hearing these cases(and ithas been a number of years)and will ultimately do so again given his record of pro-labor.However,when he does,the owners will appeal and only God knows when that will be resolved.Hard as it is(maybe isn't)to believe butn this is rapidly degenerating in a very political partisan battle and we all know how well the democrats and republicans play together in resolving the country's problems.HELP!The season is doomed unless the NFLPA and the owners sit down and hammer out an agreement unless one or both sides are more concerned with bashing the the other side than saving a$9.68 billion dollar golden goose who has laid dozens and dozens of gold eggs for both sides,a goose that got bigger and more fertile once relative parity was achieved.

    Whatever happened to the mediation process?  And would the players' union need to certify to agree to mediation? 

    It's hard to argue that the NFL with its cap and parity isn't a great product.  With a few exceptions, there are teams that have been able to use the system to go from bad to playoff caliber in a short time.  Good for the league, good for everyone.

    Our court system has deteriorated into "whoever packs the court the most, wins".  It says nothing for justice when the lower courts lurch hard to the left, then the appeals court lurches hard to the right on a 2-1 decision, then the U.S. Supreme Court is balanced 4-4 and so one justice throws the whole thing into one ditch or another.  Overtime is for football teams, not justice.

    The biggest problem for the plyers regarding Doty being their "friend" is time. Even if he gives tham a big chunk of the TV cash, nothing says the players will actually get $$$ in their hands in time. Additionally, there will most certainly be a stipulation in a new CBA that any $$$ "Doty the Just" gives to the players comes right back to the owners. So, the owners do have their foot on the player's throats.

    the union doesnt have to certify... an offer can be made and 50% of players agree and its a done deal... any doty decision on money means nothing..it will be appealed and players will still have to sit... so the stay on the lockout is huge...players will start to crumble... cant stand some of the figure head fraud players and debag smith....thy just dig football man!

    The decision simply means the league can continue its lockout.  It gives the league considerable leverage because they don't have to re-open for business and can squeeze the players until they start to hurt financially. At the same time, there's nothing in the decision that forces the players to do anything--and the main anti-trust claims in the Brady suit haven't been heard yet, so there's still quite a long way to go.  

    Also, as I read the decision, it seems to increase the role of the NRLB in resolving the dispute. We haven't heard much from the NRLB yet, but that will be interesting to hear.  I'll have to do more research to be sure, but I believe that it's the NRLB that will tell us whether the players have to continue bargaining collectively or whether they can move forward as individuals unrepresented by a union.

    The NRLB who is run be an exunion chief... who ruled that Boeing cannot build planes in South Carolina that in every case comes down on the side of unions will most certainly rule in favor of the players.

    The game is WE KNOW WHAT OUR DECISION IS...we just have to find a way to make it read somewhat logical. See Judge Nelson or any Doty ruling.

    The players wont be able to hold out through all the litigation...winning the lockout permanant stay is the straw...

    now if the union would just tell dirt bag to button it an sit in the back of the room for the remainder of the negotiations... something might get done sooner rather than later...
