The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals kept the arguments and the schedule tight and stayed within the prescribed guidelines of a half hour each. Here are my thoughts.
While in theory the players have the stronger argument in Brady v. NFL, in reality they can't wait. Time has been and will continue to be on the owners' side.
With the Eighth Circuit (the Court) set to rule on whether to grant the NFL a permanent stay in the next day or two -- whether to keep the lockout intact until at least early June -- let's press pause and reset where we are in Courtroom football.
