NFL Lockout Begins

NFL owners have officially locked out the players.

The NFL owners sent a message to the players, and it's the same message that they've been sending to the fans for years.

From The Sporting News

When NFL owners decided to enact their lockout strategy Friday night, coming on the heels of the NFLPA’s decision to decertify, the litigation locomotive was full steam ahead.

The lawsuit Tom Brady vs. the NFL was filed Friday, and the courtroom battle promises to be a bumpy ride that could lead to a shortened preseason and maybe even a reduced season. In the end, two sides couldn’t decide how to divvy up $9 billion.

When players couldn’t get the proof they said they needed to warrant the owners’ desired “giveback” from the old CBA, they announced they were decertifying and bringing an antitrust suit against the NFL.

The NFL responded on Friday night by making good on its threat to lock out the players, creating the NFL’s first work stoppage since 1987. It puts the 2011 season in jeopardy, though most legal experts don’t believe the entire season will be lost.
