Since we got bombarded with lockout last night guess what’s filling my “to read” list this morning? Â I thought I’d pass the good stuff along to you guys.
But first, here’s immediate proof of the fall out from yesterday’s ruling:
RTÂ @bluesfan1972: No more money from me for the NFL owners. Cancelled my season tix with the Rams today after the court ruling.
I wonder if Mr. Kroenke has someone on his staff who monitors Twitter feeds…
1) STLToday.com: Nice recap of what’s gone on since March 12, 2011 and what transpired yesterday. Â From the tone of the ruling it looks like the players took a mighty blow in their argument against the owners. Â Basically, the district judge (Judge Susan Nelson) had no jurisdiction over this matter because in the eyes of the 8th Circuit Court this is indeed a case stemming from a labor issue.
2) CBSSports.com: As usual, Mike Freeman, tells it like it is. Â No sugar coating or beating around the bush. Â Could the permanent stay be the beginning of the end for the players’ case? Â Is it time to throw in the towel?
3) ESPN.com: For a follow up to Rick Reilly’s 2006-2008 redraft article Mike Sando addresses what took place in the NFC West. Â It isn’t pretty folks. Â You might wanna cover your eyes. Â I think there’s a reason why the division winner had a 7-9 record last season…
Reports say the players have received a proposal from the owners late last night. Â I’ll keep you guys updated on Twitter (@Aerys_Rams) as the news comes in.
