Default Owners and Players: Ruling won't stop negotiations

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...-negotiations/

Anyone worried that today’s ruling allowing the lockout to continue could slow the pace of negotiations to end the lockout should feel good about a joint statement released by the NFL and the NFLPA* hours after the ruling was handed down.

The joint statement from both sides in the negotiation said that the negotiation will go on as planned, and that the appeals court ruling doesn’t change that.

“While we respect the court’s decision, today’s ruling does not change our mutual recognition that this matter must be resolved through negotiation,” the statement said. “We are committed to our current discussions and reaching a fair agreement that will benefit all parties for years to come, and allow for a full 2011 season.”

Those discussions are continuing today. Both sides sound committed to keep the discussions going until an agreement is reached.

The allowance for the district judge to rule for the players who are free agents and rookies keeps the owners from bringing the hammer down on the players. The owners did win a bit of leverage with the new deal, but not much if any. This would have been more of an issue if the court ruled for the players and reinstated the injunction.
