NFL says original order has 'sufficient guidance'

The NFL filed two pretty major documents on Wednesday afternoon. The first was their Reply to the players' request for a $1 billion bond . The second was their letter in response to the players' request for clarification on Judge Nelson's ruling to lift the lockout.

Essentially, the players wanted Judge Nelson to state more deliberately that the NFL, based on her ruling, is required to start the league year. The NFL argued in their letter that Judge Nelson's ruling already contains "sufficient guidance."

In other words, they don't believe it requires additional clarification. The league also attached the players' Proposed Order (for clarification) which, if signed, would lift the lockout for a full year. The league's attorneys argued, however, that the Order would also eliminate the Draft -- like, the one tomorrow -- as well as free agency and franchise tags.

• Thurs. 7 p.m. ET: NFL DRAFT Live coverage

To sum all of it up, there's nothing too incredibly shocking about all of this; the NFL wasn't ever going to make a legal mistake of responding in a manner that abandoned their current stance on how they perceive Judge Nelson's ruling.

And it's possible, perhaps even likely, that Nelson will simply rule to leave her current ruling as it is, and avoid any attempts at clarification. If that's the case, then this is a non-issue. If she rules for the players, though, things could get kind of hairy kind of quickly.

How can Judge Nelson request that the NFLPA negotiate with the NFL (which they did) and then a few days later rule that the NFLPA is not a union representing its members in a labor dispute ?

The owners are the greediest SOBs I've ever seen. The league is pulling in billions and wants to run it like a slave labor shop. And all you dumba_ss_es on here defending the owners, I'm sure you can't wait to fork up another couple grand for those season tickets. Enjoy, fools...

agreed. The players are looking at what they can get for themselves and right now, not the bigger picture. This could get very ugly, and players need to realize this.

I'm ready for all of this to be finished. 
Put in a Rookie Wage Scale. Then with the money they are saving, make a certain percentage go towards the retired players. Raise the veteran minimum. The Owners can keep the rest to do what they want with. Leave everything else the same, except make it to where a team can't use ANY type of tags on a player 2 years in a row. There is no way possible that the Owners can be losing money. The players are crazy if they think the Draft and Tags are going away. 
Owners get more money. Retired players get more help. Vets get more money. Rookies end up not being overpaid.

Almost as dumb as some of the player fanboys here that don't understand they are literally trying to destory the NFL, and the game because players are temporary help, but want it all now.

Not Mike Freeman, or Gregg Doyel dumb, but in fairness it is unlikely we will see that level of stupidity in even the next generation.
