Teams barring players?

While some teams may indeed be allowing players onto team facilities, others are not, has learned.

In at least one case, players reported to start offseason workouts. When they arrived, a source close to the situation said, a lawyer working for the team escorted the players into a conference room, handed them a letter, and asked them to leave.

Similar stories are being told to Some teams are providing the illusion of allowing players to work out but once behind closed doors -- and away from the media -- players are told to either leave the facility or are barred from using weight facilities.

In some cases, it appears, teams aren't truly honoring Nelson's ruling ending the lockout.

This is getting nasty and needs to be controlled by Judge Susan Nelson. Or else all hell will break loose even more than it has.

I was on the owners side from the start, and I think the majority of regular people in this country are with them also. They understand the reality of not being able to play a pro sport for a living and be extremely wealthy at the same time. They understand the dynamic of boss/worker relationship, and they see greed at it's best. In our country's legal system when a ruling is passed there may be an appeal. If the owners allow the players to work out and they get injured they are liable. Let's wait for the appeal to happen and then the players will know if they have a certain right or not. With all the players money they dont have a gym memebership? I have one for $20 a month.

I hate the NFL right now and the players.  Wake me up when it's over and these jerks have discovered how to not be greedy a-holes.

I really dont care anymore!!!  And to be honest I am starting to not care if there is even a 2011-2012 season.  I am so tired about hearing this,  about Players wanting this and that.  When you look around and see so many people in this country that is so bad off.

Hellooooo.........There is already an appeal by the owners...
therefore Nelson's order should be basicaly on hold...nothing should be going into place
just because her gavel went down. Peopleo don't get executed until all appeals are exhusted

you don't really think all these guys are rushing back to work becase they like to work do you?
They should have been working out all along. They're just showing up so they get their
bonus checks or any cash and medical entitlements

I don't feel sorry for the players. They are not forced to play football except that is all most of them know. They had a chance for a free education and used it to play football and football only. The owners got their money from being educated not from playing football and they deserve the money that they get. The players get paid very well for playing football, if they saved,invested, or set themselves up with a side company they would be able to live very well for the rest of their lives. The owners need to get all of the rules changed now wihile they can since the players gave up their union. With no union the owners need to change the pay structure and have all of them live by it and the players will come back or new ones will come. Every year a new class comes in and after a couple of years the talent will be restored. The owners however do need to come up with a better healthcare package for the players so they are taken care of when they retire.

There have been several intstances in my career when, for whatever reason, I arrived at work and they said ... can't work today ... go home with pay. If they are honoring the players pay requirements (no more lock out) then they have the right to say go home, no work today. It would be nice to know WHY they are being sent home!

Your comments seem to imply that the educated owe some debt to the uneducated.  While fascinating it is certainly a deviation from every other business where the educated profit from the labors of the uneducated.  You also seem to believe that the owners shorten the lives of the players.   I think the players are smart enough to know that they are choosing fame and money at the expense of potential brain injury and a shortened lifespan.

To correct you, the retired players have only received concessions from the owners.  The NFLPA wouldn't release there records of money for retired players and walked away from a deal that provided more for the pre 93 class than ever before.  Also the ruling says owners can't act as a unit, not that they cannot keep the players out.
