    The American Needle Ruling

    Just thought I would get a discussion going on this topic.

    This decision is being hailed as a big win for the players, coaches, and fans. Also, it supposedly decreases the chance that we will see a lockout in 2011.

    Here are a few links.

    It's a very interesting issue. Curious what CF'rs think.

    Re: The American Needle Ruling

    The argument that NFL teams also need each other to play an NFL season also doesn't work, Stevens said. "A nut and a bolt can only operate together, but an agreement between nut and bolt manufacturers is still subject to" antitrust scrutiny, Stevens said.
    probably the best quote from the ruling.
