New Sports Illustrated Column: Eighth Circuit grants temporary stay -- NFL Lockout is Back On

Here's my new SI column on tonight's big news from the Eighth Circuit: Judge Nelson's preliminary injunction order has been temporarily stayed and the tea leaves suggest the order will be made permanent. 


I think you are vastly underestimating the willingness of the majority judges to rule for the NFL. Given the complexity of the case, and despite the narrow areas they are expected to review regarding Judge Nelson's decision, they will be able to find firm enough legal ground to make any ruling they wish. The fact that they... "want" to rule in favor of the NFL will lead to an eventual 2-1 decision in the NFL's favor. This isn't American Needle, that was a, forgive me, Hail Mary.
