Tweet Beat: NFL Spring Meetings Start Tomorrow, Lockout Day 72

Yes, I know. You are tired of hearing about the lockout and don't want to talk about it anymore until there is real progress made. However, it is a huge story that deserves its coverage. I completely understand those of you that don't want to talk about it anymore, so I will try to keep this latest update short and sweet, hence Tweet Beat returns.  This time, the lockout update is on the precipice of the NFL Spring Meeting in Indianapolis.

The Spring Meeting is an annual event where high ranking league executives gather to discuss pertinent league and team topics.

My feeling on where we are (said it for a while): 8th Circuit ruling on appeal, NOT the stay, has always been the pivotal one. So we wait.less than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply

@dkaplanSBJ I get your point, but to me, big thing about stay ruling was wording of opinion ... B/c it related to chances of winning appeal.less than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply
