Dallas Cowboys Tidbits: Lockout Injunction Coming? Schedule To Be Released

New, comments
Are the lawyers for the NFL players happily striding towards an injunction, or is it just another round of (cheap) shots at a quick resolution?

Just some quick notes I wanted to pass on that will hopefully brighten your Tuesday mornings. Just saw a tweet from Peter King that he expects Federal Judge Susan Nelson to enact an injuction in the players favor on the lockout.

Any gut feeling on nelson's ruling? ... Yes. I think Nelson will issue an injunction favoring the players by the weekend.

-- Peter King

Now, I don't trust King's player evaluations one bit, but in regards to league insider knowledge, he is one of the best. Since media is locked out of the proceedings, King could be relaying what he is hearing from the owner's camp. Of course, an injunction will be followed by appeals, so we probably still shouldn't expect a resolution before the draft. However, this is much better news than the varying reports that the mediation is just a dog and pony show for the judge, and that the sides aren't really trying to reach a resolution.

-- The NFL is set to announce the full league schedule in a special that airs 7pm eastern on NFL Network. Of course, we expect to have information leaked throughout the day, so as soon as we get wind of Cowboys related games and broadcasts we will bring it to you. [NFL.com] The NFL will still be playing a game in London, England this season. Tampa Bay and Chicago are slated for the match up on the other side of the pond. Super Bowl champion Green Bay is expected to host the inaugural game of the season, the Thursday Night kickoff.
