A federal court said it could take weeks before it decides whether to grant an injunction sought by NFL players to stop a league-imposed lockout. That's because the judge wants both sides to agree to federal mediation to help resolve an impasse in finalizing a new collective bargaining agreement, according to Bloomberg. “Both sides are at risk. This is a good time to come back to the table,” the judge said. “This is really a matter to be resolved, in my view, with the services of the federal court.” Today's hearing in St. Paul lasted five hours.

The 8th Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday granted the NFL's request for a temporary stay on an injunction that lifted an owner-imposed lockout on players. That means the lockout is back on, just a couple of days after a Minneapolis judge's decision had lifted it. Now the appeals court will review briefs by players and the league and could rule on a full stay sometime next week. Whatever happens, it's clear the labor strife handcuffing the league and its players is having an impact on fans. On Thursday, ESPN's coverage of the always-popular NFL Draft drew 6 million total viewers, 1.3 million fewer than 2010's edition, Bloomberg said. The rating for the telecast that covered the draft's first round was a 4.4, a 17% dip. Even players are confused: During last night's broadcast on Sirius XM's NFL Network, the Minnesota Vikings newly drafted quarterback, Florida State's Christian Ponder, said he was heading to camp Friday. He probably showed up just in time to see the padlocks click shut on the Vikings' facilities.

OK - the players will be out of shape and the football will probably be pretty sloppy for a month or so - but it's football. So OK.

About the only thing to be sure of this year - New England will be good.
