NFL To Officially Announce A Lockout Tonight

Hours after the NFLPA went nuclear and decertified, Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that the NFL will announce a lockout tonight and if that’s the case, it will be up to the courts to decide what happens next.

The prevention of players from playing is the NFL’s ultimate leverage while the players’ ultimate leverage is decertification, which they enacted earlier. The antitrust lawsuit filed by nine players Friday evening aims at preventing a lockout. It’s possible, perhaps even likely, that the league’s lockout effort will be blocked by the courts. That’s when appeals will be filed.
