I want to tell you that Monday's ruling ordering the lockout to be lifted means football this upcoming season, but I can't.
I don't know.
And it's not as if I haven't asked. I've called as many lawyers as I could in between 6 p.m. and midnight last night.
Did Judge Susan Nelson overstep her bounds by ruling the dissolving of the union was not a sham? Will the court of appeals uphold the injunction or reverse it? Does the 2011 season begin now as the players contend? When the players show up to work today, do the teams have to let them do everything inside the facility or else be found in violation of the judge's order? Will the draft involve trades?
We are in unchartered territory. Never before has a ruling come down and, at least for a moment, a league and a group of players interpreted it differently.
