N.Y. Jets owner Woody Johnson is "positive that we will" have a 2011 football season.
"I don’t know if I have a rationale for that positivity but I continue to think if we get back to the negotiating table, that’s where it’s going to happen," he told CNBC Thursday. "Litigation is not the answer, it’s negotiation."
A federal appeals court on Monday allowed a lockout of National Football League players by the team owners to continue until a June 3 hearing. The collective bargaining agreement between the owners and players expired in March without either side coming to an agreement on how revenue should be divided.
