Players ask judge to force owners to start league year

S. Nelson2

NFL players had until Wednesday morning to respond to the owner’s request for a stay following Monday’s court ruling, but the players didn’t wait that long.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that players sent a letter to Judge Susan Nelson on Tuesday asking for clarification regarding what it means when she says the lockout is “enjoined.” (I guess I wasn’t the only one confused with that word.)

The players are essentially trying to force the league to impose working rules or get the league year started without rules. The primary objective by the players is for the judge to force the league to start the league year.

Now the ball is back in the owner’s court. She ordered the owners to respond by 5 p.m. ET Wednesday, according to Schefter.

This unprecedented, insane week is only going to get crazier.
