What confuses me about these legal wranglings is the status of the NFLPA.
They decertified as a union by vote, so individual players could bring an anti-trust class action lawsuit against the NFL. By implementing the injunction, Judge Nelson has pretty much ruled that the decertification is legit and that the NFL needs to get back to the business of football.
But there are no rules in place because of the expiration of the collective bargaining agreement. Who are the owners supposed to bargain with to get a new CBA in place if the union doesn't technically exist? If the union can be recreated at the drop of a hat, with the same leadership and the same membership - did it ever really not exist? And if it didn't ever not exist, shouldn't the injunction be lifted?
