All hail Judge Susan Nelson.
She has ruled for the NFL players and granted an injunction to lift the lockout. It will be appealed by the owners, but this is the first step to maybe having football in 2011.
Let's be real. All the fans care about is whether games will be played. Can they have fantasy leagues? Can they make plans to travel to away games? On and on it goes.
They are tired of this lockout talk.
They just want their NFL football.
Judge Nelson took the first step to making that happen. If this legal fight drags on, so be it.
If games are played, nobody cares if there is a court case hanging over the league.
The NFL Draft begins Thursday and there is no buzz. The league has plans to go black after the draft.
Is that fun?
We want free agency. We want mini-camps with young quarterbacks having heads spinning like a top . We want mini-camps with unsigned rookies showing up high draft picks.
We want football.
You do. I do.
The ruling by Judge Nelson might make that more of a possibility now than it was a week ago.
Thank you, Judge Nelson.
The fans appreciate what you did. They don't care who wins this legal fight.
All they want is to see football in September.
