The judge told the NFL and the players that she would take a few weeks to review the facts and merits of the case before ruling. There are a fair number of laws to consider in the labor arena, and a lot of "technical" details.
However, the belief is that she will rule in favor of the players, thus creating an injunction to stop the lockout.
What does that mean? Only that the players have the upper hand in negotiations. And that they would technically be allowed to workout and "train" at the team facility. They would not be able to meet with coaches, or have formal practices. And free-agency still would be in limbo.
In other words, this is merely a paper victory at this point. But it would be movement.
The judge did urge both sides to continue meeting and work out an agreement.

A few seasons ago, Bibiana was voted the hottest cheerleader in the NFL. I thought it was time we revisited her - and that honor.
See more pics of her: http://bitchindave.dotphoto.com/CPViewAlbum.asp?AID=6246030
She was on the squad in 2006 and 2007 if memory serves.

....tomorrow is a big day in the NFL labor scheme of things. A federal judge will hear the arguments from the players who want to end the lockout (and the retirees, who were allowed to join the suit), and the owners saying the players union was acting in bad faith when they disbanded...

And of course there was always this epic moment when he took on the Shula steak challenge (yeah, I still call it Joe Robbie, too).
