BREAKING: NFL gets their expedited request for a hearing

((ht: albert breer/nfl.com))

And no, we aren't 100 percent sure what that means. The one thing we are pretty sure of is that the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis has granted the NFL what they call a "Quick" hearing...on June 3rd.

This per NFL.com reporting guru Albert Breer who tweeted the information just minutes ago.

What we think this means is the lockout will be in place for at least another 30-days until the case is heard. Though Breer has tweeted that no decision about the temporary stay the NFL requested has been made...so, standby caller.

Here is Breer's story for NFL.com RIGHT HERE

For the scant few of you unsure of what we speak, the case in question was the NFLPA (not a union--well, actually some of their players) lawsuit against the NFL for unfair labor practices among other things. There was a hearing held in that suit to force the league to open the doors while the suit proceeds through the legal process. A Federal Judge in Minnesota agreed two weeks ago, telling the league they have no case, open up for business. The league appealed and got a temporary stay while the appeals court considered it.

They considered it...we're on hold and we be most of you--like us are sick and tired about speaking in legalese in regards to football.

More as the story develops.
