Conflicting reports on lockout highlight fluidness of situation

via www.ibew.org

Pro Football Talk are reporting (via Michael Silver of Yahoo) that the 8th circuit court of appeals are granting the NFL a stay on Judge Susan Nelson's ruling which would lock the players back out. Essentially those who arrived at facilities early this morning got their playbooks, talked with coached and went over the plans for mini camps. If a player was to arrive this afternoon... no dice.

As it stands right this second Cam Newton was scheduled to meet with coaches for the rest of the afternoon. Hopefully the organization will be able to expedite this as much as possible in order to maximize the time they have... jeez, it's just like the movie 'The Notebook'... sorry, I digress.

What this does mean, however, is that any hopes of these being player trades during the 2011 draft are dashed meaning that for now Steve Smith will remain a Carolina Panther, and the team will be unable to amass more picks. 

UPDATE: Basically nobody really knows what's going on. PFT retracted their original report here. Meanwhile, some players over Twitter are saying they've been asked to leave team facilities. 

In short, nobody really has any clue what's going on.
