Report: NFL Players Union Decertifies

Mort reporting NFLPA decertifies in federal court in Minneapolisless than a minute ago via TweetDeck

Chris Mortensen is reporting that the NFL players union has decertified in a federal court in Minneapolis.  This comes after a week long extension was given to last week's initial deadline.  Now the former player's union will head to court and try to force the NFL owners to open their books.

Best case scenario obviously would have been for an agreement to be reached without this step being taken because it is just going to make the rift between the two sides bigger than it already was.  Now it looks like this thing is going to go right up until the games are supposed to be played because that is really the next deadline.  It is going to be a long summer.
