The 8th Circuit Court ruled that the lockout can continue, saying the court can't issue orders to end strikes or lockouts. Here's the joint NFL-NFLPA statement following that decision:

"While we respect the court's decision, today's ruling does not change our mutual recognition that this matter must be resolved through negotiation. We are committed to our current discussions and reaching a fair agreement that will benefit all parties for years to come, and allow for a full 2011 season."
