    "Doty overruled a special master, declaring the NFL violated its agreement with the union, which had asked that the TV money be placed in escrow until the end of any lockout. A hearing, yet to be scheduled, will be held to determine damages for the players."

    "In the ruling, Doty revealed that DirecTV would pay up to 9 percent more to the NFL if no games are played in 2011 than if there were a season. And of the total amount payable if there is a canceled season, 42 percent of DirecTV's fee is nonrefundable."

    "Under the CBS and Fox contracts set to expire at the end of the 2011 season, the NFL would have been required to repay CBS and Fox that same year if there were a work stoppage. Under the contracts extended to the 2013 season, the NFL will repay the funds, plus money-market interest, over the term of the contract, Doty wrote. And if the season is canceled, the contracts would be extended another season."

    "NBC's contract through the 2011 season contained the same work-stoppage provisions as the CBS and Fox contracts, according to Doty."

    Found another article that mentions how the contract was written between DIRECTV and the NFL, in the event there is a lockout [link]:

    I think there will be at midnight tonight but it will be settled before the season starts. People will need to start losing paychecks or income before both sides will come back to reality.

    I am not a lawyer, or know much about contracts, but that sounds totally goofy to me.

    if there's a lockout think D* will have the brass to charge people early renewals? they seem to care less about adding HD channels, whats not to say they'll sleezely scoop up monies$$ for a locked out league (if) in the same manner?

    Many people around here were whistling past a similar graveyard just before Vs. went away a year and a half ago.

    Hoosier I dont put anything past DirecTV, and i dont solely mean the no new HD..

    a few months ago i recieved an empty box on 3 occasions, wondering what the EFFFF they were for..
    I then notice i see a fee on my bill for 2 SD recievers..from 2004 and they want them back Ive since replaced them with HD recievers..

    on 3 phone calls because they kept coming back 3 months in a row on my bill each phone call i had to square away with the CSR and their respective managers that they themselves verbally told me they dont want those SD boxes back, but kept billing me and sending me more cardboard boxes --> until i screamed at one rep (via a Charlie Sheen meltdown) and then it never came back on my bill..

    im more than likely to cancel sunday ticket anyways Im not playing Fantasy Football this upcoming year so time to retire it...


    sorry I dont fly the flag of DirecTV fanboyism...they've been more slim shady to me than Eminem..

    I bet as we speak, Satellite Racer and other DirecTV big-wigs are outside the negotiation room offering to shuttle in espresso's, latte's or what ever it takes to keep them talking. DirecTV has plenty at stake in this mess.

    Well, we have a 24 hr extension on the decision if the NFL owners will have a lockout.

    And add another week to that, now 3-11-11 @ 5PM.

    Now we get a window into why the falcons have never won a super bowl.

    That's the opinion of NFC fans. The Bills actually beat most NFC teams during the 4 years they went to the Super Bowl. Just couldn't do anything in the game that really counted. And if Buffalo is stixville, what do you call Pequannock, NJ?
