Welcome to another edition of Bizball Radio

While this week focuses entirely on the NFL lockout, it's worth taking a listen to by baseball fans given the enormous impact that the lockout could have across all of sports.

Our exclusive interview this week is with NFL Players Association spokesman George Atallah.

Topics for the Atallah interview whether the players are being irreparable harmed due to the lockout; how an expedited hearing for the Eighth Circuit factors into the players’ position; comments on a report that surfaced saying a group of as many as 70 players that were dissatisfied that talks broke down on March 11 were seeking representation to have a voice at the negotiating table; whether the players might file contempt of court charges against the NFL; comments on Roger Goodell’s op-ed in the Wall Street Journal and whether the players are looking to upend the “golden goose” by having unlimited free agency, the Draft, and more; and finally, emotional comments regarding Dave Duerson and what the ongoing issue of health and safety for the players in the National Football League.
