Our exclusive interview this week is withAssociate Professor of Law at Tulane University and the Director of its Sports Law Program,Gabe Feldman. Gabe is an often sourced expert in the media, and is a must-follow on Twiiter @SportsLawGuy. Gabe and Maury break down the latest proposal by the NFL to the players that look like the best chance to end the lockout in the league that is now over 100 days old. We look at the revenue breakdown and whether it's a win or loss for each side in the labor dispute.
