NFL Lockout Ends as Players, Owners Agree to Deal

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

The NFL lockout that, for the past five months, had threatened to derail the 2011 season has ended with an agreement between owners and players. Thirty-two player representatives voted unanimously to approve the same labor deal that owners approved last Thursday. Who ultimately "won," the players or the owners?

The Wall Street Journal's Nando di Fino has the details of the labor deal. And, Jerry Watson, the owner of the Stadium View Grille in Green Bay, Wisconsin, said he was worried he'd lose millions of dollars if 2011 season was cancelled when we spoke to him back in March. He reacts to the news.
