Players’ Lawyer Ted Olson Calls NFL Lockout Abuse of Monopoly

The National Football League lockout is “a terrible injustice,” players’ attorney Theodore Olson said, adding that he is trying to prevent the U.S.’s most-popular sport from abusing its monopoly.

The former U.S. Solicitor General, who is representing players in a class-action lawsuit against the league, said NFL owners precipitated the labor fight in 2008 by walking away from a deal signed two years earlier.
