Since you got all of the answers, I thought I should introduce new reporting to you:

NFL players filed for an injunction to end the NFL lockout last year, but ultimately lost on appeal: “But they lost it on jurisdiction,” said Mort Mitchnick, a labour lawyer with the Toronto-based firm Borden Ladner Gervais LLP. “So no one’s clear yet, as to what the real answer is, in terms of whether you can actually [end] the lockout.”

During the NBA lockout, NBA players opted against filing that injunction, and instead filed for the treble damages: “And two weeks later, they had a deal,” Mitchnick said. “Often times, it’s the threat and the uncertainty of what’s hanging over your head that causes things to change.”
