Question

I'm sure everyone is sick of this by now, but I need some clarification on something.  I apologize in advance if the answer has been posted someplace but I don't read every single blog.

As we know, the NFL's injunction hearing begins today, the winner of which will have a substantial leg up in their battle to get richer.  We also know that the loser will surely appeal whatever decision is set forth.  An appeal hearing won't be scheduled for several weeks, likely after the NFL draft is over.

Now from what I read, it is more likely than not (although certainly no slam dunk) that the injunction will be granted, which will end the lockout.  The players will argue that the NFL is a monopoly, which it most definitely is, and also that not playing a season will cause irreparable harm to the players.  Given their already very short windows of opportunity, this is also a very solid argument for the players.  The question is, if/when the injunction is granted, can player transactions begin immediately?  Does that give teams a "window" between the initial decision and the appeal?  Or does the current situation stay in effect until after the appeal is heard?  Any clarification is appreciated.
