Can retired NFL players, who insist they have been ignored by the owners and current players who are negotiating a new labor deal, prevent the 2011 NFL season from starting?

According to a class of retired players, which includes Carl Eller, Franco Harris and Marcus Allen, the answer is yes. These players, who in April joined current NFL players in challenging the legality of the NFL lockout, would like U.S. District Judge Susan Nelson to ensure that they enjoy a voice in the negotiations. If retired players are denied such an opportunity, the plaintiffs want Nelson to prevent the owners and players from reaching a new deal.
