Judges urges NFL, players to 'come back to the table'

U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson urged the NFL and its players to go back to a federal mediator as she considers their arguments for and against a continued lockout by the owners.

After Wednesday's hearing she told both sides that it will take at least a couple of weeks for her to make a fair decision and that they should take that opportunity to return to find a resolution.

"Both sides are at risk," Nelson said. "This is a good time to come back to the table ... the federal table. There's no consequences there. This is a matter that should be resolved. It affects many people."
