Until the entire matter is decided Nov. 13 in a Minnesota courtroom, the NFL's new system of free agency, known as Plan B, will remain in effect. That was the impact of a ruling made public yesterday by U.S. District Judge David Doty of Minneapolis. Doty is presiding over the antitrust suit filed against the league by the NFL Players Association after their 24-day strike of 1987 ended without a new contract. In what was publicized as a victory by the NFL Management Council and disputed as such by the players association, Doty denied the union's second motion for a preliminary injunction against Plan B - the new free-agency system that has enabled more than 130 players to change teams since Feb. 1. Doty based his ruling on the same reasons he gave July 12, when he denied the union's initial motion for an injunction.

A judge is expected to rule later this week on a request by NFL owners to punish Norman Braman for his attempt to block the league's labor settlement. U.S. District Judge David S. Doty said yesterday that he plans to answer the owners' unusual request when he makes a final ruling on the peace agreement between owners and players. The judge said he had "no timetable" for his decision. But a source close to the court predicted that Doty would rule this week for two reasons: First, he wants to issue his order before the NFL draft, which will be held Sunday and Monday, because portions of the new agreement directly affect the draft.

Viewed from the legal grandstands, the upshot was that NFL players very nearly got an injunction yesterday granting immediate free agency for almost 300 of them. But the law is like football, and unlike horseshoes and hand grenades. Almost doesn't count for much. At least in the view of two experts on sports and the law contacted by the Daily News, the players ultimately were dealt a mild setback when U.S. District Judge David Doty ruled against their request for a preliminary injunction that would have voided the current free-agent compensation system.

The nine-women jury in the NFL free-agency trial has been reduced to eight. U.S. District Court Judge David Doty, who is presiding over the trial, excused one of the jurors yesterday, less than 24 hours after she told him that she didn't think she could rule in favor of the players because of their high salaries. "She told me she was concerned about one of the questions I asked (during jury selection) about whether the players or owners made too much money," Doty said. "She said, 'I think they (the players)

NFL owners and players have until today to settle their labor differences or face the wrath of a federal judge. U.S. District Judge David Doty warned the two sides yesterday that if they did not come to an agreement on free agency and related matters, he would begin making his own rulings. "If they don't come together, all bets are off," Doty said after meeting with the two sides for more than six hours. "I will rule (today) if they don't reach an agreement. There will be an order issued.

The future of professional football could radically change Monday. U.S. District Judge David Doty is expected to rule that afternoon on the NFL Players Association's request for immediate, unrestricted free agency for nearly 300 unsigned veteran players. Specifically, Doty will act on the players' request for an injunction prohibiting NFL clubs from enforcing free-agent limitations in the absence of a collective bargaining agreement. The veterans' contracts all expired in February.

Attorneys for Eagles tight end Keith Jackson and three other NFL holdouts yesterday asked a federal judge in Minneapolis to declare them free agents. U.S. District Judge David Doty's decision on the request could be the first practical result of the Sept. 10 ruling in an antitrust lawsuit against the league. A federal jury threw out Plan B, the NFL's restrictive free-agency system. Doty heard that case, too. His ruling on Jackson's request is expected in the next few days.

Norman Braman made it clear last week that he values draft picks more than he does the friendship of his fellow NFL owners. As expected, attorneys for the Eagles' owner filed a formal objection to the NFL settlement agreement with U.S. District Judge David Doty in Minneapolis. All objections to the agreement, which still has not yet received Doty's final approval, had to be filed by Friday. A hearing is scheduled for April 16. Eagles cornerback Eric Allen also filed an objection with Doty last week.

You'd think that after two players' strikes and a litany of lawsuits, when it came time to sign on the dotted line and end more than a decade's worth of bickering between the NFL and its players, a simple thing like a calendar would be a mere turn of the page, right? Nope. The so-called calendar issue involves the period of time during which free- agent signings have to be completed. The signing window, so to speak. Until this past week, everyone thought the window was open.

ASANTE SAMUEL says he doesn't care if he starts at cornerback for the Atlanta Falcons. His stance isn't much different from Week 1 last year in Philadelphia after the Eagles acquired Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Even though he started all 14 of his games, Samuel was initially the odd man out. By October, with Philadelphia off to a poor start, he complained about management's desire to reduce his role. With the Falcons, the label of being a starting cornerback is somewhat less relevant.

NEW ORLEANS - Although she was forced to the bench for long stretches twice with knee injuries during her collegiate career, former Germantown Academy star Caroline Doty will get a chance to finish with a third NCAA women's basketball title on Tuesday night. "I'm glad the national championship is my last career game," said Doty, whose Connecticut team will take on Big East rival Louisville (28-8) at the New Orleans Arena. "I hope to go out with a bang. " Doty, a point guard and deadly three-point shooter, was one of the top prospects in the country when she began her UConn career in 2008.

Caroline Doty, a Germantown Academy graduate and now a star basketball player at Connecticut, has treated fans with a trick shot video over the last few years. Last week, she was on the wrong side of trick-or-treating. Dressed as Lady GaGa for Halloween, Doty apparently drew complaints from other residents in her dorm, and they contacted campus police. Police said Doty was banging on doors as she made her way around the halls, and she was issued a citation at 2:15 a.m. The UConn athletic department said the matter was being handled internally.

So here's one way of looking at it: The road to the Elite Eight in women's college basketball this season goes through Germantown Academy. Two former Germantown Academy standouts - Maggie Lucas of Penn State and Caroline Doty of Connecticut - will play against one another in the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA women's tournament Sunday at 4:34 p.m. in Kingston, R.I. Their high school coach, Sherri Retif, will be at the game. But she will be wearing blue - one of the colors of both teams - and she bought her ticket through Ticketmaster, not through either team.

On Sundays, Caroline Doty puts on her Michael Vick jersey and watches the Eagles. Her favorite player is wide receiver DeSean Jackson ("He's such a tiny dude and sky's the limit," she said), but the Vick jersey was a gift from her brother. "There's nothing like being from Philadelphia," said Doty, a graduate of Germantown Academy and redshirt junior for the University of Connecticut women's basketball team. "It gives me an edge. Some people don't see it, some people do. " Doty needs that edge.

AS STANFORD harried Connecticut's backcourt, Caroline Doty had to be thinking that, if she were healthy, things would be different. As Georgetown did the same, she had to believe that, if her left knee were right, she would be enjoying a lovely hometown return in her sport's brightest spotlight. Right? "Oh, no," said Doty, a product of Germantown Academy. "I've never thought, 'If I was in there, things would be different.' I mean, maybe they would. Maybe they wouldn't.

After tearing an anterior cruciate ligament for the third time since her senior year at Germantown Academy, Caroline Doty has not been able to play for the Connecticut Huskies this season. All that free time has given the Doylestown product ample opportunity to develop another skill: the trick shot. About two months ago, at the urging of Connecticut's manager, Greg Mihailides, Doty starred in a video called "Rise & Fire," which as of last week had received more than 160,000 hits on YouTube.

THE PLAYERS' ace in the hole in their snail's-pace labor negotiations with the NFL owners is an 81-year-old ex-Marine captain from Coon Rapids, Minn., with a 28 golf handicap and a fondness for cigars. He is U.S. District Judge David S. Doty and he is the league's worst nightmare right now. He is the reason the owners haven't told the players to take their open-your-books request and shove it. He is the reason that commissioner Roger Goodell repeatedly mentions that talking is better than litigating.

Do not be fooled. This is still about greed. It is a positive development that the National Football League and the NFL Players Association agreed on Friday to extend the deadline for the expiration of their collective bargaining agreement by seven days. The players did not have to decertify as a union on Friday or sue the league for antitrust violations, and the owners did not have to lock the players out. The players still are receiving their health benefits, but teams cannot make any roster moves during the extension.
