With the meltdown we've been having around here, this is some much needed good news.

Reduced is good. It SHOULD be altogether eliminated.

The whole affair should be shelved. No one intended to break the rules and the NFL had some complicity. The man up solution is to have both parties make a donation to the retired players fund.

The NFL's failure to do anything for so long - to not let the players & teams know anything is completely unfair, moronic & ridiculous

I hope he can appeal it again with the new CBA. There has to be some wiggle room in there somewhere. What would really be funny is if it went on for a couple more years and all the players are retired. The NFL would have spent god knows how much for nothing and would think hard about pursuing something frivalous at best ever again.

Agree! How do you penalize some active players with suspension if others have already retired... as in Pat Williams of the Vikes?
