Interesting Angle By the NFLPA

They have filed a grievance stating Goodell HAD NO AUTHORITY to punish players prior to Aug 4th before the new agreement took effect. LOL

The Union says "in connection with entering into the 2011 CBA, the NFL released all players from conduct engaged in prior to the execution of the CBA, on August 4, 2011."

I found it on ESPN on my way to harass Pat Yasinskas again this morning. I refuse to link to it.

I'm absolutely enjoying the hell out of this.

Interesting. If true, I'm kind of surprised that the NFL's supposed team of ace legal-beagles did not notice it.

Wow, if true, I guess the NFLPA is serious about their support. This is typical legal harassment and call for grievance to make the NFL respond with statements before a legal proceeding. Kind of getting all your ducks in order stuff.

NFLPA is in a tight spot, but they need to challenge it. This has been handled by a man who shows potential of being a dictator in a third world country. I'm over it and him.

I don't see this as a tight spot at all. Pretty clear to me. SHOW THE EVIDENCE. That's what the Union wants. That's exactly what it SHOULD want. Look, if our guy is guilty, then fine. That's what we agreed to (even though we don't like it). BUT, show us the evidence.

Now this angle I like, and if true. Eat it Goodell!

here is a link that briefly covers it.

With Star Caps, A judge ruled the NFL violated a state law of not notifying players within 3 days of the violation. That's the main reason why it was tied up so so long in court.

All the players need is one potential violation of a State or Federal law to do the exact same thing and it looks like the NFLPA is presenting several violations regarding the CBA contract. This could go on for years.
