Today... according to the CBA

The CBA dictates (for what ever that is worth), that Goodell present the NFLPA with his evidence he plans on using at the appeal hearing on Monday.

Article 46, Section 2(f)(ii) of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, which states that "the parties shall exchange copies of any exhibits upon which they intend to rely no later than three (3) calendar days prior to the hearing." Any exhibit not disclosed by then can't be introduced at the hearing.
Note: Calendar days not business days.

What ever evidence is not presented to the NFLPA today can not be used in the hearing...

Fine and dandy...

What is not clear (to me at least) is in the interest of disclosure are the investigators going to be made available for the NFLPA to talk to before and depose?

Does Goodell even need to provide any evidence to win? I assume this is not "American" as in innocent until proven guilty; but more of like throwing a replay flag.... The call on the field is guilty and the players have to provide enough evidence to have Goodells ruling over turned?


Either way I will try and monitor the news this weekend to see if any of the evidence the NFLPA receives is "leaked".

I am sure the courier service the NFL will use to deliver it all to the NFLPA will follow their historical actions... The players will see the evidence either on ESPN or read about it in Yahoo Sports.

Yeah, no surprise the NFL will wait until the zero-hour to make whatever portion of the documents they choose available. Here NFLPA, we've planned your weekend for you ...

The problem with this whole thing, at least from what little I know, is that ( I guess) Roger can interpret the 'evidence' however he wants to. In other words, he can call it a 'bounty' when we all know good and damn well that's not what it was, and he can prosecute on HIS definition.

It's a damn shame. The players should strike.

No strike... But thats correct Saintfan.

"Conduct detrimental" can be anything from a bounty to the use of profanity... Its one huge ass gray area.

it's past 4:00 eastern and still no news
Zero evidence has been provided, yet Vilma is gone for a year. Either way, it will be good to see something, anything from RG
