If a contracted company doesn't uphold its end of the contract, legal recourse is ABSOLUTELY an option, and a damned good one if you ask me. Courts won't be able to reinstate Sean Payton or 51, but they can order that ALL 50,000 pages be turned over in which case, it will be open source. Then Goodell will have no choice but to step down. Then, politically speaking, the next guy would have to reinstate those suspended because the evidence is out and everyone knows the truth. This is absolutely a breach of contract. That's a thing in America. There's blood in the water!
Yes it is... and that contract (agreement between all the players collectively and the NFL) granted Goodell the power to be "Judge, Jury, and Executioner".

That is the problem... Had the very players that are claiming he does not have that power not given it to him, they would have a legal case. So far there is no breach of contract, only an execution of powers granted.

At this point, all they can pursue with any realistic expectation of success are personal cases for slander and deformation of character.

They can also go on strike. Hell, they should at least threaten to go on strike. Again, "you signed the deal now live with it" just doesn't fly with me, because who in their right mind could have foreseen Roger going bat **** crazy like that?

The NFL isn't operating in good faith. So yeah, the players are 'stuck', right up and until the either strike and threaten to strike. If they are truly appalled by this whole thing the strike card is their best bet.
