The NFLPA has filed a federal lawsuit against NFL, saying Goodell violates CBA by being impartial. Asks for neutral arbitrator.


I'll update when I find a link to the full story.

ETA: I think he meant to type "by not being impartial."

The NFL Players Association has filed a lawsuit against the NFL on behalf of three players suspended in connection with the league's bounty investigation.

The lawsuit was filed in federal court in New Orleans on Thursday. It says NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell violated the collective bargaining agreement by showing publicly he had determined Will Smith, Anthony Hargrove and Scott Fujita had participated in a bounty system even before serving as an arbitrator at their hearing.

The lawsuit asks a judge to set aside earlier arbitration rulings and order a new arbitrator to preside over the matter. The suit comes two days after Goodell denied appeals by four players. The other player, Jonathan Vilma, has sued the NFL and Goodell separately.

Hopefully the judge will demand that he present the other 49,800 pages of evidence he collected to prove that he had a reason to be impartial.

That would shut everyone up.

I say we start a rumor that Goodell was sleeping with Seans wife and thats why they are divorcing and the reason he started this bounty crap to get Sean out of the way.

Me too. Roger needs to provide some evidence that he didn't sleep with Sean's wife.

Farkers get to work. Then he will have to try and disprove the photos.

Good idea. Besides, a photoshopped image of Goodell sleeping with Sean's wife is more proof than Goodell has provided during this whole bounty thing
