I'm still waiting to see if the NFL appeals the Watson ruling and allows Goodell to hand down his own suspension.  They are not obligated to accept that ruling.

 

Yeah but then the risk for Roger and the NFL is Watson and NFLPA sue him and win.  League doesn't want more losses in court as have had enough.  Would think they have a decent chance at winning as this arbitrator stated wasn't enough serious issues or something along those lines.

Highly highly unlikely that would happen and they would win. Courts are very reluctant to get involved in collectively bargained agreements...if the NFLPA didn't want him to have that power they should have not agreed to it, not try and challenge it in court after the fact.

I can maybe get behind not including the player. But there should  be a very major fine for agents who participate in these conversations as well. 

They aren't part of the NFL.  I don't see how you can fine them.

Highly unlikely they win given the CBA still gives Goodell final say.  It's the NFLPA's fault for agreeing to it.  The wording in Judge Robinson's written decision makes it very easy for Goodell to suspend him as long as he wants if the NFL appeals the suspension.

I would like to thank Belichick for making this all come together. 

 

Brady is a piece of ***** also for tampering but won't get in trouble. 

 

Good thing is every team that has lost a first round pick was b.c of Brady.

May be true but even when the player clearly engages back and have active, meetings, and open discussions in response?

 

What is the official tampering rule? Feel like it says "Players may not...." as well as "Teams may not..."

 

 

You can top feeling that way because it doesn't say that at all.

 

If a team reaches out to a player--the team is tampering and faces penalty.  That's it.

 

If a player reaches out to a team, the team is supposed to report it to the NFL.  No player in the NFL is bound to report tampering to the NFL. 

 

It's the same in the NBA. MLB has the same rule.  So does the NHL.   Why are people acting as if they have just learned about tampering and its rules?

They actually can. All agents are certified. All teams who negotiate with an uncertified agent are fined 30k. I believe in situations like Lamar, there is a $30k fine for negotiating with a non-accredited agent.

So you can't "TALK" to a player before the time allotted & you are given all that punishment but you can expose yourself to a bunch of women while getting a massage and make lewd implications numerous times and only get 6 games ??? 🤔

 

Which is a worse look for the NFL ?

I guess it’s onto Brady in 2023.  It will be fun beating him twice at 46.  IDC about the Fins.  We’ll beat them again twice this year to make it 9 of 10 in JA17.

I mean there’s no way they can get Brady now, can they? Or Sean Payton?

As the judge stated, Watson wasn't informed by the nfl prior to his acts that it was wrong.  (Not verbatim but basically what she said)

 

No joke.

 

Though I think that this is a precursor to Godell appealing for 12 games for Watson in hopes the NFLPA doesn't file against them.  Basically him saying, "see, we punish owners too"

Maybe he wasn't informed but - - - well never mind common sense of what's wrong or right doesn't exist much today so i'll leave it alone .
