I can only imagine Roger Goodell’s secretary buzzing through to his desk repeatedly this morning…”Roger, another owner on the line…wants to talk about the legal thing.” E-mail inbox full. Cell phone melted.
Even I…knowing nothing about law…can tell this “legal thing” more and more favors the players now…except for the not-so-minor fact they actually aren’t getting back to work…yet. A copy of the latest ruling from the current court is here.
I say current because this protracted argument is movin’ on up to Appeals. Denial is not just a river in Egypt, it is the NFL.
USA Today reported Goodell assured those Draft prospects who have come to New York City for tonight’s event there will be football played this season. He did not say if any of them would be playing alongside Keanu Reeves or not. He also did not say if he would be greeting them alone at the podium…or possibly accompanied by someone in a robe.
We may not recognize who brings down the gavel to start this show.
