Tom Brady and the player’s association are taking Roger Goodell and the NFL to court. Not necessarily to determine whether or not Brady knew footballs were deflated, but to question the NFL’s process in this matter. Initially it appeared as if this case would be heard in Minnesota, but it has been moved to New York. Many believe this move benefits the league.
NFLPA spokesman George Atallah said on the “Dan Patrick Show” (via Pro Football Talk) that the court case the NFLPA filed in Minnesota has been moved to New York. That doesn’t mean the NFLPA can’t win its appeal. But one has to assume the league had good reason to so badly want the case to be heard in New York and not Minnesota. You don’t secretly plan to file in New York as the commissioner drags out his decision, then rush to beat the NFLPA to the punch the moment the ruling is announced if there wasn’t good reason.
