    Arbitrator rules in favor of NFL in bounty case

    Arbitrator backs NFL in bounty case, affirms Goodell's disciplinary power - NFL - CBSSports.com News, Rumors, Scores, Stats, Fantasy

    between this and the ledger that's being discussed, I'm guessing the player penalties are going to stick, and Jonathan Vilma's lawsuit will go absolutely nowhere.

    Re: Arbitrator rules in favor of NFL in bounty case

    Not trying to stir the pot but what makes the arbitrator even at all neutral? Like does he not draw a paycheck from the NFL? I'm not trying to make an argument, I'm just curious.

    The arbitrator, in this case Stephen Burbank, has been an arbitrator for the NFL for like 10 years now. I believe his services are agreed upon in the CBA. Both sides have a say in it.

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Re: Arbitrator rules in favor of NFL in bounty case

    The union said in a statement it "believes that the players are entitled to neutral arbitration of these issues under the CBA and will continue to fight for that principle and to protect the fair due process rights of all players." The NFLPA noted Burbank wrote that "nothing in this opinion is intended to convey a view about the underlying facts or the appropriateness of the discipline imposed."
    So this was just to determine if Goodell had the power to discipline them?

    yes. That's been the union's stance. correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't know that they've challenged the league on the validity of the bountygate accusations. They've mostly stayed with the "Goodell specifically, doesn't have the authority to punish for salary cap issues, or the league doesn't have the authority to punish for acts prior to the signing of the last CBA."

    As far as I know, Vilma is the only one challenging the suspension or he just wants to see the dirt Goodell has on him.
