I am not going to go through Brown vs the NFL etc as has been discussed several times. The Supreme Court of the United States of America has told the NFL in no uncertain terms that attempting to control player salaries through collusion without the existence of a CBA was illegal. The court has also stated that things that are required to have a game to play such as having rules against cheating in the actual game is a different story. The NFL agreed with the players to not to do that and the Cowboys and Redskins as well as the other teams listed honored the ruling of the Supreme Court. SCOTUS has voiced displeasure at having the exact same put into different forms put in front of them before. Specifically the semantic games that the NFL tries to play. People act like Doty has been rogue towards the NFL because people are not very intelligent in general and buy markteting but all he has done is reiterate what the high court has decreed. The NFL has been ordered by the Supreme Court to not act as a trust in respect to player contracts without a CBA. I do not know how to make it any more clear than that.
