    Because PR was against the Patriots and Goodell and the NFL had to make it look like they weren’t favoring he Patriots.

    You think Bellichek wasn’t deflating footballs and had no idea? The whole organization? Since when has Bellichek gotten suspended like Sean Payton? Very little attention was paid to the FUMBLING rate and balls, just Brady preferring them as if WRs don’t touch those same footballs and hold on to them..

    Bellichek was getting grilled when it first happened regarding his legacy and Spygate..

    Did I say that?

    You think that's what I'm talking about?

    I don't believe that's correct. If her husband argued the case, yes.
    If his law firm, that handles hundreds of legal cases, has an attorney other than her husband argue the case, then no.

    Like I said.... show me one team that gets screwed and I'll show you 31 teams who don't care (or approve).

    The above is the exact type of thing I am talking about.

    Simply showing conflict of interest is not enough. You have to prove that her thought process was impacted by said relationship. The person in question is an insurance partner with the firm, not on the financial/legal side that would have worked on the CBA. It's actually fairly difficult to prove conflict of interest.

    Actually quite a few people in the media have been treating this differently and fans of other teams as well.. normally they blast the accused when it comes to DV, but Zeke has been getting quite a few people on his side.

    Whether it’s as you say a bunch of fans of other teams not caring, your right. But a lot of that is based on perception as related by the media anyways. If they knew the full facts many of them would turn..

    I am surprised he didn't get the injunction continued but I am not even remotely surprised by the outcome. If you read the filings, he was making identical arguments as Brady. Once CA5 tossed him to the 2nd district, it was really just a matter of time.

    I am surprised (well, not really--outraged maybe) that this particular judge came to a totally different conclusion than the two previous judges on the basis of the same facts after a few hours of deliberation, when issuing the injunction would not have harmed anyone's interests. I am flabbergasted that Zeke has to argue this three times due to blatant forum shopping and the NFL gets what they want the third time. The whole thing reeks.

    If he's a partner, that's a bit different.
    If he's just an attorney, then, no, it's not a conflict of interest because the law firm handles hundreds of cases so you can't pinpoint merely one case to highlight bias.

    If you think PR across the league favors the Cowboys here, well I have some bad news for you..... There is nobody upset about this ruling outside Dallas.

    Being guilty of DV under the NFL PC Policy is not necessarily being called a “ women beater” as might be defined under the criminal justice system.

    Basically the decision by the commissioners office is there was enough evidence to determine a violation which has a wide latitude.

    I don’t assume he’s a women beater. I only assume there was enough evidence something happened to come to a conclusion it violated the policy.

    I am well versed in judicial ethics, thanks. She should have recused herself. I would have. Its up to her, but this just reeks of hubris and stupidity.

    Goodell MUST go! The players also need a better CBA. It's absurd that the league can suspend a player with no proof he did anything wrong. Now if any player's girlfriend gets pissed off at him, she can just make up a story about him supposedly assaulting her and get him suspended.

    Thanks for letting the league be run by feminazis instead of running it yourself, Goodell.

    Come back, Rozelle!

    Judges see the world through a particular perspective as we all do. Just witness the 2000 election controversy between Al Gore and George Bush.

    He’s a partner... financial interests in the ruling can be tied to him.

    So what principle do you cite to support your opinion she should have refused herself?

    This explains nothing, IMO.

    With what we know there is no way she could've come to this conclusion legitimately, ethically or morally.
