    It is weak grounds for an appeal if it is not asked for up front.

    It’s not just the ruling. It’s everything she outlined and how she came to the conclusion. She practically told the commissioner do whatever you please, you earned this.

    That was my original impression but then I changed my mind after doing some research. Check out my post on precisely how ingrained her husband's firm is in pro sports (assuming it is indeed her husband which I don't think we've confirmed yet but it sure seems like he is).

    Every economic system breeds corruption and exploitation.

    Sounds good like I post before you must've just been born if you don't understand how this looks. That is like saying someone getting suspended for some type of ist act wouldn't look like they are that particular ist. Come on you know how that will look to many.

    Speaks to how there is a lack of monitoring on judicial authority if there is a conflict that apparent and she didn't refuse herself.

    There is still an economic interest in having your prior work validated by a court of law.

    Honestly Trouty,

    I doubt SCOTUS would even take the case. There is too much historical background on how the NFL and the Union work. Besides, nobody wants that. The Owners do not want to go to SCOTUS, the NFLPA, if they are smart, would not want to see this happen and SCOTUS doesn't want it.

    I think that eventually, this will die a slow death and that will be that. The best we can hope for, IMO, is that Zeke learns from all of this.

    I think the rule that applies to mandatory judicial refusal involving an economic interest involves an economic interest in the case at bar.

    I've often pondered those exact sentiments,,, the constant fusillade of yellow casing-liner's dictating the tempo,direction and outcomes of games(not just Cowboy games:eek:) is beyond blatanto_O

    All that is necessary to warrant a judicial recusal is the possible appearance of impropriety: not actual impropriety, not the appearance of impropriety, just the possible appearance of such to a reasonable person. Of course, the NFLPA's lawyers had ample time to raise this issue and failed, even if the judge should have taken it upon herself to defer.

    Human nature breeds corruption and exploitation. You are absolutely right that corruption and backroom deals are common in this country, but visit any country that was under the Soviet Union and you will see much, much worse behavior.
