Roger Goodell’s Wicked Web

Why all the sad and angry faces my fellow Patriots fan friends? While Roger Goodell won the legal battle in Deflategate and forced Tom Brady to serve a four-game suspension, he lost the war! “Public confidence in the integrity of the game of professional football” is at an all-time low, and this is in large part due to Deflategate, and now the short-lived nontroversy of Deflategate 2.0. What an irony. The “crime” of undermining confidence in the integrity of the game which he tried to pin on Tom Brady backfired and Goodell is now the poster child for that brand of “integrity.”.
Tom Brady has shown he’s a better man than Roger Goodell by taking the high road and simply going out and playing the best football of his career at age 39. He’s scorching the record books. His actions are not those of a loser, but a winner!

Impact: Peterson, Brady, and the Future of the CBA

Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away, impartiality and fairness were considered an integral part of the judiciary. Perhaps this is still true in the criminal justice system, but apparently not so in the alternative universe of labor, collective bargaining and subsequent arbitrations.

The Demise of Deflategate?

Why it may be too early for a eulogy… by Sheilla Dingus July 18, 2016 “As happens sometimes, a moment settled and hovered and remained for much more than a moment. And sound stopped and movement stopped for much, much more than a moment.” – John Steinbeck, Of Mice and Men Thus was the “end” …

Sound of Silence

by Sheilla Dingus July 6, 2016 As we listen to the sound of silence from the Second Circuit I decided to do a bit of digging in the court dockets to see if I could find a plausible reason.  My first thought was perhaps the circuit is overloaded with cases, and while they are busy, …
