It would seem that New Orleans Saints fans aren’t the only ones concerned about bad officiating in the NFL, nor are they alone in taking the matter to court. New York Jets free safety Rontez Miles has filed a lawsuit against game officials for violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act, and in so doing, left him vulnerable to injury.

On Friday, Judge Anita B. Brody of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania entered a brief that could be described as a “tap dance” as she seeks to avoid Third Circuit scrutiny following a petition for writ of mandamus directed at her handling of settlement advances.

Covering the NFL concussion settlement litigation as it plays out, it’s easy to get caught up in the dockets and the numbers. It’s essential to remind ourselves that behind those figures and words are families and personal stories.
One of the individuals who was instrumental in beginning the story was former Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman Mike Webster through his family. Webster, who anchored the Pittsburgh offensive line through a dominant stretch of the middle and late 1970s, passed in 2002. Webster was also one of the first former NFL players to be diagnosed post-mortem with chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). Witnessing most of Webster’s story was his son, Garrett.

“You’ve got to know when to hold ’em; know when to fold ’em…” The iconic song seems to comport with Antonio Brown’s situation. In what realistically was only a couple of weeks ago but now seems like eons, I wrote about how Brown had played his cards perfectly in landing with what is presumed his preferred destination with the New England Patriots and securing a high-dollar contract, following his controversial departures from the Pittsburgh Steelers and Oakland Raiders. He even picked up a new helmet endorsement deal after filing two grievances challenging the requirement to wear only new league-approved helmets.
“Every gambler knows that the secret to survivin’ is knowin’ what to throw away and knowin’ what to keep…”
Apparently after scoring a royal flush with the Patriots
