NFL CBA and Reasonable Expectations

This morning Jeff Saturday, a part of the NFLPA negotiating team for the NFL CBA pointed out the root cause of the constant disputes with Roger Goodell.  The NFLPA’s reasonable expectation when it signed the CBA was that the punishments meted out under the personal conduct policy would be in line with past precedent as would the investigative process which had always honored privacy rights and due process.The NFL believes that it has unlimited and unfettered power to impose whatever punishments it wishes while defining offenses in its sole and exclusive judgment.  It also seems to believe that by signing the CBA, the NFLPA waived all personal and due process rights of the players.  Courts, sponsors and fans must now decide who is right – the totalitarian regime of Roger Goodell or the rule of law.
