Tagliabue's Affidavit Addresses "Smash For Cash" Ahead Of Ruling
Published December 10, 2012
In a Nov. 5 letter turning down the recusal request, and filed publicly in Louisiana court for the first time this afternoon, Tagliabue wrote until his counsel asked him on Oct. 28, 2012, to watch the ESPN segment, he had never heard of it. The feature refers to an NFL spokesperson saying the league had no problem with it, but Tagliabue wrote he does not know who that person was. The letter and affidavit sheds some light on how Tagliabue might rule.
