NFLPA Moves To Prevent Tagliabue From Hearing Appeals, Sends Personal Letter
Published October 24, 2012
LETTER OF THE LAW: USA TODAY's Mike Garafolo cites a source as saying that the NFLPA has "sent a letter to former NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue, asking him to clarify why he is an objective, impartial arbitrator in ruling on the appeals of three of the four implicated players." The source said that the union "has not yet asked Tagliabue to recuse himself as Roger Goodell's appointed arbitrator" (USA TODAY, 10/24).
