NFLPA Files Court Papers Seeking Injunction Over TV Revenues
Published April 1, 2011
The “main thing the players are seeking is to stop them from accessing the money" from the television contracts that would have been paid even if no games are played, said Jeffrey Kessler, counsel for the players in that case, which is Reggie White v the NFL. "It's another way to make it less likely for the lockout to continue so the players can play and that is the No. 1 objective," Kessler said. NFL Senior VP/Communications Greg Aiello responded to the filing in an e-mail, saying, "It is part of the process in the case. Our response is due April 21."
