Retirees Suing NFLPA Over CBA To File Appeal This Morning

“The unfortunate fact for Plaintiffs is that they – having retired and thus no longer being able to offer or withhold their services to the League – simply lacked any negotiating leverage to obtain new and additional benefits beyond what they already had obtained while still active players,” wrote Nelson, who ruled to overturn the lockout 13 months ago, before two weeks later getting roundly overturned by the 8th Circuit. Hausfeld’s main point is the NFLPA was not a union at the time it struck a deal, and sidelined the retirees, a point Nelson does not dispute. As a result, he contends the NFLPA had no authority to step in and negotiate the retiree benefits with the NFL.
