Players union sues NFL in bounty case - Football Wires - MiamiHerald.com Yep.. So much for the standard procedures that the NFLPA agreed to in the CBA. They agree to 2 outside arbitrators, don't like the results, and file a lawsuit anyways.. Pretty sure the CBA precludes them from doing so and that the case should be thrown out. I think it's really pathetic that these guys just can't own up to what they did. Of course, if they did, they'd probably be facing lawsuits themselves and it would also hurt the lawsuits that former players have going on in courts right now.
