    Patriots | Arbitrator dismisses Branch's grievance
    Thu, 7 Sep 2006 12:54:54 -0700

    Updating a previous report, ESPNews reports New England Patriots WR Deion Branch has had his grievance against the team revoked. The grievance, which was filed on Branch's behalf by the NFL Players Association, was dismissed by an arbitrator. Final word on Branch's situation will come from the special master Thursday, Sept. 14.

    The coke-head Michael Irvin is on Dan Patrick's show now, after hearing about the arbiter's decision, saying that the "great" BB lost and is trying to play tough. WTF? Clearly he's on the coke again/still. I don't see how this can be viewed as a positive for Twig.

    REVOKED, not lost? So does this mean that the Patriots succeeded with their claim that the arbitrator never had jurisdiction?

    I don't get why this has to be dragged out until September 14th! I thought this was due to be settled by Saturday. How busy is this "Special Master" and, what, they can't have someone who's a bit more available? Good Lord.

    Legally, "dismissed" and "lost" are not the same thing. However, for all practical intents and purposes, it is the same as losing from Branch's point of view.

    Don't listen to anything Irvin says, for your own good.

    The grievance hearing never took place, only the jurisdiction hearing did (via conference call), so "revoked" in this case seems to be the equivilant of "dismissed with prejudice" (meaning it's been dismissed and can't be refiled).

    There is only one Special Master (that person is named and supervised by the Federal District Court that dealt with the NFL anti-trust case prior to the CBA being signed in the 90's). Decisions of the Master can be appealed to District Court (and ultimately to Circuit Court and even the Supreme Court), so this will now drag out, which is what the Pats want (their hand won't be forced anytime soon).

    And then after that, they have to settle it all with a mean game of rock-paper-scissors (best 2 of 3). Of course, by the time we get to that point, Branch will be in his mid-40's :D

    I might phase it in this instance as "Irvin is not the brightest bulb on the Branch"
