Contrary to what you'll hear from ESPN (oh MAN, do they have a lot to answer for...) and other media outlets that have been shills for the league this whole time, this isn't shocking in the least bit. Not for those who have been following the case from the jump and have read past the headlines.
I didn't know how Judge Berman would rule so I'm not gonna sit here and say I called it...but I was quietly optimistic this would be the result. The transcripts from the two hearings and the transcript from Brady's appeal hearing w/ Goodell (which the NFL didn't want out...) told you which side was right on this.
I know there's no point in having a reasonable back-and-forth at this time. But this really deserves a proper discussion. There's WAY too much misinformation and misdirection that went on for months on this nonsense.
AND LET ME REMIND YOU...the NFL FILED FIRST on this case and chose the court. Could have picked ANY venue they do business in within the States. They CHOSE to go to court in NY, they wanted to avoid Judge Doty in Minnesota, and they still get their **** pushed in.
Colossal loss for Roger the **** boy and the owners.
Talk to y'all after hot take central passes by in here. From all the people that "know what really happened" from listening to sports radio and relying on sexy headlines.
