In Varney's article he said that Ginsberg, after seeing the scant evidence, could not comment on what Vilma may do Monday. And Florio speculated that Vilma may refuse to participate in any discussion with Goodell unless he's provided with specific evidence on the allegations made against him.
So it might be that Ginsberg is indeed contemplating measures to formally call into question the validity of the process. And he's only representing Vilma, so we haven't had any indications on what the other three players are planning. But the clues are there that some kind of dissent is coming.
Chuck - if the appeals process really turns out to be the sham that it seems, would labor law allow the PA to take the league to court over this? I mean if the PA can reasonably show that the league did not follow the procedures outlined in the CBA there would have to be some mechanism to compel the league to comply. Would court have to await an arbitration ruling?
