Different situation, coaches don't have the same protections that the players get through the CBA
They also should have let him question Pash (since he was co-investigator on the Wells Report) and gave him access to the investigation reports
It's honestly bizarre how sloppy the NFL...
from the judges ruling - http://cdn-jpg.si.com/sites/default/files/download/tom-brady-suspension-overturned-ruling.pdf
page 20 and on is where the judge addresses the issue of notice, if you...
Also that the NFL has to allow players access to key witness's and such during their appeal
you are absolutely correct that the ruling didn't prove guilt or innocence - the reason the suspension...
Yeah. A lot of that was due to reporting around the case I think - a lot of articles came out that only talked about the 25K part and ignored the "not limited to"
the ultimate point is that the policy was not given to the players, therefore it doesn't equate to notice of potential punishments
The point was that that comes from the NFL's Game Operation Manual, which Norm seems to be confused about
And this policy, as previously stated, was not given to the players
— From the NFL Game Operations Manual
another source, for good measure
page 33 wells report
that policy, among others that the NFL used to justify the suspension, were not collectively bargained
not in the CBA = no notification
thanks mr lawyer
Domestic abuse is specifically listed in the personal conduct/conduct detrimental policy
from the NFLPA's website
that's the "notification of penalties" part
Also IIRC there's no actual way for a team to appeal
incorrect, players can still be suspended assuming that the NFL follows the procedures agreed upon in the CBA (notification of penalties, allow access to witnesses, etc, etc)
What part of the CBA is that, exactly?

Roger Goodell's suspensions have a history of being reduced after external review.
Pretty crazy how nearly every time...
