Collusion suit directly resulted from Redskins, Cowboys cap penalties | ProFootballTalk
The lawsuit filed Wednesday by the NFLPA against the NFL for collusion in the uncapped year technically is framed as a petition to "reopen and enforce" the agreement that finally settled the Reggie White litigation.

Full PDF of NFLPA Collusion Claim vs. NFL
1. This proceeding arises from a conspiracy. Pursuant to the SSA, the NFL and the Owners explicitly agreed that the 2010 season would not be subject to a salary cap and that they would not engage in any prohibited collusion or circumvention of the SSA. The NFL and the Owners, however, engaged in a secret, recently-revealed collusive and....

"Roger's standing with the league is fine, don't mistake that," said one owner, who declined to be identified. "I don't want to say this stuff is minutia. That's not it. But it's also not all his doing and nothing he has done is out of step with what any of us believe should be done.

"I was never even alerted about it," he said. "I had a problem with that. That was at a time when I was supposed to be with my family, spending time with my newborn daughter so I was disappointed in that. Since that time, again, the idea of being on a public trial is a difficult situation to be in. It's our word against theirs and that's frustrating, but the reality is that I know what actually happened and that's why I can stand by those statements."

Jonathan Vilma's lawsuit could force NFL, Roger Goodell transparency - NFL News | FOX Sports on MSN
Maybe, the league did this to save money, or to protect the brand. Or maybe, it did this to protect itself legally, which is ironic because lawsuits are exactly what the NFL is getting now.

Daily Special, May 23, 2012 - Who Dat Social Club
Goodell actually thinks the appeals process is the proper time to finally "hear from each other." He also thinks the entire process is essentially a "popularity contest" which he isn’t concerned with winning. In other words, he disdains the silly public and its silly opinions, and by God he’ll rule this island if he has to do so from a throne of splintered bones! Sorry, Roger got carried away there.

Although he did not make the link in his comments, Goodell's discipline comes at a time the league is facing increasing lawsuits by former players who claim the NFL was not diligent in protecting player safety. Legal experts have noted from the outset of the bounty case in March that the league would likely come down hard on the Saints, in part, because of the legal threat the NFL faces.
