Someone correct me if I'm wrong but if I'm reading in between the lines here does this mean Goodell no longer has the responsibility of suspending players? According to the ruling it seems like that would go to Special Master Burbank. I don't see why this wouldn't apply to all cases? They ruled he has the authority to prove the case that "x" player committed an action that hurt the game but he doesn't have the authority to punish.
Like I said earlier according to the CBA the league has to formally notify the players and the teams and they have X amount of days to appeal it etc. The league dropped the ball and didn't follow the rules to the letter. And as a result they screwed themselves. Kinda like letting a killer go because he was never read his rights. The coaches don't have a CBA so you won't see Sean Payton back on the sidelines this year.
