NFL Players Want $707 Million

Posted: May 12, 2011 in Robert J. Romano

NFL players today asked U.S. District Judge David Doty for at least $707M in damages “stemming from a dispute with the league over $4 billion in broadcast revenue.” Doty took the request under advisement after a two-hour hearing that included “arguments from attorneys for the league and the players.” The judge began the hearing by “chiding both sides for their inability to reach” a new CBA. Doty: “I’ll be honest with you. I didn’t think we would have this hearing, and I’m a bit disappointed we are having it.” None of the team owners or “high-ranking league officials” attended the hearing (AP, 5/12)
