Jetfan13 Posted March 21, 2009 Share Posted March 21, 2009 Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Daily News reports new NFLPA Executive Director DeMaurice Smith during his pre-election presentation to players last week, and again in his first post-election news conference, brought up the possibility of asking Congress to examine the league's tax-exempt status and its limited antitrust exemption if the owners don't bargain in good faith in upcoming negotiations for a new labor deal. The owners are smart enough to know this was no idle threat. Smith is a partner in the powerful Washington law firm Patton Boggs and has ties to the Obama administration. He once worked with new U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. This doesn't sound good at all Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
