As the football world continues to try to digest the events of the past two days — and, along the way, to decide who should bear the brunt of the ire — we’ll be pumping up Monday’s edition of ProFootballTalk Live, focusing exclusively on the labor situation.
The four-segment show will feature three guests. From the league’s perspective, NFL general counsel Jeff Pash, the primary voice and face of the mediation process that ended last week, will join us in segment 3. For the players, Cardinals kicker Jay Feely makes a return visit to the show in segment 3. Jay understands the issues, and he knows how to succinctly and clearly explain the players’ views.
Finally, sports lawyer David Cornwell will return to the show to talk about some of the legal niceties, including the threshold question that could go a long way toward determining the outcome of the Brady antitrust litigation — whether the NFL will be permitted to argue in court that the decertification of the NFLPA was and is a sham.
If the NFL wins that argument, the case could be over pretty quickly.
The fun starts at 12:00 p.m. ET. We’re committed to stripping out the legalese, but also taking full advantage of the format to go into more detail than most programs will allow.
