Months ago, NFLPA executive director candidate Sean Gilbert made it known that, if he wins the election, he’ll pursue a collusion case that could lead to the premature termination of the CBA. Since then, Gilbert has refused to elaborate on the factual basis for his argument and the specific provision of the labor deal that was violated.
Per a league source with knowledge of the situation, Gilbert will disclose all details to the NFLPA player representatives next weekend, when he makes his presentation in advance of the election.
The catch is that, once Gilbert discloses the factual basis to the player representatives, the clock for the filing of a collusion case will begin to tick. Which means that, regardless of who wins the election, any collusion case based on the facts Gilbert discloses will have to be filed within 90 days.
