i'm not sure he doesn't.

in the NFL's own rules, there's verbiage on how to over-turn or replay games. 

And I bet he thinks he does because if he doesn't, the publicity stunt could ruin his career. Good news is that the primary leverage can only last a few more days

 

Exactly. If this by some miracle was overturned what's next? Every single team would have a legit gripe, not just NO. Do you go back and overturn every bad call?? Not happening. Let him get his 15 minutes of Fame and sail off into the sunset.

again, I don't think the lawyer's goal is to over-turn anything. He's using this as leverage.

I'm in agreement. It's a lot of nothing.

It won't go anywhere. You won't hear a peep about it in a couple weeks, crickets.

No doubt. It's a brilliant move on his behalf  Now everyone knows his name. He knows that he doesn't have a legal leg to stand on l.

Anybody who wants to file frivolous lawsuits knows they should call this guy, anybody looking for a serious attorney can ignore him. 

 

I just laugh at anybody who takes him seriously or thinks he has a "leg to stand on" as they say.  And there is no leverage, the people in the NFL offices and their battalion of lawyers are just laughing.

There won't be a hearing. The NFL will throw so much money and attorneys at them that they'll be lucky to get a hearing at all. They'll tie it up for years. 

i don't think that's how hearings work?

FWIW https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.forbes.com/sites/ericmacramalla/2019/01/23/legal-look-saints-lawsuit-against-nfl-for-blown-call-has-no-chance/amp/

 

Also it sounds like the hearing for Monday won't happen since it goes to federal court. The parties are out of state and implications >5 million so goes to federal, not state court.

The only good thing this lawsuit will do is bring more pressure on the league to take action. I wouldn't say the suit is frivolous because the fans do pay to expect fair play. But I think you have to clearly show that the league or refs had malice intent and I don't see how that is possible. Fans do deserve better though, so I'm not going to argue over anyone trying to take measures to force the NFL's hand. They have been way too arrogant, way too long and to completely ignore the fans in this matter is just a big slap in the face. One of many in a long line of debacles that I think every fan should get behind because we all deserve better.

I don't think it has to get anywhere near malice level. I think they only have to show negligence. Is the NFL doing enough? If not, lawsuit moves forward. But the lawyer could settle (since he won't likely win) with part of the settlement making the games better...

I don't know maybe, but If I was the NFL I'd be more concerned with angry owners & fans rather than some hack Louisiana attorney. There's enough heat already that the NFL will have to make some changes going forward. I don't think this hearing has any bearing on anything.

The NFL would never settle.  The suit probably gets dismissed during the hearing anyway.
