(Oh – and what was that about your Grandmother, Jeffrey Kessler?!! Read his quote way back HERE.)
Today, Herb Adderley was in a press conference confirming that the lawsuit was finally officially settled between the retired players and the NFLPA/Players Inc. for $26.25 million of the $28.1 million awarded from the trial in November 2008. It indicates that the NFLPA may have realized the high risk involved in pursuing an appeal. It may also have been a sign of a new direction in the NFLPA leadership as well as a clear denunciation of Jeffrey Kessler’s years of a combative style of litigation.
The retired players have been solidly proven to be right in their stand and while their Union – the NFLPA leadership – was clearly proven wrong in what they did in misrepresenting and defrauding them. Bernie Parrish’s years of tireless work in leading to this conclusion is finally vindicated.
