Objections Filed in Dryer vs NFL Films Settlement Offer

Jul 15, 2013

Objections against the NFL Films Settlement offer have been arriving at the court in Minnesota. Here are a couple of recent examples.
.
Jed WeaverFormer tight end and Super Bowl champion (New England Patriots 2004) Jed Weaver’s letter to the court objecting to NFL Films settlement:
.
“The NFL has created billions of dollars in personal benefit by using players identity elements such as names, images, signatures and personal information. Players deserve to receive compensation every time these personal elements are used to promote the league, team, owners or coaches in any way just like musicians and actors are paid royalties every time their personal elements are used to benefit financially the party using their personal elements!”
.
His letter also noted that he intends to appear at the final approval hearing September 19, even though he lives in Florida and the hearing will be held in Minnesota.
.
And we found an earlier objection filed by Pete Banaszak (Oakland Raiders 1966 – 1978) which we’ve posted up to Scribd:

    13 years in the NFL and I feel they are treating us like men on a street corner with a tin cup. The only thing we didn’t have was a gun. True smashmouth football. If folks want to see the real deal, you have to go back to the ’40s through the ’90s. If the rules they have today had been the same back in those eras, some of the men would still be playing today. Watch the real game on the old NFL Films.

    I VOTE NO…
