Default Judge sides with retired players

Quote:
SAN FRANCISCO -- A federal judge has upheld a jury award of $28.1 million US to retired football players who sued the NFL Players' Association for allegedly failing to properly market their images.

The judge said yesterday there was sufficient evidence presented at trial in November that the union actively sought to cut out the retired players from lucrative contracts for the benefit of current players.

The jury said the union owed the retirees $7.1 million in actual damages for failing to include them in lucrative marketing deals with Electronic Arts Inc., the maker of the popular Madden NFL video games. The jury also ordered $21 million punitive damages.

Default Re: Judge sides with retired players

Rock on. This is why I can't get more McFarlane NFL "Legends" action figures and instead get "Brett Favre IX" which ends up being nothing more than a repaint of "Brett Favre VI" now in a Jets uniform.

Maybe now we can see some of these guys in merchandise that us old timers want to buy.
