Default NFLPA accused of collusion; McNair, Brown, Bruener directly involved in allegations

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200....ap/index.html
Quote:
In court documents filed in District of Columbia Superior Court on Thursday, Moran said she provided investigators evidence that former NFLPA president Troy Vincent and other union members met with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and Houston Texans owner Bob McNair, allegedly to provide the league access to confidential union information.

She alleged that NFLPA executive committee member Mark Bruener and Texans player representative Kris Brown also attended the meetings, which she claims were not authorized by or reported to the union. She alleged the meetings were a bid by union members to gain influence with the NFL while providing "owners a toehold in the NFLPA."

Moran also alleges NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith met with a Department of Justice official in a bid to stop the investigation in April, weeks after Smith was elected to the job to succeed Gene Upshaw, who died a year ago. Smith took over in mid-March, weeks after Moran became involved in the investigation.

Very sensational, but no teeth. I am still not quite sure what the offense is, other than a dismissed employee.

Well, if you read further, it looks like a former disgruntled employee has an ax to grind.

Default McNair accused of secret meetings

According to espn.com...

Quote:
Houston Texans owner Bob McNair is denying allegations that he participated in secret meetings to discuss NFL labor talks.

The allegations were in a wrongful termination lawsuit filed against the NFL Players Association last week by union employee Mary Moran.

She says she was a confidential informant for the Labor Department and gave investigators evidence that former NFLPA president Troy Vincent and other union members met with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and McNair. The meetings were allegedly to provide the league access to confidential union information.

In a statement issued through a Texans spokesman, McNair says the allegations are "without merit" and "false."
Interesting...

Not that anything is IMpossible, but why only McNair, not other owners? Does he have some 'insider union link' that other owners wouldn't?

Quote:
The discrimination lawsuit filed by long-time NFLPA human resources director Mary Moran against her former employer continues to make waves, as court documents from the case have revealed that union leaders held secret meetings with league officials to discuss labor issues, which has resulted in the union being a target of a federal investigation in the existence of attempted collusion.

In court documents filed in District of Columbia Superior Court on Thursday, Moran said she provided investigators evidence that former NFLPA president Troy Vincent and other union members met with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and Houston Texans owner Bob McNair, allegedly to provide the league access to confidential union information.

She alleged that NFLPA executive committee member Mark Bruener and Texans player representative Kris Brown also attended the meetings, which she claims were not authorized by or reported to the union. She alleged the meetings were a bid by union members to gain influence with the NFL while providing "owners a toehold in the NFLPA."

Vincent (pictured) had already landed in hot water with the union due to a December 2007 e-mail he sent that included personal data about 41 NFL agents, each representing 15 or more clients in the league, to his business partner Mark Mangum. Now he's alleged by Moran to have been party to an attempted coup of DeMaurice Smith, the man who beat him out for the job of executive director of NFLPA earlier this year. Of course, Moran, daughter of Rep. Jim Moran (D - Va.), is also accusing Smith of meeting with a Department of Justice official in a bid to end the investigation of the union, so if she has her way, no one gets out of this clean.

There was damning video evidence of contact drills during OTAs, too.

And what happened with that situation?
