"It doesn’t foreclose the players from filing a motion to transfer the case from Judge Nelson to Judge David Doty. Though neither we nor NFL general counsel Jeff Pash (one of the guests on today’s supersized PFT Live) are currently aware of any precedent that would allow a case to be transferred within the same district based on a given judge’s knowledge of the process, nothing stops the players from trying.
That said, the players don’t seem to be concerned about Judge Nelson’s handling of the case. “That’s not an issue,” Saints quarterback Drew Brees said during a Monday conference call arranged by the NFLPA*. “That’s something that the owners seem to be very focused on. For us it about the facts and the law.”
The fact that Judge Nelson was nominated by President Obama and appointed by a Congress controlled by Democrats is another reason for the players to not be complaining."
It's funny how "facts and law" have nothing to do when some judges get to exercise their power over others. I do have more confidence a that a conservative judge would A LITTLE more fair, than liberal. I can predict right now the players will get everything they want (and then some).
