A ruling has been handed down in the StarCaps case, and by the looks of it, the Williams Wall has beaten the NFL and will not be suspended four games.
At least I think that’s what this means.
My ignorance of legal matters – thankfully, I haven’t had much experience with the insides of courtrooms, outside of jury duty – means I am entirely beholden to the opinions and conclusions of others when it comes to such stories. And the first person I go to is PFT’s Mike Florio, because he is a lawyer, and presumably knows what he’s talking about.
And it’s Florio’s conclusion that the Williams Wall will now not be suspended.
The NFL can apparently still appeal, but the consensus seems to be that such an appeal would take so long to wend its way through the legal system, the season would be over before anything was resolved.
Again, it looks like we will have Pat and Kevin in the line-up for the full 16 game schedule. And the playoffs. And of course the Super Bowl.
