NFLPA, Players Don’t Want Tagliabue Either!

The players in the New Orleans Saints bounty program succeeded in getting commissioner Roger Goodell to recuse himself.

Now, they want the same for his predecessor.

The NFL Players Association, along with four current and former Saints players, have filed a motion in U. S. District Court in New Orleans, asking that former Commissioner Paul Tagliabue be removed from hearing the appeals of their suspensions and that a neutral arbitrator be appointed by the court.

The NFL said it would oppose any motion to have Tagliabue removed.

Goodell recused himself from the appeal last week and appointed Tagliabue to replace him.

The Players Association says Tagliabue should be removed because of a conflict of interest.
