    Goodell has appointed former New Jersey Attorney General Peter C. Harvey to hear the NFL's appeal. He previously heard the appeal of Dallas Cowboy running back Ezekiel Elliott.

      I was not fully aware of the strange appeal process when I posted that. I dumbfounded that the players association would agree to this but it appears as tho it this is n the agreement the NFL has worth the players, I would think this changes in the next contract.

        Watson should negotiate with the NFL before Harvey lowers the hammer on him.

          So, are Watson and the NFL negotiating before Harvey drops the hammer on Watson?

            Time is running out on Watson. He needs to negotiate a settlement with the NFL before Harvey lowers the boom on him.

              I am expecting Harvey's decision by Friday, August 12th, at the latest. Probably. a one year suspension starting immediately, which would stop Watson from playing in the preseason will be the decision.

                Watson has just said that he would accept an eight game suspension in addition to a five million dollar fine. If he is attempting to negotiate a settlement at this late date, he should make a more realistic settlement like twelve games plus a fine. The NFL would never accept his minuscule offer. Too little, too late!

                  Harvey did not release his decision Friday. This is probably to give Watson and the NFL time to negotiate a settlement. I do not expect a settlement mainly because Watson has shown no sign that he is seriously negotiating. I think that it is time for Harvey to drip the hammer on Watson and suspensionpend him for a full year. In my opinion, a serious negotiation by Watson would be willing to accept a twelve game suspension.

                    Are we going to get a settlement? A settlement would be in the best interests of both Watson and the NFL. If a settlement occurs, it should be in the range of ten to twelve games.

                      Harvey should issue a deadline to Watson and the NFL saying that if they cannot settle by Thursday then he will impose hie decision on Watson's suspension on Friday.

                        By rule, the appeal is supposed to be expedited. I think that the reason that it has not been expedited has to be because Watson and the NFL are trying to negotiate a settlement. Harvey should impose the suspension if a settlement has not been agreed to by noon on Friday, August 19, 2022.

                          I have seen a report that Watson and the NFL are close to a settlement.

                            Maybe, they will agree on ten or eleven games in addition to a fine.

                              If a settlement is reached, I think that it would entail a fine of at least five million dollars plus an eleven game suspension. Eleven games amount to about 64.7% of the season that the NFL was pushing for. I just don't see the NFL caving for less than that.
