Full Text of Decision.

NFL v. NFL Players Association, 15-2801 (L)

Full Text of Decision

“Our role is not to determine for ourselves whether Brady participated in a scheme to deflate footballs or whether the suspension imposed by the Commissioner should have been for three games or five games or none at all,” Parker said in NFL v. NFL Players Association, 15-2801 (L). “Nor is it our role to second-guess the arbitrator’s procedural rulings. Our obligation is limited to determining whether the arbitration proceedings and award met the minimum legal standards established by the Labor Management Relations Act, 29 U.S.C. §141 et seq.

“Our review of the record yields the firm conclusion that the Commissioner properly exercised his broad discretion to resolve an intramural controversy between the League and a player,” he continued.

In dissent, Judge Robert Katzmann said “the lack of any meaningful explanation in the commissioner’s final written decision convinces me that the commissioner was doling out his own brand of industrial justice.

“It is ironic that a process designed to ensure fairness to all players has been used unfairly against one player,” he added.
