DeMaurice Smith On How Well He Would Handle The Ongoing High Profile Grievances In The NFL

There has been numerous issues which has surrounded the National Football League of late, from concussions to the deflated balls, the NFL, especially the league’s head Roger Goodell has a number issues which it has to address. How well Goodell and company have been able to manage all these is yet to be known. But, according to DeMaurice Smith, the director of the National Football League Players Association, the league is quickly running out of option.

When asked by ESPN.com, what he will do in an event that he was the one responsible for handling the ongoing high profile issues between players and the league, DeMaurice said that, “The media and fans tend to deal with each of these issues episodically, they tend to pay attention on whether or not its Peterson or was it Brady.” According to Smith this is wrong and he looks at it “existentially, almost philosophically and not the other way round. Our work is simple and that is to defend our players. For us to be able to do this effectively we tend to wrap our hands around the players in the NFL, we also wrap our hands around CBA, and in an event that we believe that the rights of our players have been violated, we will act accordingly. So you won’t see us debating on whether or not we will be defending Greg Hardy the same way that we will be defending Brady.”
