El Tigere Posted July 28, 2007 Report Share Posted July 28, 2007 One of Odell Thurman's representatives says he plans to file an appeal through the NFL Players Association early next week of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell's decision to extend Thurman's suspension for another year. "We've got the backing of the team and the appeal should be received Monday," said Safarrah Lawson on Friday night, a day after Goodell's decision shelved Thurman for the second straight season. "We feel like he has complied with the guidelines set down by the league. He hasn't had a positive test. He's been clean and they can test him up to 10 times a month." An NFLPA lawyer will try to make the case with Goodell, who hears the appeals of his sanctions. "He's extremely disappointed," said Lawson of Thurman. "He was where he had to be whenever he had to be there." Goodell has a mixed record on his recent appeals. Pacman Jones withdrew his appeal of his one-year suspension for violations of the conduct policy after meeting with the commissioner. Two weeks ago Goodell reduced Chiefs defensive end Jared Allen's four-game suspension to two for two DUIsF U Goodell!!!!!!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
