MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The NFL has rejected a law firm's request for a conflict-of-interest waiver to represent a new group of players seeking to join the antitrust fight against the league.
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello says the league has notified Cafferty Faucher of Philadelphia of the denial. Aiello said it would be inappropriate to let the firm move forward with the claim while one of the partners also represents the league in music licensing for shows on NFL Network and NFL Films.
The NFL also argued in a court filing that players don't deserve millions of dollars in damages after a judge ruled against the league in a fight over $4 billion in broadcast rights revenue.
