The bounty case is over, for the most part. Here was the process, the process was if you remember, the league started out on a P. It turns out that while they talked about dozes of players by the time we got through the process it was a smaller number of players.
Arbitrator Stephen Burbank determined the operative language of the labor deal to be ambiguous, which means that the language fairly can be interpreted in different ways. If there IS an actual locker-room issue that needs to be addressed, it will be put into the rear-view mirror in no time.
