"New York — Suspended Ohio State running back Maurice Clarett was ruled eligible for the NFL draft Thursday by a federal judge who concluded that the league's rule violates antitrust laws.
U.S. District Judge Shira A. Scheindlin ordered the NFL to let Clarett enter April's draft"
Will this stand? How will this change the face of the NFL? What will this do to the NCAA? And doesn't this make Tagliaboo look like a short sighted dolt for not seeing this coming and letting Fiztgerald in the draft already. Now instead of a poster boy for what anyone would hope their childern would be like be the first young 'un to be declared eligible, we have a illiterate, gambling, thief. Way to stay on top of things MFL.
The NFL specifically held off on Fitzgerald's decision so it would not complicate the judge's decision about Clarrett. In other words, they didn't want to give Clarrett's attourney's any ammunition to use in favor of letting him in. It didn't help, apparently.
