If that is the case, it illustrates amazing wishful thinking on behalf of the NFL. As long as a week ago the judge who rendered this ruling had eluded to the fact that she would be handing down a note worthy decision. Dis-allowing Clarett to go into the draft would not be news, letting him in would be note worthy. The NFL had plenty of tiem to take the initiative but kept it's head in the sand and concentrated on end zone celebrations. More evidence that football is the best sport ever, that it could thrive under such moronic leadership.
