DeMaurice Smith: 10 Years of Financial Transparency or Decertification

DeMaurice Smith just approached the media, and said that “significant differences remain” between the NFL and NFLPA, and essentially says that the players want 10 years of audited financial records from the NFL, or they will decertify.

The owners have until 5 PM EST to decide whether they want to agree to that, in which case the players association has agreed to another extension.

If the owners decline Smith and the NFLPA’s request for financial information, the union will decertify and try to win the case in court.
