NFLPA: League hasn’t properly shared revenue funds
AP Sports Writer
NEW YORK (AP) – The NFL Players Association says the league has not shared as much supplemental revenue with its lower-income teams as it is supposed to.
Jeffrey Kessler is the outside counsel for the NFLPA. He says that a filing Tuesday by the union is a result of the NFLPA concluding that the league violated the terms of the collective bargaining agreement and the supplemental revenue sharing plan. Kessler says the union discovered that there was a shortfall in the amount of supplemental revenue sharing from 2006-08, possibly in the tens of millions of dollars.
League spokesman Greg Aiello says the NFL has abided by the system, which hasn’t hurt any low-revenue teams.
The SportsBusiness Journal first reported the story Tuesday.
