The NFL appeals, and the player then appeals to Goodell. While that might be the final word as far as the NFL was concerned, Watson's team can take it to federal court. I don't think that goes well for the NFL in this case.Not totally sure, but I did read that the appeal has to be carried out quickly and that ruling will be binding, per CBA. I would think, though, since Watson is not the one appealing that he wouldn't be able to play, while the appeal is happening...at best, the current 6 games would apply, regardless.
This isn't me positing. I heard how the process works on sports radio.
