Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

A couple of tipsters have pointed us to an anonymous question printed in the October issue of the New York State Bar Association Journal.

When "Tim" spoke with one of the league employees a few weeks later, he heard the league had another video of the entire incident, but "was directed by his superiors never to discuss the existence of the second tape because of the public relations fallout that would almost certainly ensue if the full video ended up in the public realm—as well as the potential legal ramifications for the League."
