Renowned gambling attorney Daniel Wallach out of Florida has been all over the NFL's intent to appeal Cleveland Brown quarterback Deshaun Watson's six-game suspension.  The league wants him out longer.


The news of a reduced punishment had sportsbooks slashing their futures odds on the Browns.  Half the games Watson will sit out are against teams among the biggest longshots to win the Super Bowl.

Wallach tweeted:

"NFLPA must either win the race to the courthouse (this time) or invoke the bad faith exception to the first-filed rule in order to secure a Delaware venue for Deshaun Watson."

Last week Wallach tweeted:

"Any claim of irreparable harm — necessary for a Week One TRO —has already been waived by virtue of the NFLPA’s failure to appeal the 6-game suspension handed down by Sue Robinson. A fait accompli."

He also noted: “While some who should know better continue to insist that Watson’s failure to play in 2021 had nothing to do with his off-field situation, the simple truth is that, if he wasn’t dealing with civil cases and/or criminal investigations, he would have played in 2021.”

The NFL has appealed the punishment decision by Judge Robinson. Commissioner Goodell decided to use a neutral party handle the appeal and selected Peter Harvey, who is the former New Jersey attorney general. However, Harvey has previously been an arbitrator for the league, was on the NFL advisory committee, and helped create the language of the personal conduct policy. The reasoning for Judge Robinson's decision and the number of games is the issue at hand.

Dan Wallach gives three reason why Watson won't get a TRO.  Watch below.
