When you look at the facts of the Terrelle Pryor case, it is hard to understand why none of the parties involved wanted to appeal the ruling.
You would think that one of the following would push for the appeal:
- his agent Drew Rosenhaus
- his attorney David Cornwell
- the Oakland Raiders
- the NFLPA
The problem with the situation is well outlined by Andrew Brandt. The possibility of setting dangerous precedent in this arena is significant and the fact that Pryor will not be able to practice with the Raiders during the suspension should have ensured that the team wanted an appeal that would allow him to learn during that time frame.
