NFL | Six former players suing league, union

The Associated Press reports six current and former players are suing the NFL and its union are seeking to recoup $20 million they lost in an alleged fraud scheme. A judge denied a motion to dismiss, meaning the case in federal court in Atlanta can proceed. No trial date has been set. The NFL and the NFLPA contended the lawsuit filed last June should be thrown out partly because under the league's CBA, players are solely responsible for their own finances. The players listed as plaintiffs are former Denver Broncos DB Steve Atwater, former NFL CB Ray Crockett, former Houston Oilers LB Al Smith, former NFL DB Blaine Bishop, free agent LB Carlos Emmons (Giants) and former NFL DL Clyde Simmons.
