Harry R. Weber, of The Associated Press, reports the National Football League Players Association is countersuing six former and current players including Steve Atwater, Ray Crockett, Al Smith, Blaine Bishop, Carlos Emmons and Clyde Simmons, who are seeking to hold the union and NFL liable for millions of dollars they lost in an alleged fraud scheme. The players filed a lawsuit last June against the league and the union for over $20 million they lost by investing their money with a hedge fund manager that they say was endorsed by the union. Kirk Wright, the fund manager of International Management Associates, was arrested in Florida last May on federal fraud charges and is awaiting trial. According to authorities, Wright and his company collected as much as $185 million from at least 500 investors since 1997 and used false statements and documents in misleading investors to believe the value of those investments was increasing. The majority of that money is now missing. The countersuit claims the players violated a provision in union regulations that says the union does not endorse any of its registered financial advisers and is not responsible for the skill, honesty or competence of any registered adviser.

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.
