He says he never used and that everyone is stacking the deck against him. That's why he said he'd take things all the way to the federal level since he did nothing wrong.
I don't think so. That 'appeal' is outside of the collectively bargained process. It is solely on his own. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. The potential upside if he were to win that case is that he would be subject to damages for any games that he had been forced to sit out including salary, missed endorsement opportunities etc.
I think the great philosopher, Ron White, said it best, "I had the right to remain silent but I did not have the ability".
Datkiem was a mad genius and way ahead of his time.
