Silverman Addresses North American Law Summit in Mexico on MLB, NFL, NBA and NHL Discipline of Players for Off-the-Field Conduct

  • By:Larry Silverman

In early November 2016, I participated in a Panel at the North American Law Summit in Mexico on the rights and limitations of the 4 major sports leagues when they seek to discipline players for off-the-field conduct.  In addition to a discussion of the recent “Deflategate” decision involving Tom Brady, I addressed the Colin Kaepernick case and whether the NFL and other pro sports leagues can discipline players for exercising their “free speech” rights.
