MINNEAPOLIS -- NFL commissioner Roger Goodells power to freely punish Adrian Peterson has prevailed, two seasons after the Minnesota Vikings running back became embroiled in a child-abuse case that heightened the dispute over league discipline. Saucony Mens Shadow Original .A three-judge panel of the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Thursday that an NFL arbitrator acted within his rights by upholding Goodells six-game suspension of Peterson in 2014. That suspension was handed down under the personal conduct policy that the league toughened up following a?brutal act of caught-on-video domestic violence committed by Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice.The 8th Circuit ruling overrode the decision issued Feb. 26, 2015, by U.S. District Judge David Doty that found NFL arbitrator Harold Henderson overreached his authority in handling the NFL Players Associations appeal on behalf of Peterson.Appellate judges James Loken, Diana Murphy and Steven Colloton heard the leagues arguments Oct. 19, 2015.The dispositive question is whether the arbitrator was at least arguably construing or applying the contract, including the law of the shop, Colloton wrote for the panel. The arbitrator here undoubtedly construed the Rice decision in reaching his decision. Disagreement with his conclusion is not a valid ground on which to vacate the decision.The NFL had no immediate comment on the ruling, issued about 27 months after the injuries to Petersons then-4-year-old son were reported.League sources told ESPNs Ed Werder that Peterson must pay the NFL the value of three game checks from the 2014 season, which is just under $2.1 million.The NFLPA issued a statement of resignation.Our union pursues all claims because we believe in due process, fundamental fairness and in the spirit of collective bargaining agreements. While the NFLPA disagrees with the decision, we accept this loss, the union said. When negotiation or collective bargaining fails to resolve our differences, we will always fight and pursue every recourse for our players rights.The leagues primary argument was that a judge should not be able to intervene in a collectively bargained labor dispute like this, and the appeals court agreed.Doty had sided with the NFLPAs contention that the six-game ban, announced by Goodell on Aug. 28, 2014, couldnt apply retroactively to Peterson since the boy was hurt more than three months before the enhancement of the personal conduct policy. Peterson was indicted on Sept. 12, 2014, by a grand jury in Texas after it found him guilty of disciplining the boy with a tree branch. He eventually pleaded no contest to misdemeanor reckless assault.Peterson was on paid leave for nine games. Then Goodell issued the unpaid suspension with six games left on Minnesotas schedule. The league collected half of the roughly $4.1 million that Peterson was to forfeit, the proration over a 17-week basis from his $11.75 million salary for that year. It held off on the remaining three-game fine, pending the NFLPAs petition to Doty to vacate Hendersons decision.After playing in only one game in 2014, Peterson returned to the Vikings last year and led the league in rushing with 1,485 yards. The dispute in front of the 8th Circuit, then, boiled down to power, principle and a few million dollars.The league has been handed its share of court losses to the union, but not lately and not at the higher level.Three weeks ago, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York issued a rejection of requests by the NFLPA and Tom Brady to reconsider a decision that reinstated a four-game suspension of the New England Patriots quarterback. Brady was punished in relation to deflated footballs being used during the AFC championship game after the 2014 season.As with Deflategate, the Peterson case was ultimately about the scope of Goodells power over player discipline and its implications stretched well beyond the initial behavior that landed Peterson in trouble in the first place.Information from The Associated Press was included in this report. Saucony Originals Shadow Original . -- Arizona raced out to a big lead and did not back off, hitting the accelerator instead. Saucony Womens Shoes Clearance . The Montreal Canadiens announced on Friday that the veteran forward will return to the teams line-up on Saturday night when the Habs visit the Nashville Predators. http:///...-viridian-green.html . - Derek Wolfe says hes finally healthy after suffering a seizure in November that doctors now believe was related to the spinal cord injury he suffered in the preseason. MIAMI -- All-Star guard Dwyane Wade said Saturday that he intends to try to find ways to stop racial violence, and that he has friends who are willing to commit to the cause.I think this is a worldly thing. This is not just an African-American thing, said Wade, who will be signing soon with the Chicago Bulls. We all believe in one common goal, to stop the violence.Two of Wades closest friends -- Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James -- have spoken out on social media in recent days in response to two recent shootings of black men by police officers. Then Thursday in Dallas, five police officers were killed and seven others wounded; one of the suspects allegedly said he was targeting white officers.Anthonys message included the words: Theres NO more sitting back and being afraid of tackling and addressing political issues anymore.Wade said he loved seeing Anthony say that.As an athlete and as a person who has this platform, we like to sell things, we like to be on commercials, we like to do all these things, Wade said. But when things come up in life I think you have a responsibility as a face of this woorld, if you believe in something to get behind that. Saucony Shadow 5000 Black. This will not be the first time Wade tackles a polarizing issue. When unarmed teen Trayvon Martin was shot to death by a neighborhood watch volunteer in a gated Central Florida community in 2012, Wade and James -- then members of the Heat -- arranged a team photo with all players in hoodies, just as Martin wore on the night he was killed.Its awful. Its always been awful, Wade said. Now because of all these cameras and social media, were able to see it more. We have to do better. Its going to take certain people to lend their voice, lend their time to do that. Im happy to say that I have friends that are willing to do that. Well all get together to see what we can do and we can go from there.Wades foundation also plans on trying to develop safe-havens for kids in Chicago, his hometown and a place that has long been dealing with a gun-violence epidemic. Wade had a nephew injured by gunfire in Chicago in 2012. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaCheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
