Yes, Judge Berman pretty much let the Commissioner become his own horse’s head. The Godfather of Football has awakened to find his prize stallion a moist parcel under the silk sheets.
There’s no telling how those bitter owners will take the humiliation. Apparently in America, money can’t buy a judge you try to handpick to hear your case.
