Larry Johnson Seeks Expedited Appeal

It looks like Larry Johnson will not be accepting his punishment quietly. According to ProFootballTalk.com, agent Peter Schaffer said the following:

"We will be filing an appeal tomorrow." [...] "It is our belief that the action did not warrant the discipline unilaterally imposed by the Chiefs. We’ll be asking for an expeditied hearing, and hopefully we can work out a positive, mutual resolution with the Chiefs. If not, we’ll defer to the arbitrator’s decision. Larry’s desire is to get back to his teammates as soon as he can."

Because the suspension was from the team, the case will be ruled by a private party rather than Commissioner Goodell.  For more discussion check out Arrowhead Pride, our Chiefs blog .
