    The Daily Beast - 03/30/2016

    “I’d be very, very surprised if they sue,” said Northeastern Law School professor Roger Abrams, who specializes in sports law. “It would open them up to discovery—then who knows what’s in there? It’s likely none of it will prove good for the NFL.”

    Ironically, given the unlikeliness of the league letting the Times look into its own records, the letter demands—in language often used by attorneys to signal they may file suit—that “The Times reporters and editors who worked on this story preserve their notes, correspondence, emails, recordings and work papers and all other electronic and hard copy documents generated or received in connection with this work.”
