SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -The NFL Players Association is appealing a federal court decision ordering the union to pay $28.1 million to retired players for allegedly cutting them out of lucrative marketing deals.
A jury found in November that the union failed to include the retired players in deals with Electronic Arts Inc., the maker of the popular ``Madden NFL'' video game, and other companies.
Attorneys for the retired players claim the union cut them out of licensing deals so active players could receive bigger royalty payments.
The union argued that companies paid licensing fees exclusively for active players.
The players' association filed its appeal Tuesday in U.S. District Court in San Francisco.
