WSJ Applauds FCC Chairman Pai, Commissioner Carr in Support of T-Mobile/Sprint Merger

Echoing CFIF, today's Wall Street Journal board editorial applauds Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai's and Commissioner Brendan Carr's expressions of support for the proposed T-Mobile/Sprint merger:

By joining forces, T-Mobile and Sprint will be better positioned to compete against wireless leaders Verizon and AT&T in the 5G era.   Sprint is sitting on loads of mid-band spectrum that boosts wireless speeds while T-Mobile boasts ample low-band spectrum that provides coverage.  The combination is likely to provide a faster, denser network."

An attorney has filed a lawsuit against the NFL on behalf of New Orleans Saints' season-ticket holders following a missed call in last week's NFC title game.

Attorney Frank D'Amico, Jr., is demanding that the NFL invoke Rule 17, Section 2, Article 1 in the NFL Rule Rulebook that he says "could, in the right circumstances, allow the commissioner to take extreme action in the face of a grossly unfair result." The complaint stems from what many are calling an obvious missed pass interference call in the final minutes of the fourth quarter. The Saints had to settle for a field goal, resulting in a tie and overtime; ultimately, the Saints lost the game 26-23.

According to the lawsuit, D'Amico claims NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has the power to reverse the outcome of the game and have the teams replay the finish of the contest from the point of the blatant missed pass inference call. "The petition filed by our office was not a petition for damages, but rather a petition for a Writ of Mandamus which seeks equitable relief and NOT monetary damages," D'Amico's firm's Facebook page notes.
