Report: NFLPA appeals Greg Hardy suspension
The union is expected to claim that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell applied the discipline retroactively under the new personal conduct policy, which was not enacted until December - seven months after Hardy was arrested on domestic violence charges.
Goodell, however, has claimed that the suspension is identical to what it would have been under the old policy for conduct detrimental to the league.
Hardy, who signed an incentive-enhanced one-year deal with Dallas in March, could lose as much as $5.8 million if the suspension stands.
