MINNEAPOLIS - The NFL Players Association filed a federal lawsuit Monday for Adrian Peterson, asking the court to dismiss an arbitration ruling that upheld the NFLs suspension of the star running back.The petition also requested a court order for Petersons immediate reinstatement, arguing that Peterson has served far more than whats allowed by the collective bargaining agreement between the league and the players. Attorneys for the NFLPA asked to expedite the case in Minnesota, where the union has often gone to contest labour matters with the NFL.Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Peterson without pay for the last six games of this season and through at least April 15, the result of the child-abuse case that has kept the 2012 NFL MVP out of all but one game this year. Harold Henderson, the arbitrator appointed to hear Petersons appeal, affirmed the entirety of Goodells decision Friday.The union argued that Hendersons decision was biased and overreaching, contrary to fundamental principles of notice, fairness and consistency and the essence of the CBA.Henderson, the former NFL executive vice-president for labour relations, has heard 88 appeals, according to the league.In the petition, the NFLPA said Henderson ran roughshod over the required procedural protections of the CBA and summarily rubber-stamped the unlawful process and punishment of Mr. Peterson with his ruling.In his written decision last week, Henderson backed Goodells assertion in determining punishment that Peterson lacked remorse for badly injuring his 4-year-old son with a wooden switch in an attempt to apply discipline. Peterson has said hes sorry and meant no harm.The fact that Arbitrator Henderson dismissed what Mr. Peterson actually said in favour of unverified and out-of-context news reports speaks volumes about his evident partiality, the NFLPA wrote in the petition.The union accused Goodell of punishing Peterson to satiate public calls for his resignation due to prior disciplinary failures and said he picked Henderson to hear the appeal to to avoid another embarrassing reversal of his decision.Goodell initially suspended Baltimores Ray Rice for two games and then declared him out indefinitely Sept. 8 after video surfaced of the running back delivering a knockout punch to the woman whos now his wife. Between those decisions was Goodells announcement Aug. 28 of tougher penalties for players involved with domestic violence, including a six-game suspension for a first-time offender.The injuries to Petersons son occurred in May. The union said Peterson should not have been subjected to the enhanced personal conduct policy.The arbitrator in Rices case overruled Goodell and reinstated him, though he had no team to return to because the Ravens had released him Sept. 8. In the petition for Peterson, attorneys pointed to that arbitrators ruling that Goodell lacked the CBA authority to apply the enhanced policy to punish prior conduct.The NFL didnt immediately respond to a request for comment.The NFLPA again hammered away at NFL executive Troy Vincent, devoting about 10 of the 74 pages in the petition to recorded conversations between Vincent and Peterson informing the player hed face only a two-game suspension under the previous policy and could rejoin the Vikings in late November.Mr. Vincent expressed to Mr. Peterson that the NFL believed he had already paid the price for his conduct and that, accordingly, his time on the Commissioners Exempt List prior to November 4 would be factored into any discipline the NFL would impose, the unions lawyers wrote.The transcripts of the phone calls, used in Petersons appeal, were provided to The Associated Press by a person familiar with the case. The person provided the transcripts on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to release them. The talks took place after Peterson reached his plea agreement in Texas on Nov. 4 and before Goodell announced the suspension Nov. 18.The NFLPA also criticized the NFL for keeping Peterson in continued purgatory on the exempt list, essentially paid leave, between those dates.Peterson called Vincent to find out how many games he would be suspended, and Vincent tried to convince Peterson to meet with Goodell and other NFL executives to discuss personal progress and expectations for moving forward. Vincent told Peterson that NFL officials responded favourably to Petersons suggestion he be suspended an additional two games provided Peterson agreed to meet.In his ruling, Henderson dismissed the contention that Peterson was retaliated against for not meeting with Goodell on Nov. 14.___AP Pro Football Writers Barry Wilner in New York and Rob Maaddi in Philadelphia contributed to this report.___Online:AP NFL websites: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Armani Watts Jersey . -- Jose Bautista never worries about hitting homers during the regular season.

"Its amazing to do this coming from such a small island, where tennis isnt necessarily recognized as one of the main sports," Puig said. "Im just happy Im able to be here playing tennis not only for myself, but for my country too.The Toronto Raptors are having one of the best seasons in franchise history - in a year when nobody expected it. Many believed sneaking into the final playoff spot would be a success for the Raptors this season, but even that wasnt guaranteed. But with only 11 games remaining in the regular season, Toronto (40-31) sits in third place in the Eastern Conference, 2 1/2 games ahead of the Brooklyn Nets for tops in the Atlantic Division and a postseason spot all but official. This will be the first time since 2008 that the Raptors will play in the NBAs second season. With all of the good fortunes the Dinos have seen this year, who has been most integral to the teams success? DeMar DeRozan is the face of the franchise and is one of the longest tenured members of the Raptors. The 24-year-old made his first All-Star Game this season and is leading the team in points scoring 22.7 per game. This is DeRozans fifth year in the Association and he signed a four-year deal last season to stay north of the border for the foreseeable future. Will the team only go as far as DeMar will take them? Kyle Lowry has quickly become a fan favourite in only his second season in Raptors colours. The rugged point guard has shown bulldog-like toughness on a nightly basis, playing considerable minutes and being the man the team has looked to when they are in need of a spark. Analysts and fans alike thought the 28-year-old should have been in New Orleans for the All-Star Game. Averaging 17.6 PPG (scoring over 20 points in eight consecutive games) along with 7.7 assists per game makes a good case for that argument. His future is uncertain in Toronto with Lowry hitting the free agent market this summer, but the Raptors are glad to have him for the time being.dddddddddddd Is he the one to thank? Then theres Amir Johnson. At only 26, he can be considered a veteran, already playing in his ninth NBA season and is an important part of the Raps front court. He averages 11.1 PPG, 6.9 rebounds per game and is a strong force on the defensive side of the ball. Maybe the key success is coming from the sidelines. Head coach Dwane Casey is in his second year in charge of the Raptors and seems to have finally gotten through to his players. Toronto has gotten much better defensively only allowing 97.6 PPG, good enough for fifth in the NBA. Is the coachs defence-first mindset the reason the Raptors are headed to the post-season? The success could be attributed to General Manager Masai Ujiri. The Nigerian hasnt brought in a lot of highly touted talent since he took the job last off-season. Instead hes used the method of addition by subtraction to improve on the court. First, he shipped the much-maligned Andrea Bargnani off to the New York Knicks followed by sending Rudy Gay to the Sacramento Kings during the season. Toronto is 34-19 since Gay was traded out west. With the offence no longer going through Gay, the Raptors have been able to score more efficiently. Not to mention the players coming back to Toronto - namely Patrick Patterson and Greivis Vasquez – have helped the Raptors to get where they are today. Do we have to look to the front office for the reason behind the sudden improvement? So, who do you think is the most integral to the Raptors success this season? As always, its Your! Call.
