Seeking more clout in their fight with the NFL, locked-out players asked a federal judge Thursday to make $4 billion in disputed broadcast revenue off limits to the league and to award them at least $707 million in damages, too.
The NFL is making two additions to its legal team _ David Boies, who represented Al Gore during the recount fight in the disputed 2000 presidential election, and former U.S. Solicitor General Paul Clement.
He said the players don't have the right to access the money, however, and balked at the proposal for an escrow arrangement.
"It would in effect give the players some entitlement to that money which we don't believe they are entitled to," Levy said.
