DeMaurice Smith Takes On the N.F.L. Owners - NYTimes.com
By SRIDHAR PAPPU
January 22, 2011

As a corporate lawyer at Patton Boggs, the high-powered Washington firm,
Mr. Smith dealt with companies that were either “in crisis or were
about to be.” As a candidate for the N.F.L.P.A. job, he composed what he
called “Playbook: An Enterprise Philosophy to Maximize the Business and
Political Interest of the N.F.L.P.A.” “About 60 percent of it,” he
said, “was envisioning what the chances were of a lockout and what to do
to prepare for it.”

It was a useful exercise. “The only bad thing is that everything we
thought and contemplated the league would do they’ve done,” Mr. Smith
said.
