Professor William B. Gould is mentioned in the following CBS Sports article by Clark Judge for previous predictions he had made about the NFL lockout.

The NFL strongly believes arbitrators will uphold its position regarding commissioner Roger Goodell's suspensions of four players involved in the New Orleans Saints' bounty scandal -- and I know a legal expert who believes they will, too.

Meet Geoffrey Rapp, professor at the University of Toledo's College of Law and one of two sources I consulted a year ago during the NFL lockout. Along with Stanford Law School professor William Gould, Rapp accurately predicted that the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals would uphold the NFL and, in effect, bring an end to the lockout.
