Phat Pat Changes Course, Will Appeal StarCaps Ruling After All; Kevin Williams Unsure

From what Judd Zulgad from the Star-Tribune is saying on the Twitter, it appears that Pat Williams has changed his mind and will be appealing the StarCaps ruling to the Minnesota Supreme Court after all.

Phat Pat had initially said that he was giving up on the StarCaps case, citing the $1 million-plus in legal fees that he's paid fighting the 2 1/2-year long battle. However, something has possessed him to change his mind on the matter. . .not sure who or what, as Zulgad doesn't clarify any of that sort of thing on his Twitter or anywhere on Access Vikings that I can see.

Zulgad's partner at Access Vikings, Chip Scoggins, is reporting that Kevin Williams, on the other hand, is still undecided about whether or not he's going to appeal the latest ruling in this battle.

From a Vikings perspective, I'm not sure what to make of that revelation. Obviously, the guy wants to clear his name, which has been dragged through the mud by the NFL for no reason at all. . .but from a Viking perspective, if the NFL is just going to find some idiotic, BS excuse to suspend him anyway, maybe he should just get it out of the way. I'm getting the feeling that next season is going to be a rough one whether we have #93 for 12 games or for 16 games. . .yes, I know, it pains me as much to say it as much as it pains you to read it. . .so it may help the coaching staff to know which four games to plan on not having him for.
