Three Things for All NFL fans to Consider...

(1) This could easily be your team - there's is all this supposed evidence that exists but only a few people are allowed to go behind the emerald curtain with the other rabbis to see what Oz has as evidence. As a fan or consumer, with investment (i.e. Game Tickets, Jerseys for both daughter & self, NFL Channel Gameday) and as a LA taxpayer whose public funds have gone to the NFL, well, quite frankly, I want to see the evidence as to why the people I've invested aren't allowed to be on the field on gameday....

(2) Imagine your family or friend was on trial - Much of the "leaked" evidence has had a tone of "Joanie told Chachi told Fonzie" heresy. The evidence is given to the public by "qualified, established" sports writers whose interests are suspect as they will no longer have league sources if they choose not to present the league's argument or viewpoint. Now you may hate the Saints (it's your prerogative) but if your team was being condemned and sentenced, you'd like the key piece of evidence to be more than statements from a former, bitter ex-employee. You really want to see someone convicted by Abigail Williams in a Crucible-type of scripted hearing?

(3) Single Out One Team When All are Guilty - That's what's happened here; you have former players of the Redskins, on air, saying they did similar activity in Washington and Buffalo. Brian Urlacher laughed when questioned and suggested this kind of stuff was commonplace in the NFL. And there is a big, big difference when you pay someone for performance and you pay to injure, maim - and that's the rub - the Commissioner has said players were paid to injure. Now, he's trying to put the toothpaste back in the tube by saying they were paid for performance - both may be wrong, but there's a big difference in the two.

Vilma was publicly condemned for the harsher rather than the now lesser accusation; defamed without evidence being allowed to be examined, questioned, and scrutinized; and most, most importantly, All Americans can agree that regardless of any CBA,

Due Process and Civil Rights may not be subverted for a CBA...
