NFLPA denied access to question Saints

According to Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated, the NFLPA has been denied access by the NFL to question the Saints on the bounty allegations. They also refused to postpone decisions on the penalties as the NFLPA asked.

Quite frankly, I'm extremely annoyed by this. Seriously, wtf? This whole thing feels sketchy.

Seems to me that the NFL may be hiding something and they do not want the NFLPA to know about it. This will probably open another can of worms for the NFL to deal with.

Please, please, please let this blow up in the league's face & cause Goodell to step down.

I still don't understand how the Saints can be singled out in this whole ordeal. Didn't the NFL already say that Gregg Williams' former teams were being investigated as well?

I have this feeling also, that they are misinterpreting what the Saints were doing because of the language. "Knock out" hits and cart off hits, doesn't necessarily mean that the Saints were playing outside the rules, only that they were trying to put some good legal hits. Gregg Williams has always been known to use some very aggressive vocabulary, and I really think the fixation those terms has been over-done on by the media and possibly Roger Goodell.

The NFLPA needs Drew to make it work.

They aren't misinterpreting - at least I don't think so. I think the league knows full well that the Saints weren't doing anything that wasn't commonplace. I think the league sees the documentation of what the Saints were doing as an opportunity to act. I still think is all pre-trial posturing. The league is already working on what it will do when all these poor disgruntled concussed former players get their day in court.

Well I don't think the league is misinterpreting(though it's possible I suppose), though the whole thing is horribly misrepresented in the media. They act as if our defense was going out their with switch blades or something. The media spinning it out of control because they probably have read too hard between the lines allows them to leverage a stiffer penalty; which they will use to enforce whatever agenda they have in the future.
