Player Suspensions
Okay now we know what Mr. Gooddell brought on the organisation, what du you think the ruling for indiviual players will be? How severe and how long?

I think anything more than 5 games would insane!

Haynesworth got 5 games for stomping on a players head, Suh got 2 games last year.

So I conclude:

Vilma 5 games
Harper 2 games (late hit on Smith)

But as for the rest of the current defense?

If so the league would have to punish Fujita and co!

Hoping for the best, expecting the worst.

But it doesn't matter, I'll still be watching the games even if Billy Joe Shuler is starting at strong safety.

What´s hoping for the best? What´s expecting the worst? What players are we even talking about.

I think the players association will make a strong case for fines and claim that the players were worried Williams would bench/release them if they didn't take part.
Vilma will be the sacrificial lamb IMO,he will get a long ban maybe 8-10 games,if not the whole season.
I don't think they can do much to Haroet as the have allready disciplined him or will have found him innocent of late hits.

I think the suspensions will be too big, just like Sean P. Whole season for Vilma is my guess.

The can OLNY take actions on players they have PROOF of that participated..... otherwise the NFLPA will have a field day with this.... Lets not go getting all NFL Network and throwing people onto the pile that there is no proof of... Like saying there was a bounty on Rogers....

They either take action on players they had PROOF of or they have to take action in blanket form.... any ever every Defensive player that was on the Saints roster 2009-2011.

The catch on GW/Payton/Loomis was that they had proof of GW who admitted and Payton and Loomis fell as management chain of accountability.

How many players are still under contract and on other team rosters.

Fujita and U. Young are with Cleveland
Remi was just released from Minnesota

Player suspensions may affect more than the Saints.

The coaching suspensions affected both the Saints and Rams (Fisher's comments state Williams punishment was warranted, but not so sure they "knew nothing" about what was coming.

Players Union won't allow for a steep penalty imo. It'll start a snitch fest around the league.

Vilma's careers is over.

8-10 games maybe a year!

We'll have to cut him to free up a roster spot... then who is going to sign him to let him sit out those games waiting for the suspension to be over.

Vilma is coming off of minor surgery. We can possibly place him on PUP list while he serves his suspension. He'll probably be the only one suspended because of the alleged $10,000 bounty on Farve if that is proven true. All other personal foul hits have been fined already so I don't think they will add to it and the more severe hits were done by McCray to Farve and Warner so no one is left on the team that it could affect in my opinion. but then again no one knows what the all high Goddell is thinking right about now.
