Remember when they were rporting therewere 22 players out of 27 who participated? Well, how come only 4 players have been suspended? Because they can't prove it!

Maybe Goodell used to be a man too. What do you think?

LOL, Time to go to court Godell. See your suspension in place after Vilma retires .

Courts could delay player suspensions in Saints' bounty scandal for months, if not years

Vilma has retained the services of New York-based attorney Peter Ginsberg, the same attorney who successfully defended Vikings defensive linemen Kevin and Pat Williams in the "Starcaps" case.
Ginsberg declined to say what exact course of action he would take in Vilma's defense. However, another source said Ginsberg was advising the players to "go rogue" and sue the league over this matter. At least one other player has spoken with Ginsberg about representation, but so far only Vilma has retained him.
LOL
Slow enough that one attorney with knowledge of the case said he believes the suspensions of current and former Saints players Jonathan Vilma, Will Smith, Scott Fujita and Anthony Hargrove aren't months away from being decided.
Try years.

Im actually going to enjoy this part

Ex-Saint: Players will fight suspensions to Supreme Court

Ex-Saint: Players will fight suspensions to Supreme Court


"De Smith is not gonna put up with his players getting penalized without a paper trail," said Evans. "It's an uphill battle to suspend a player for eight games (or more) without hard evidence.

"They will probably fight this thing all the way to the Supreme Court."

"The evidence conclusively demonstrated that from 2009-11, Saints players of their own accord pledged significant amounts of their own money toward bounties, that players accepted payments for "cart-offs" and "knockouts" of injured opposing players, and that the payout amounts doubled and tripled for playoff games," Goodell said in a statement.

The NFL Players Association released a statement on the suspensions that asks for the evidence used to determine the punishments.

"After seeing the NFL's decision letters, the NFLPA has still not received any detailed or specific evidence from the league of these specific players' involvement in an alleged pay-to-injure program," NFL Players Association Executive Director DeMaurice Smith said. "We have made it clear that punishment without evidence is not fair. We have spoken with our players and their representatives and we will vigorously protect and pursue all options on their behalf."

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.
