“I am disappointed the NFL has punished me with a four-game suspension. I have never in my career, nor as a captain asked others, to intentionally target and hurt specific opposing players. I was in no way involved in establishing or assisting Gregg Williams with implementing a bounty program. The accusations made against me are completely and 100 percent false, and I plan to appeal the decision along with the help of the NFL Players Association. Through this entire process, the NFL never notified me of what I was being accused of, nor presented me with any evidence or reasoning for this decision. I am interested in discovering who is making these specific and false accusations, and as well as why a decision was made without speaking with me and giving me the opportunity to review the facts. I am going to work with my union to clear my name and returning to the game I love and respect. Thank you to our fans for the continued support.’’

I have a lot of friends in other states that are not fans of the Saints but they all agree that Goodell is out of control and needs to be fired.

I hate to say it, but Congress may need to get involved to protect the players from Roger Goodell.

This quote of Will Smith pretty much sums it up ... it's the way the entire situation has been handled by Goodell & the NFL that has people up in arms. If you're going to be throwing around 1yr suspensions like candy, you better be transparent, consistent & logical about it.
