Now you're talking CLASS ACTION baby! Due to the nature of the case, I would want none other than Morris Bart to file a big fat poop sandwich on behalf of all Saints fans.

Hey Roger...

Hopefully the court will award Vilma $5 Million of Goodell's money.

It will be far more detailed than the paragraph appearing above, and it likely will consist of an effort to dismiss the case, possibly under the argument that the labor agreement supersedes the litigation process, forcing Vilma to file a grievance under the CBA.
Hey Florio,

As a former lawyer you should know (if you read the lawsuit documents) that this is mono-y-mono, Vilma v. Goodell under "personal jurisdiction." At NO time does the lawsuit name the NFL!!!!

No NFL = NO CBA

Last place Vilma would want to be is on the stand.
This is just a move to try and scare Goodell.

Why? Vilma has no clue what evidence is against him. Nobody has that information. To assume the one holding that evidence is scared is laughable.

Goodell is smart enough to not go after players by name if he didn't have conclusive evidence on the matter. IMO, punishing the coaches and owner were enough.

If Vilma didn't put down any money then they have no evidence. Possibly circumstantial hear say. Nothing more. Unless of course, it's fabricated evidence.......
Vilma you are still the man.

If Goodell had "conclusive" evidence implicating Vilma, he would have already shown what he had the numerous times the NFLPA asked to see it... Just to be all: "See I told you so!"
