Vilma- Goodell refused to show evidence

Saints LB Jonathan Vilma says:

While Vilma was vocal on Twitter about his innocence after the punishments came out, he refused to be interviewed during the league’s extensive investigation. He explained why.

“We asked for evidence and he wouldn’t give it to us,” Vilma told NFL.com. “How can I defend myself when I don’t know what I’m defending against? It’s just logical, things that people decided to ignore.”


Asked specifically whether the union told him not to cooperate, Vilma said he asked for evidence, Goodell would not share it, and he responded, “How can I defend myself if I don’t know what I’m defending against.”

I'm no one.
Who are you?

He's probably stashing funds somewhere because he knows he's made a bad decision and is on his way out.

I'm not a big Vilma fan but he has the right to see the evidence. Goddell might not have the evidence on him.
