NFL provides SOME evidence to players
So on the absolute last day to present evidence for Monday's hearing, the NFL dumps 200 pages of crap on the lawyers to sift through over Father's Day weekend.

Was the infamous ledger included? Nope.

Who are the real liars and cheats in this case now?

NFL turns over some evidence to four players suspended for New Orleans Saints bounty program - ESPN


NEW YORK -- The NFL turned over some evidence to the four players suspended for the Saints' bounty program, but lawyers for the players said Friday they are seeking more information.

"We have followed the procedures set forth in the CBA on appeals of commissioner discipline," league spokesman Greg Aiello said.

Those procedures include the parties exchanging "copies of any exhibits upon which they intend to rely no later than three calendar days prior to the hearing," Aiello added.

Evidence presented included some 200 pages of documents, with emails, power-point presentations, even hand-written notes, plus one video recording. But a ledger that reportedly documents payments of $1,000 for plays called "cart-offs" and $400 for "whacks," as well as $100 fines for mental errors, was not in the material. :argue:

Vilma's lawyers, Peter Ginsberg, said the evidence the league provided did little more than reflect Williams' approach to firing up his players.

"The league provided no evidence to us in a timely manner," said Ginsberg, who also is representing Vilma in a defamation lawsuit against Goodell. "It has provided no evidence to corroborate the accusations, and yet the NFL furthermore has told us it doesn't plan to present any witness at the hearing."

What the HELL am I doing here on another "bounty" thread? But as long as I'm here, I've gotta say:
There is no way godell is going to reverse godell's ruling as that would give ammunition to the suit against godell..... What country is this again?
