Okay. I'm stupid, so somebody 'spain it to me. Why would the NFL show evidence to a group of reporters that it refuses to show to the players it is punishing?

Because it is hearsay, rather manufactured, and not actual evidence. This meets the three calendar day rule, right?

I see - like trying to taint the Jury? If that's accurate - if it's true that they cannot use this 'evidence'...well, but then why couldn't they...

they are, after all, using evidence that wasn't in their possession when they actually punished people...

But I mean, oh hell I don't know. Now I'm more confused than normal...

You get three guesses and the first two don't count!

If they actually had it, they were compelled to turn it over 3 calendar days prior; this means this past Friday. This also means they are pissing in the wind.

They said they showed the same evidence to the reporters that they shared with the players. The fact is that none of it confirms the presence of a bounty system. It could confirm the existence of a pay for performance plan, but that has not been denied.

They did have some "transcription from notes" that implied Vilma, Ornstein, Grant and Vitt gave a total of $35,000 for a hit on Favre, but it was just a typewritten copy of what was supposedly notes from the game.

Solid proof? More like solid bull****.
