What's Vitt doing?

He comes out and says the NFL is 100% wrong, then he releases a statement saying the media mischaracterized the evidence released by the NFL to mean he offered the money? Its exhibit 9 or 10. I read it. "Vitt - $5000" it says. WTF?

Did they shut him up immediately? Does Goodell have them all on a gag order? Vitt IS the crazy old coach with little to lose (as he's had every job the NFL has to offer) and everything to gain, mainly pride.

He's our guy. He needs to adopt a "take no SH!t" mentailty and give it to the NFL like Hargrove and Vilma are trying.

From Adam Schefter's Twitter earlier today:

Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter

Joe Vitt is outraged at the accusations the league directed at him that he offered money and corrobated evidence. 100% Untrue, he insisted.

Part 1: Joe Vitt called Roger Goodell this morning to tell him he never offered any bounty money and the allegations against him are false.

Part 2: Vitt told Goodell he will take a lie-detector test to prove innonce or sign sworn affadavit that he never participated in bounty program.

Part 3: Vitt: "They're lies. What is on that paper (shown to NFLPA and media) is false. How can anything else on that paper be considered?"

Vitt sounds pretty dang mad, to me! Calling up Goodell to rant, I love it!

The evidence in the slides looks like something a 6th grader made.

I hope Roger planned for a worse case scenario because that's exactly where things are headed for him.

Between this and the screw up on the Hargrove video accusation Goodell, and his hired lawyer, Jo Whatever White, have further discredited all supposed "evidence", regardless of how flimsy and misconstrued as it was to begin with.

Did anybody happen to notice a crawl on espn that quoted Vitt saying that the "evidence" the league presented looked like it had been tampered with, and then it goes on to say "but Vitt never elaborated on what was tampered with, and didn't show any proof of it"... Something like that. But then it says "sources says that the evidence looked absolutely authentic".

Notice how they make a point to say that Vitt doesn't back up his claim, but then these "sources" say it's authentic, yet there is nothing to back that up either. Of course, the mothership doesn't mention that part. This is nothing but politics. Smear tactics, rhetoric, conjecture, everything. It's maddening.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Godhell is black mailing our coaches. That is illegal in a court of law. Maybe this should be the next point that Vilma and company can go after.

Remember.... Sean Payton does not "just return" the day after this season is over... He has to be reinstated by Goodhell.
