League confirms Vitt wasn’t accused of contributing to bounty pool
 
When imposing discipline on the coaches involved in the Saints’ alleged bounty program, the NFL didn’t privately accuse assistant head coach Joe Vitt of contributing money to the pay-for-injury effort. More recently, however, the league publicly has claimed that Vitt pledged $5,000 to the Brett Favre bounty fund, via evidence produced in advance of the player appeal hearings and shown to the media on Monday.

NFL senior V.P. of labor law and policy Adolpho Birch recently confirmed to PFT that Vitt faced no specific claim of offering bounty money. “The short answer is no, we did not consider that as part of what formed the basis of his discipline,” Birch said on Tuesday’s PFT Live. “As we have stated before, what we did from an investigation standpoint is to look for things that were corroborated, and with respect to that particular point, there was no additional corroboration that would lead us to have the same level of confidence as many of the other things that we found.”

Therefore, one would have to lose total confidence that the "typewritten transcript of notes" that implied Vilma's guilt would have to be invalidated since it was the same presented document.

Right?

Can you say ...

BOGUS!!

You don't think Goodell is going to let a little thing like FACTS get in the way of him screwing over the Saints do you?

Congratulation!! This is the most intelligent post you have made since you joined this forum.

I hope you didn't set the bar too high for yourself and you can't sustain it!!

This just proves to me my tin foil hat theory, that they weren't even looking for Vitt, didn't want him, but were specifically looking for ways to use this investigation to get at Gregg Williams (psychopath with histories of bounties), Sean Payton (friends with Michael Ornstein), Mickey Loomis (friends with Ornstein), and "troublemaker" players with negative histories with Goodell, like Smith (Starcaps), Hargrove (drugs), Vilma (poker scandal, a local story in his Jet days) and Fujita (player's union).
