The ONLY chance for the NFL to remain anything that resembles, well, the NFL, is for the NFLPA to DEMAND that Roger Goodell be removed from his position or accept some power checks as it relates to player fines and suspensions. He simply cannot remain all powerful, because we see where that has taken us.

I know these are unprecedented times for the NFL. I know it has to focus on player safety. What I also know is the NFL needs to ensure that an honest and forthright person is in charge. Right now that is not the case.

If I didn't do what was said, why would I have to pay. Goddell needs to admit his information is wrong and apologize and retract the penalties he put on the players ( and coaches) and have a board put under his dumb a$$ to make sure he has the goods he says he has. He sux!!

Fight for what.... The suspensions have been made n they is nothin we can do about it n the players r trying to do something about it... But it's too late...

Pardon me if I'm missing something obvious, I live in somewhat of an NFL black hole, but what is it that the Saints organization is still doing that they need to give up? Are they representing Vilma or Smith in some way? Are they still fighting anything?

Benson apologized and gave his word that the Saints would cooperate in the investigation in any way they could. Loomis, Payton, Williams and Vitt all apologized, appealed and accepted their punishments.

The NFLPA is contesting the suspensions of the players, and Vilma has a personal slander suit against Goodell.

Are the Saints actively involved anymore?

The severity of punishments is not for the actions of a team but for the inaction of the coaches ie, lying

Like Vitt said, "We are being punished for the spoken word, not the action"

He's right.

There is no way to answer that. If their were a movement by the Saints organization to support and provide the players with assistance it would never be publicly acknowledged .
