NFL will make no ruling today on players' bounty appeal
 
This afternoon, Pro Football Talk reported that NFL spokesperson Greg Aiello said Commissioner Roger Goodell would not make a ruling today on the appeals of four current and former New Orleans Saints players. The players are appealing league suspensions stemming from allegations that they took part in a Saints pay-for-performance bounty program.

Goodell conducted the players' appeal hearing in New York exactly one week ago.

Jonathan Vilma, who is facing a season-long suspension if the league's penalty stands, immediately reacted on Twitter after hearing the news.

"What's this guy waiting on? Make your ruling so we can get on with phase 2 already," Vilma wrote.

Aiello's statement came three days after NFL Players Association Executive Director DeMaurice Smith sent Goodell a letter calling for the league to restart its bounty investigation, saying it was "unprofessional, unsubstantiated and incomplete."

The only thing he's delaying is Vilma's day in a real (read NOT Kangaroo) court.

He needs a little more time to "transcribe" more evidence.

Goodell sits at a conference table.. 30 investigators, aids, and lawyers surrounding him....someone is twirling a pencil around his fingers.... everyone poised, waiting, for the spoken word of the Emperor...

out of the silence comes...

"how much of this crap is real?"

Good point. Being "King Sack" has to be a hard task.
