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?"
