CHRIS MORTENSEN A LIAR; NFL DENIES ANY SETTLEMENT OFFERS; VILMA'S MEMO UNRELATED

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Its all about PR. Even if the league has enough circumstancial evidence to convince most that a pay-to-injure program was going on, they don't want their Commissioner tied up in a messy legal battle televised for the world to see. ...

So even if they think they can win this thing, they'd probably rather settle and be done with it.

Now they just have to convince Vilma to call off his dogs. Good luck with that Roger.

Sacrificial lamb if Vilma case goes south in any number of ways. So pretty good depending on ruling or settlement.

SPPMO. Stupid People Piss Me Off

Has the league EVER really produced evidence that would stand up in a real court?

No they haven't and thats one of the main reasons that they want to settle. If the judge from these hearings halts the suspensions of Vilma, that means that she believes that the league did something wrong in this process...which does nothing but give the other judge who would try these cases in court a reason to have the NFL give up ALL of their findings (which they basically don't have), call witnesses and hold them under oath at the risk of perjury. There is no CBA to abide by in court just the law and the evidence. If this goes to court you better believe this will blow up in Rogers face even more than it already has and he will be fired.
