At this point it more a battle for power and fairness. The Saints may not win the WAR as far as an "incentive based pay" program, but there are many battles they may/should win.

This is now a battle that could change how things are done in the NFL. It effects much more than just the Saints organization - everyone involves recognizes this one point.

Power will ultimately be the reason why both sides will continue to fight, but there is one thing Vilma brings to the table no other party has interest in - Reputation.

Neither side wants to give up power - real or perceived.

The wild card in this situation is Vilma.

It's more like; how do you motivate guys that already make millions of dollars?

Create "incentives" or "games within the game" to keep their edge.

Like Vitt said - this team is being punished for the spoken word, not the action.

Wrong again.

the NFL is trying to look like good guys at the expense of our team.

They screwed with the wrong franchise.
