You act as though you believe that there were truly bounties placed on opposing players as Goodell claimed. Is that what you believe? If not then there is no way in hell Vilma should settle. If you do believe that then ... I don't know what to think.

:brood:

Here is the catch and question. How badly does Vilma want to play?
If he settles, the suspension starts and 8 games later if healthy he can play.
If he fights, and the fight drags out a few months, which it will through appeals etc... he could win but never play this season.

If Vilma wins, he'll gain a huge settlement AND (eventually) get to play.

Best of both worlds!

Lots more at stake for Vilma than just wanting to play this season. Life after football. It's narrow-minded to think he is just fighting for 8 or 10 game checks here.

Could we start a class action suit against the kommisar for damages? I can't be the only person out here that has a headache from all of this. The least he could do is spring for some aspirin for us.

The only thing Vilma does not have on his personal side is time.

At 31 with a bad knee, and a career on the decline....

His knee is a HUGE problem. He injured his knee on September 18th 2011 then had his knee scoped around Nov 7th 2011...... Nine months later he is not ready to play.

When someone of importance steps to a microphone and says, "We have 50,000 pages of evidence, proving that "someone" placed injury bounties on opposing team players"; I don't care who you are, you believe that team did what they are being accused of. Like HALO said, that's a lot of paper!

I want that 50,000 pages to be shown! Prove it to me and to the rest of the world! If they have it; fine. If they don't; whoa be unto Goodell and the SOB's that have tried their best to tarnish our team. And not just because it's our team, but the NFL could have done this to any other team in the leauge. Other fans and teams of the NFL should be demanding this also.

If the NFL gets away with this, they will do it to another team(s) in the future.

I understand the need for a middle ground but NO!!! Vilma needs to take the commish and the league to task with this. If you did not do something and being accused you fight for that; all or nothing is what Vilma is basically requesting either you produce the evidence you have or let us play cause you have nothing - Vilma is doing the right thing for him in this case

Scratch that earlier comment about one knee procedure.... Apparently he had had three procedures.

Affidavit reveals that Jonathan Vilma has had three procedures performed on left knee - New Orleans Saints Football NFL News - NOLA.com
