Re: SUSPENSIONS OVERTURNED

The suspensions of Jonathan Vilma and three other players in the NFL's bounty investigation were lifted Friday by a three-member appeals panel, and the league reinstated those players a few minutes later.

More Bounty Coverage
The return of linebacker Jonathan Vilma and defensive end Will Smith is a huge victory for the Saints and will be significant on the field, writes Pat Yasinskas. Blog

Linebacker Scott Fujita wasn't with the Browns this week, but he wasn't far away, either. Now, he's back and ready to help the team, writes Paul Kuharsky.
While the ruling allows Saints linebacker Vilma, banned for the 2012 season, Saints defensive end Will Smith, Cleveland linebacker Scott Fujita and free agent defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove to play immediately, it does not permanently void their suspensions.

Still, the ruling comes just two days before the first full slate of NFL games this season and is a setback for commissioner Roger Goodell and the league.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Goodell would "make an expedited determination of the discipline imposed" for violating the league's bounty rule.

"Until that determination is made, the four players are reinstated and eligible to play starting this weekend," Aiello said.

Right, but he can no longer simply conflate P4P and pay to injure and call it all "conduct detrimental" he has to specifically prove instances of bounties in order for it to be "conduct detrimental." P4P is the realm of the system arbitration process and Goodell can't talk about it or mention it as part of his new punishments.

Basically the appeals board said: "Breach of contract! try again."
And Judge Berrigan is saying "Put your proof where your mouth is, or I am shoving my judicial size 7s in it."

Typo on the original response. What I meant to type is that he CAN re-frame anything he wants however he wants, but this time around he's going to have prove that indeed a payment was made for injuring a player, and which play/player was, and this time around he's going to have to be transparent about the process, make all of the "evidence" available, allow for cross-examinations of evidence, etc.

Well I suppose one could say things just got more complicated....

At least before we had a good idea of what the turnouts could be.

I am not one who doesn't like closure. I would call Goodell and tell him I wish to serve my suspension now and get or behind me.
