Gregg Williams has left us with a mess.
ESPN said at halftime, Vilma had 9 affidavits in his favor... Bet they weren't signed 3 days ago

This was the reason why the NFL left the way they did.Williams either backs them up or never coaches again.
His career is over anyway,no player/Coach/front office will trust him again

Sooooo Vilma was suspended two months ago for evidence obtained three days ago? Hmmmmm.... Nice move Roger. That's gonna stand up in court every time. You dumb f***!

Re: NFL say Williams confirms Vilma put bounty on Farve

i wouldnt be shocked to hear there was a bounty on favre that game. i specifically remember a few late hits, including one out of bounds on favre. i also remember the next day after the nfc championship game thinking, "damn, we played dirty as hell!" i even brought it up to people at work. only i wasnt condemning the bad play, i was lauding it! i was happy we played dirty.

just sucks we got caught.

Re: NFL say Williams confirms Vilma put bounty on Farve

If Vilma really did put a bounty on Favre, I dunno.

But it dont surprise me we going back 3 years to the Favre game because I think thats what started all this **** to begin with.

But if you were to put this in court, that piece of evidence would be thrown out based off the fact of the date it was signed, Williams being suspended until further notice, the fact this was bought up after the hearing.

It holds no water and really it becomes weak as far the smoking gun.

Williams signed the paper. He will take the stand and testify against Vilma. Everyone wanted to know the source. Now you have it. Like it or not, agree with it or not, it's extremely doubtful Vilma will win his case now. The only thing for sure is it will continue to be a story and a distraction for the team. Not good.

Agree with that.He will struggle to win this IMO.
It's distracting the team and needs sorted one way or the other soon.Whats annoying me is that Smith should be halfway through his suspension and all the players baring Vilma would have been ready to go when Vitt returns,now it's likely that when he returns the suspensions will be ongoing.

Re: NFL say Williams confirms Vilma put bounty on Farve

So if I'm reading this correctly, the NFL suspends Vilma in March and then the evidence is an affidavit from September? Folks, that's straight out of Kafka or George Orwell. I mean you have to roll forward with whatever hand life deals you, but that is really bizarre.

Nothing dirty about that game. That is football and if you don't believe me go back and watch videos of all the greats that have played the game. Football is a violent game not pattycakes. Nighttrain Lane use to closeline people when he tackled them. Favre was just the NFL darling and everyone in the NFL wanted him to win one more Super Bowl.
