The Judge KNOWS Tagliabue works for the same firm defending Goodell and the NFL in court in the Vilma case.

Let's get 1 thing clear: Vilma's case was against Goodell, personally. Vilma's attorney JOINED his case with Fujita, Hargrove etc. BUT Vilma's case is STILL THERE -

Vilma's case is a defamation case against Roger Goodell for transmitting public information that was NOT TRUE about Vilma. It claims Goodell used 'excessive force' in overdoing the Vilma proclamation and deliberately attempted to destroy his reputation. Vilma lost endorsements because of Goodell, along with any charities he represented. Not only did Goodell make media appearances proclaiming Vilma was suspended for a year, but ALSO proclaimed Vilma as the kingpin of the Bountygate scandal.

Make no mistake about it, if Tagliabue makes the EXACT or harder decision on the Bountygate case, the case in federal court WILL go forward and Goodell WILL go on the stand to testify about false or phony evidence.
I agree with you Halo - and I do not believe that the NFL wants that defamation case going to trial under any circumstances!

If that case goes to the courtroom, it will really get UGLY for the league.

The repercussions of the case could reach into other leagues as a precident for other players to use in the future.
