I hope an image of the email servers for the NFL is requested and granted to the NFLPA lawyers.

I want one email found, the one that states "we know everyone is going it but we are going to make the Saints the example for the league".

Or do anything about it until AFTER he was fired.

Especially since gODhELL basically upheld Fujita's suspension by proclaiming Fujita was on the Saints defense as a leader and should have known about Bounties anyway, therefore Fujita is guilty "just because."

......therefore Cerullo is guilty "just because".....

That's the reason why Vilma's legal team attached the email in their court motion to have the court help find another arbitrator besides Tagliabue. The email shows:
  • The NFL got a sketchy invite to hit the Saints from Cerullo
  • Cerullo was bargaining for information before giving it to the NFL (ie. I was fired, I'll give you trash on Saints if you make sure I get a job in NFL)
  • That there's an answer to Cerullo's email....
All of which will be subpoenaed to the court. If the NFL tampers with the evidence and that can be proven, people will go to jail.

It's another warning shot over the NFL's head to think twice or this case will become a federal circus where the NFL WILL BE EXPOSED.

This may be the one thing that keeps this out of court - settlement.

But, the settlement could be so "pricey" the league may push it.

Since day 1 Vilma has only asked that the charges against him be removed and a formal apology from Goodell and the league.

That's why this has followed so closely with the actual appeals process through the NFL. If the NFL successfully suspended Vilma for a year then yes the NFL would need to compensate him for his loss.

At this point I think Vilma is going to apologies, legal fees and compensation based off of overall loss to his image. Even a high 20 million dollar judgement against the NFL would be a drop in the bucket.

Again, previous settlement discussions revolved around Vilma not serving any time... not half a season as the NFL offered.

Believe me, if the NFL continues down the path they appear to be heading.... they'll have to settle for A LOT MORE MONEY than had they come to their senses at the beginning of the season.

It still angers me that there's no hope of getting Payton back.
