While former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue and attorneys representing the NFL and the four players fighting league suspensions all filed into a downtown office building by 8 a.m. eastern Thursday morning, former New Orleans Saints assistant Mike Cerullo wasn't seen entering the building.


It's possible that Cerullo, a former quality control defensive assistant with the Saints, could be testifying via videoconferencing. Cerullo and former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams are the primary league witnesses against Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma, defensive end Will Smith and former Saints defenders Scott Fujita and Anthony Hargrove. Williams is scheduled to appear at the hearing Friday and according to one report Thursday was seen boarding an aircraft in St. Louis bound for Washington.

Tagliabue, appointed by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to conduct the appeal hearings, declined to comment as he entered the office building while Peter Ginsberg, Vilma's attorney, declined to comment other than to respond "terrific," when asked how he was doing. NFLPA lawyer Jeffrey Kessler is involved in the hearing as well as former U.S. attorney judge Mary Jo White, who is representing the NFL.

@angrywhodat
Story of his career RT @LarryHolder No sign of Mike Cerullo. Doesn't mean he's not participating. Just haven't seen him.



Hilarious...

So he could be taking part by phone or video conference so that nobody can see the tell tale traits of a liar.
What the chance of him having a bad connection when things don't go we'll.

Exactly....I wish Vilma's lawyer could hire someone like the guy from that show 'Lie to Me' to sit in while he cross examines. That would be fun to watch. LOL.

This is not an interrogation, it is a hearing... only the words count, not where you pull them from or what you look like doing it.

I honestly think it should be done at Getmo.

He might use the Benghazi defense employed by the WH... was it a video, was it not... or even perhaps the Monica Lewinski defense...

More like the CHICKEN defense...

Chubby Chicken that is! He worried about getting blindsided on the way into the hearing....

Re: Mike Cerullo not spotted as New Orleans Saints bounty hearing begins in Washington

Roger, Tim Landry, Cerullo, Pamphilon. None of their accusations or claims have proven anything. This is getting on a year now and all we have is a team punished with no evidence.

What I have learned is that Roger walked away like a coward when real questions started being asked, Landry was a thief, Cerullo is a fat disgruntled former employee who won't show his face, and Pamphilon has still not produced the doumentary on Gleason or proven anything with his audio.
