Vilma's case dismissed...

@gregaiello Judge Berrigan has dismissed the Vilma/Ginsberg defamation case against Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Berrigan in the dismissal: "Even though this matter has been pending only since May of this year, it feels as protracted and painful as the Saints season itself, and calls for closure."

That's sad for Vilma's sake and the legacy he will leave behind - especially considering he wanted to get his name cleared for the sake of his daughter.

Re: Vilma's case dismissed...

NFL Network was talking about it. Saying the Judge still felt that Roger handled everything so poorly. Since Tagliabue got rid of all suspensions/fines, she felt this was the only way both sides could end and get over it...

Vilma can still take it to circuit court is he so chooses...

Re: Vilma's case dismissed...

There was absolutely NO chance of that lawsuit going forward. It's all over and done folks... Can we now finally put every aspect of this crap behind us? R.I.P. anything Bountygate related.

Rumor has it Mr. Goodell is being asked to be a part of Mardi Gras. He is being asked to be King of the Krewe of Douchebags. His Queen has yet to be named, but rumor has it Judge Berrigan is considering his offer.

Confirmation will follow by Jeff Duncan, Master of Ceremony for the Krewe of Douchebags.

Not surprising really, but very sad indeed.

No. Because our coach is still suspended, and the team is still facing a draft without a 2nd round pick as part of this mess.

Re: Vilma's case dismissed...

I'm actually surprised. I thought he had a good case. Someone I believe leaned on her to drop it. She said herself, she had a problem with RG but not enough to pursue what is right? I know it's hard to prove but the $10K on the table with no evidence or anyone to back up the story is slander IMO when it's released to the media. It damaged his career.
