The tone of the of New Orleans Saints linebackers coach Joe Vitt's testimony from Dec. 3's portion of the bounty hearings conducted by former Commissioner Paul Tagliabue took a sharp turn once Mary Jo White, the head of the NFL's legal team, questioned Vitt.

NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune recently acquired a copy of the transcript of Vitt's testimony in front of Tagliabue. Peter Ginsberg, lawyer for Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma, first questioned Vitt in the proceedings and White followed for cross-examination.

This isn't a complete transcription, but it's an in-depth look at Vitt's cross-examination.

Some big information was just released today ... the transcripts of Joe Vitt's testimony at the appeal hearing. These two stories detail it. Very eye opening to some.

They are long reads but awesome in content. Both Cerullo and Gregg Williams get butchered.

Re: Joe Vitt's Testimony Goes Public

Love me some Joe Vitt! I sure believe his testimony over Williams and Cerullo. Wonder why the league didn't take Joe up on his offer to testify with he and Cerullo tethered to lie detectors? Hmmm? Afraid they would have to admit how shoddy and shady their "investigation" was?

Yeah...when Vitt said he'll take a lie detector test that when I really knew all this had to be BS. No one in their right mind would volunteer for that unless they were telling the truth or trained by the CIA on how to pass it while still lying. And Vitt sure as hell don't work for the CIA...

Re: Joe Vitt's Testimony Goes Public

These are great reads.

If Cerullo ever needs Vitt to cross the road to save his sorry life, he is going to be out of luck. Vitt rightfully hates the hell out of that man. The bit about Vitt busting him out for making up crazy stories to get out of work was awesome.

Poor Vitt sounds just out of his mind that they are believing a liar like Cerullo and a nut job like Williams. Not that I blame him. It really does baffle the mind that this all happened because of those 2 guys.

Great reads thanks for posting. I have a lot of respect for Joe Vitt and I hope he's with the Saints for many years to come. The guy did not deserve this.
