Damn

The source promises that PFT will have a “field day” with the transcripts from the Tagliabue hearings, which the parties have agreed to keep confidential until after Tagliabue issues a ruling.


That may be good

ETA: can't wait to see cerullo's testimony in light of the ruling

I hope the eye opening part was good for the players and bad for the NFL. Roger Goodell needs to be kicked in the balls for eternity.

The fix was in before this even got started...

So do I. As much as I hate Goodell and how dickish he's been about this whole bounty affair, I just can't believe he would hand out the punishments that he did without some pretty compelling evidence.

Then why hasn't he used all of this "compelling" evidence yet to just squash all of these appeals and be done with it?
The stupid legal games the NFL has tried to play leads me to believe their case never really was all that great from the beginning.

In the present discussion, that can only be bad for us.

Who cares at this point the damage is done. Vilma completes his suspension. Coaches come back since they have completed theirs. Picks are already lost. Really nothing to be worried about.

Is it? Maybe I'm not looking at this objectively enough, but since the players have already been convicted and sentenced, what would be eye opening about more evidence of their guilt? Also, if it's bad for the Saints, why will PFT have a "field day" with it when they are the ones that have been ripping the so far flimsy case to pieces? Maybe the field day comment is about how much legal minutiae there is to go through, but it's hard to think how things could have gotten worse for the players short of Vilma's bank statement showing a $10,000 withdrawl.

Of course it is. The NFL has always said they had plenty of evidence and testimony, but weren't producing it because they simply didn't have to and wanted to protect sources.

"Eye-opening" infers that something was "seen" (ie came to light) to make someone take note. This would SUGGEST that it is evidence that had not yet been brought up by the League.

Since it suggests new evidence, and since the Players argument is a LACK of evidence, "eye-opening" likely means that new evidence AGAINST the players was presented.

The term, as used, again SUGGESTS that it is bad for players.

Has the Freeh report come out yet?

I for one don't want to see Vilma re-suspended. Seemed like when he got back on the field the D stepped it up a notch or 2. Due to leadership I would think but none the less, I'd prefer to keep the guy out there without missing anymore time.

The cross examination of Cerrulo and Williams may be what's eye opening...

That's my hope, it's 50/50 based on that article.


Guilty as hell or the NFL basically made it up
