Only if he decides to assert the absolute defense of truth. Otherwise Vilma has to show that RG knew the statements were false. Knowing it was false is different than having firm evidence.

I literally just got done with one of these cases.

Also, I'm avoiding the whole discussion of malice and intent, which might be required given Vilma's public status.

Proving that Goodell intended to lie would be near impossible, but if Goodell's claims of thousands of pages of hard evidence plus assertions that coaches and players admitted to pay for injury are proven to be false or mischaracterized, can that legally be found to be defamation? The public claim of evidence that doesn't exist, I mean.

There is a lot of talk here about "proof" and what would/would not matter in court. Consider that this would never go to court, as the NFL does not want to get involved in depositions & having to show exactly what its evidence consists of. This is the leverage that Ginsberg is counting on & in the end, the league will want to settle. Goodell has said over & over that the league does not want to "rat out" its snitchers & the league would have do exactly that when the discovery subpoenas hit its desks. The discovery demands will ask for any & everything the league has in this matter. Next would be the depositions of GW, Curello, Goodell, etc etc. And according to this morning's Times Picayne, Curello is now very obviously a disgruntled employee.

Let's see...the affidavit was signed on FRIDAY and today is MONDAY. Not sure about exact dates but from the time the suspensions were voided until GW signed that affidavit was about 10 days. Just enough time to have your people contact his people and get it all arranged. This investigation is getting more sketchy at every turn.


So very true ..... If it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck.....

The BS meter is screaming !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
