Goodell may be forced to redo punishments for players.

LINK

quote:

A decision is expected within a week, and the NFL definitely has reason to worry, at least a little. The letters advising Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma, Saints defensive end Will Smith, Browns linebacker Scott Fujita, and Packers defensive end Anthony Hargrove of their suspensions make no effort to distinguish between a pay-for-performance program and a bounty system, instead lumping both together. While the letters claims that the suspensions are based upon conduct detrimental to the game, a pay-for-performance system (e.g., $500 bucks for making an interception) isn’t nearly as detrimental to the game as a pay-for-injury system. By making reference to the pay-for-performance system in the letters, the NFL has fueled the argument that the matter should have been handled by Burbank.

If Burbank compels the league to start over, Goodell will have no choice but to do so, probably by fashioning discipline in a way that avoids Burbank’s salary-cap jurisdiction. And while the suspensions may eventually stick, the notion that the process initially was mishandled would create a major P.R. hit for the league — surely prompting some casual observers to simply conclude (albeit erroneously) that there wasn’t a bounty system at all.

In short, things could get even more interesting, soon.

Give it up. Let it go. Accept your punishment and move the Frick on.

If you were being punished for something you didn't do, would you just accept it?

You mean the part where the NFL source said that there was no indication that there was a pay for injury program?

I would say provide a link, but for some mysterious reason Goodell can't provide any evidence.

Where is the "ledger" at then? Oh it's in the super secret vault up Goodells ass. Bottom line, nobody with any sense believes this is justifiable by Goodell (players I mean). He can't be judge jury and executioner without checks and balances. It's beyond being about bounty gate. This is all about Goodells power now.

The main problem are the lawsuits that te NFL is having today. The league has to do something to pussify the game because of all the lawsuits they are facing plain and simple. Hate the player don't hate the game.

Laugh all you want, but the NFL has accused and punished the players for targeting other players for injury, which is most likely a big crock of shite.
