Tagliabue Contradicts himself in Statement


maybe a lawyer can break it down for me

quote:

"Adding to the complexity, there is little evidence of the tone of any talk about a bounty before the Vikings game. Was any bounty pledged serious? Was it inspirational only? Was it typical 'trash talk' that occurs regularly before and during games? The parties presented no clear answers. No witness could confirm whether Vilma had any money in his hands as he spoke; no evidence was presented that $10,000 was available to him for purposes of paying a bounty or otherwise. There was no evidence that Vilma or anyone else paid any money to any player for any bounty-related hit on an opposing player in the Vikings game.


then later on says:

quote:

"Having reviewed the testimony very carefully, including documentary evidence that is at the center of the conflict, and having assessed the credibility of the four central witnesses on these matters, I find there is more than enough evidence to support Commissioner Goodell's findings that Mr. Vilma offered such a bounty (on then-Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre)," Tagliabue wrote.


which is it?

There was evidence he offered. No evidence it was paid.

I'm certain there is also evidence that some player said "let's kill 'em" when referring to the opposition. As Coach Vitt has maintained from the very beginning - this is ALL about semantics.

So what is the evidence he even offered, Cerullo and Williams' testimonies?

I... Do... Not... Give... A... frick...

The greatest injustice here is that Goodell is knocking the backside out of some fine-assed hole.

He should be stripped of his marriage license and divorced immediately.

SET JANE SKINNER FREE!!!!!!

Here:

He said there is evidence that vilma offered a bounty but there is no evidence that shows that it was more than just trash talk and no evidence that he had $10,000 in his hand.

He is saying that vilma did make a speech about a bounty but there is no evidence saying the tone was different than some one saying "oh im going to kill somebody" on regular basis when they get angry
