Players are free!!! All player discipline vacated.

Larry Holder ?@LarryHolder
Wow! NFL vacates all player discipline in #Saints bounty case via @gregaiello.


quote:

Tagliabue affirms factual findings of Commissioner Goodell...concludes Hargrove, Smith, Vilma "engaged in conduct detrimental" and vacates all player discipline. "Unlike Saints' broad organizational misconduct, player appeals involve sharply focused issues of alleged individual player misconduct in several different aspects. My affirmation of Commissioner Goodell's findings could certainly justify...the issuance of fines. However, this entire case has been contaminated by the coaches and others in the Saints' organization."

Now I want my coach and draft picks back, and I want Goodell to hurt.

Put this in the OP:

Done. This interesting to me. How is he going to affirm Goodell findings and totally undo his punishments? It seems like he's talking out of both sides of his mouth.

Exactly what i was thinking. The official statement makes no sense. Thanks for putting it in the OP Patty. You have to read that thing.

re: Players are free!!! All player discipline vacated.
So he frees the players since they can fight back and throws the front office under the bus. Probably the best exit strategy for the league but it also probably means we won't be getting our pick back
