I agree this whole "bountygate" deal has gotten out of hand but part of that is because Vilma and others won't let it go. Is it pretty unfair? Yep. You know what rule I learned as a child
- life isn't fair sometimes.
From the people I've talked to from different states outside of the SE, most people are kinda getting tired of the Saints logo simply because it's always on ESPN with "Vilma filed another lawsuit alleging that blah blah blah". While he might be in the right, albeit only technically, at what point does he/saints fans move on?
Let's be real for a minute - if the Saints we 5-0, no one would be talking about this and the lawsuits would've probably stopped. But when you're 1-4 - excuses gotta go somewhere, right?
ETA: Also, and maybe I'm missing something, but didn't Goodell warn the Saints FO numerous times to stop the pay for performance crap years before the hammer came down?
