Somehow, ESPN isn't reporting this.

Shocker.

Did we hear about the appeal yet? Wouldn't make sense to do that until after the ruling IMO.

Regardless his image is tarnished, although defamation is almost impossible to prove.

Yep. All over twitter. Albert Breer (NFL Network) has picked it up too. This will take fire soon.

I wonder if the NFL anticipated the bounty situation would end up being such a mess.

Who knows but they probably could have avoided at least this lawsuit if they would have made Vilmas suspension 4 games instead of a year

correct. and it's a no lose situation for vilma. the public already thinks he's a POS thug and he's already suspended for the year, this wont hurt anything if it doesnt work out
