Call It: Was Tagliabue right or wrong?
By Pat Yasinskas
By now, we know that former NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue, acting as an appeals officer, vacated all player discipline in the New Orleans Saints bounty case.
As I wrote earlier, this comes across as convoluted because Tagliabue also said he found the fact finding of current commissioner Roger Goodell to be correct and the Saints did run a three-year bounty program. But mixed messages like that often happen when you get lawyers involved and people are worried about covering every angle.
But let’s boil this whole thing down to one simple question and let’s put the answer in your hands: Did Tagliabue make the right call?
