The NFL's hammer has finally fallen on Saints players, as the league suspended four players for their role in the bounty scandal. Linebacker Jonathan Vilma felt the brunt of the league's wrath, as he won't be playing at all this year, pending appeal. Did the NFL get it right?
Was justice served?
The bounty scandal has divided players, with many reacting strongly on Twitter to the suspensions.
A fair punishment?
Vilma's punishment is equivalent to coach Sean Payton's one-year ban.
An end to bounties?
Undoubtedly, the bans and suspensions have had an effect on any existing bounty programs, but do you think they've been eliminated completely?
