NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has upheld the suspensions of two players involved in the Saints' bounty scandal while lowering two others. Was this a fair approach?
stiletto25: "I am confused...so a judge ruled the suspension were either unjust or too long and the NFL was suppose to repenalize the players. So Goodell lowers 2 suspension, but really only 3 total games....doesn't sound like to me he understood what the judge was saying. "
cols195465: "Goodell needs to also look at removing the bears 85 defense, Dick Butkis, The Entire Steel Curtain, lawrence taylor, The entire Dallas Doomsday defense.... among others from the hall of fame. Because they ALL tried to hurt people. They probably wish there were bounties so they could have gotten a little extra on the side."
wingsfaninsmashville: "So let me see if I have this straight. Goodell suspends the players, hears their appeal himself and doesn't change his ruling. Then an appeals board says "you can't do that" and overturns the suspensions. Goodell then suspends the players again."
sawbend21: "You could tell watching those games something was different about that defense. At the time you just thought they were the most aggressive D in the league - now we see why. And watching Vilma now strut around with his lawyers - he just looks guilty."
coachmaurice: "Goddell will not admit that he is wrong!!!! So, back to court we go! If Vilma doesn't play a down this year, at least he can clear his name and rep."
