Saints Players Win Appeal
 
Per Adam Schefter's tweet:

With Saints winning appeal, suspensions are voided as Roger Goodell doesn't have jurisdiction and Stephen Burbank does.

Well good, now they won't be so angry and we should have an easy time trouncing them complacent ****s :)

Does this mean Vilma plays on Sunday???

Will Smith [B]is[/B] starting.


Vilma's coming off a couple of knee surgeries so it doesn't matter, he'll be rusty and slow.

So this has no impact on Payton's (and Vitt's) suspension? Interesting that the players will be cleared but the coach has to sit out an entire year...

Did the coaches appeal?

Guess not... I remember Payton accepting his punishment, seems like a bad call in hindsight. I didn't know if the arbitrator had authority to vacate all suspensions or just those of the players appealing.

Good for them. The league went overboard with these suspensions.

Adam Schefter:
"With Saints suspensions overturned, players are eligible to play this weekend. Talk about a can of worms being opened on eve of 2012 season."

I'm going to play conspiracy theorist for a second, even though I don't really believe it:

Doesn't it seem weird for the NFL to do come to this decision 2 days before our game against the saints? It seems very similar to the way they hit the Skins with the salary cap penalty right before free agency.
