Vilma and Payton are the head of the snake if you will, they had to get hit hard.

Not sure about preseason but can participate in mini-camps and OTAs (as is my understanding)

Vilma found out about his suspension via TV, that's kind of lame

Re: Saints Player Suspensions Coming Down

Horrible move not notifying the players personally but I'm not surprised.

The Saints will be mediocre/bad this season. They won't win their division.

Brees should get out. Now's his chance with no contract agreement.

Wow. Over the top, in my opinion.

Was it bad for my high school coach to tell the defense to take out the QB and if the QB runs the ball "clean his clock" and "take him out"?

I agree this is bad, but 1 year is very harsh IMO for a player.
I agree the suspension was a bit heavy handed IMO but I get it.

Re: Saints Player Suspensions Coming Down

Holy smokes about Vilma. A year without pay and a year of getting older away from a game ruled by young men. I don't condone his actions but I feel bad for him.

Re: Saints Player Suspensions Coming Down

Was it tough? Yup.

Were his actions beyond the pale? Yup.

We have beat this horse to death, some of you clearly think these kind of actions are "ehh, everybody does it so it's okay", "it's just how the game is played" or "they're making it a girly game". For those falling in these category and/or who can't/refuse to see the difference between encouraging hard play and encouraging playing to harm, I just don't have anything left to say. (Finally, you want to invoke the "Nurenburg Defense"? Fine - the name says it all as to its validity).

They did what they did and they got what they got.

Yeah I don't get the people who still think this wasn't a big deal and are shocked at the punishment.

Also, I know that there are people here who are big fans of saying that players need to STFU and just play. Well this is a PRIME example of player who should have done exactly that.

Maybe next time Vilma will think twice about saying something ignorant.

Re: Saints Player Suspensions Coming Down

Just to put this in perspective.

Leonard Little got a DUI and killed someone with his car. Shortly after that he got ANOTHER DUI.

He missed 8 games.

Was Goodell in charge when that happened?

Re: Saints Player Suspensions Coming Down

I have to give Incarcerated Bob some credit. Dude called Vilma's year long suspension a bit ago. He was dead on with his report.

Re: Saints Player Suspensions Coming Down

I think ICB's tweet would explain why Vilma's suspension was so long.


Incarcerated Bob ‏ @incarceratedbob

Commish laid the hammer on Vilma because he was the most vocal about how he couldn't care what commish did.. #TaughtALesson
