Yea, pretty strange for the decision to come two days before the game. However, I doubt these players will contribute a lot due to conditioning issues.

Does the league get to appeal?

Re: Saints Players Win Appeal

I thought I recall hearing that Vilma was likely going on the PUP list. Not quite sure though

Re: Saints Players Win Appeal

Great day for the NFL and particularly the players. This sets a huge precedent that Goodell is not the "Great and Powerful OZ" he makes himself out to be. He is used to being judge, jury and executioner. This decision took a bite out of his role as executioner.

The timing sucks for us but this a huge victory for those opposed to how much power Goodell had.

Re: Saints Players Win Appeal

Does this really help them much though? Vilma likely wont play and they may lose a bit of the edge they would have if they felt hard done by once again.

Re: Saints Players Win Appeal

Not so fast.....,

Panel vacates bounty suspensions | Comcast

"The panel said Commissioner Roger Goodell did not have jurisdiction to hear the players' appeals of their punishment for their roles in the New Orleans Saints bounty program that paid cash bonuses for hits that injured opponents."

....and this,

"The panel's decision states that Goodell cannot suspend the players for receiving money from a pool that paid for big plays, but he can still suspend the players if he can prove they intended to injure opponents. Players and coaches implicated in the bounty pool have testified under oath in a related federal court case they never intended to injure opposing players."

He is currently on the Reserve-Suspended List but Saints supposedly consider him putting him on PUP very soon if they feel he can not return from his knee injury. He won't play this week even if he isn't put on PUP.

I'm not really worried about Vilma. I'm more worried about will smith who has played in the preseason and crushed Brady on a play in one of those games.

Hopefully next year fans of other teams will talk about us with the same respect-for-performance with which we talk about the Saints.

That would be real nice!! I cant stand hearing "the Redskins a once proud franchise" if i hear that one more time I'm going to puke. Skins are still a proud franchise.
