We knew that Vilma was gonna be bad but it kinda sucks that it maybe simply be due to his story getting the most publicity.

No Tracy Porter...so that's good. I wasn't expecting him to get suspended but at least now we know for sure.

AT VILMA

W/E though. The Saints managed to sign the top 2 FA LB's so they're fine. Arguably better LB's too. Vilma was hurt and crappy last year.

"Linebacker Jonathan Vilma of the Saints is suspended without pay for the 2012 NFL season, effective immediately per league policy for season-long suspensions. The investigation concluded that while a captain of the defensive unit Vilma assisted Coach Williams in establishing and funding the program. Multiple independent sources also confirmed that Vilma offered a specific bounty -- $10,000 in cash – to any player who knocked Arizona quarterback Kurt Warner out of the 2009 Divisional Playoff Game and later pledged the same amount to anyone who knocked Minnesota quarterback Brett Favre out of the 2009 NFC Championship Game the following week (played on January 24, 2010). Vilma is eligible to be reinstated after the Super Bowl in 2013."

That's an interesting bit of information

Pretty light too.

Only half players are still with the Saints. One at a position they upgraded and the other is just four games.

But that 4 gamer is a free agent that signed with another team (Wasnt it the packers?) That sucks for them but I am wondering if they knew that those players could be possibly suspended.

They should pull a few compensatory picks from the Saints for that too.

Not surprising, "The U" pushes out a lot of players with pretty questionable character.

Yea, I didn't think Tracy Porter was going to get suspended... I seem to remember him saying he didn't know anything about it. And you figure, with the way the NFL is you better be telling the truth.

I find it funny that Vilma's twitter account's main picture is him on the cover of the SI issue discussing the bounty fallout.

You'd think so...but all this proves these fellers aren't the sharpest knives in the drawer...

I suspect that Vilma and possibly DJ's career is over..
or at least as starters..

they were brothers in college and as someone stated came from the "U" which while having loads of players in the NFL pormoted much of this kind of conduct in bringing in morons to just play football.. And providing Zero "higher" learning while there..

as for DJ his play is not at the level of his salary cap number, so if he comes back I suspect that he will be asked to redo the numbers..

UNfortunately the teams affected still have to pay these morons while on suspension with that money going to charity..

I wonder who gets the tax write off?

I at least hope it is the team in question and not the NFL..

PLEASE if God is merciful make sure it it's not the player that is rewarded..
