And no one spoke to you at all during the process. If this doesn't send shivers down your spine then you are not being honest. Both J. Vilma and W. Smith have publicly stated that

Smith:Through this entire process, the NFL never notified me of what I was being accused of, nor presented me with any evidence or reasoning for this decision. I am interested in discovering who is making these specific and false accusations, and as well as why a decision was made without speaking with me

Viloma:"I am shocked and extremely disappointed by the NFL's decision to suspend me for the 2012 season. Commissioner Roger Goodell has refused to share any of the supposed evidence he claims supports this unprecedented punishment. The reason is clear: I never paid, or intended to pay, $10,000, or any amount of money, to any player for knocking Kurt Warner, Brett Favre or any other player, out of the 2009 divisional playoff game, 2010 NFC Championship Game, or any other game.

If I was stupid and worthless enough to take part in what the Saints did, my feelings wouldn't mean jack.

And for the record, Vilma and all the others were offered the chance to meet with Goodell to discuss this, and declined.

people lose their jobs based on less evidence.

the NFL isn't the judicial branch and doesn't have to follow the same rules.

But they did have the evidence verified by a US Attorney.

That depends, am I incredibly guilty, but have a delusional fan-base that will support me regardless of facts and a union that will do the same?

If so, I'd act innocent. There's no real value in confessing when so many are willing to believe me regardless of evidence because the suspension is unlikely to be reduced, but this way, I can play the victim.

Way to totally whiff on your analogy. The NFL is a corporation. They don't need squat to do anything they want. Seeing as Benson makes up 1/32nd of the league the Saints are suspending him too.

Please show me one shred of evidence that the players were given the chance to meet with Goodell to discuss and declined

Millions of people take felony convictions in the US every year without seeing the evidence against them. When you accept a plea arrangement, more often than not the prosecution has not been required to submit their discovery to your attorney, or the court. There is no legal obligation for the prosecution to turn over evidence until you opt for trial.

[sarcasm font]You guys will be fine. Loomis the genius is just ironing out the minor details of Brees' new contract. It's my understanding that it should be finished in the next few days or so.[/sarcasm font]
