The Tide Is Clearly Turning Against Goodell

Whitlock is probably going the Skip Bayless career route. "Hmmm, lets see... my writing sucks, nobody finds me likeable or charismatic... I KNOW! I'll just make ludicrous statements that are incredibly controversial with absolutely zero backing just to suck people in and gain ratings! Theres always gotta be a villain!"

That's probably true, but in Whitlock's defense, he actually writes things down. Badly, but he writes them down which takes some level of effort. I assume Bayless spends 2 hours yelling at whatever they put across from him (Journalist, athlete, pineapple, box turtle, etc) and then goes home to scrawl on his walls with feces and make love to his mother's corpse. Just a guess, that statement is not backed up with any factual evidence . . . yet.

Yea terrible

Whitlock was the celebrity spokesman for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Kansas City.

The Scripps Howard Foundation awarded Whitlock its National Journalism Award for commentary on March 7, 2008. Whitlock was the first sports writer to win the award

NFL already said they had one of the top former prosecutors in the nation review the evidence

result? overwhelming evidence against suspended players

But you dont understand. The great state of Louisiana has only been following pro football for like 6 years. This cant end so soon. And the courts there are way betterly doned than in the rest of the US.

Hey... keep that on the DL. I'm his agent, I get 10% of this. In all seriousness I have seen Bayless in an office setting, his statements are scripted, that doesn't mean they are thought out though. It's like saying someone is smart because they know a bunch of languages... all it really means is you can be an idiot and more people can understand you. I also think Bayless is well aware of the persona he puts on and it's mostly an act because he knows he can make money doing it. You can occasionally see hints of this on first take.

Back to the topic at hand, what exactly does Vilma hope to gain from this lawsuit anyway? I doubt a court can lift his suspension, and even if they did everyone in the NFL still knows he's a scumbag. Money? Who cares, wouldn't effect either Goodell or Vilma, both have plenty of it. Like I stated in another thread about this, there's no way Goodell gets his position taken away from him, and if it is, he'd probably be reinstated in the next vote between owners and the NFLPA. A public statement from Goodell saying "Oh, so Vilma didn't post 10k to take Brett Favre out of a game, but he's still a dirtbag who participated and stood pat while an illegal career threatening bounty system took place and is equally at fault as Joe Vitt, Loomis, and Payton. So yeah... sorry I lied."?

Why would you be surprised that the NFL has lied already throughout this process

The NFL has said and many people on this board would swear that Hargrove's words acknowledge the existence of a bounty program and show that Hargrove initially lied to NFL investigators about it. Hargrove's statement does not say that he lied to anyone, nor does it state that he or any other Saints** participated in a bounty program

and here is what is more troubling. The fact that if the exact same process was happening to Jon Beason you would be up and arms yet you don't have enough character to admit it. How can the following not bother you???

"The fact that we haven't received a single piece of evidence from the commissioner not only makes the whole process suspect but made it important that we ask the commissioner as specifically as we possibly could what we think we should be able to see in order to even the playing field and in order to give Jonathan a fair hearing," Ginsberg said. "And I must say that the commissioner still hasn't responded to this most recent request. This is not the first time we have asked them for the evidence."

Ginsberg said the reason he believes Goodell hasn't obliged the request is because the evidence isn't as damning as the NFL has made it out to be.

"What the commissioner has said publicly, the accusations and allegations against Jonathan are not true," Ginsberg said. "They are simply not accurate.

"Add to that the fact, as we have seen in the press the last few days that the commissioner's office and the commissioner's outside counsel have discernibly misrepresented even the information that the commissioner has gathered. When you put that in the context of the commissioner's high-priced outside counsel saying that when we asked for evidence and when we wanted to know what we were answering to - and this is (outside counsel Mary Jo White) quote 'a Red herring,' it really puts into perspective the kangaroo court that Jonathan and the others have been subjected to.

Keep posting random statements that you and your Saints* buddies keep scrounging up while ignoring to respond directly to any of our legitimate posts regarding your original statements, because thats how forums are supposed to roll rofl.

Your like the husband who keeps hanging out with a strange woman and changes the subject or yells at the wife for one of her faults every time the wife asks about the other girl.
