@mortreport: NFL in settlement talks with suspended Saints****** players. Story up shortly on http://t.co/JGa47PVh and on @SportsCenter with @EdWerderESPN

@mortreport: Sources say league has proposed to reduce Jonathan Vilma's one-year suspension to 8 games but no agreement yet. Talks ongoing.


Holy poo... This will undoubtedly get more and more interesting over the next 24hrs. I'm going to bed though.

I know this doesn't go in this forum, but it will have a direct impact on our division. Please continue updating this thread.

@mortreport: Here's the story on NFL/Saints***** settlement talks; #Saints***** player reactions soon to come http://t.co/FJ3S20eN



Sorry to be the bearer of bad news... Wish I hadn't check my twitter line b4 bed. Now I gotta stay up until they report it on SC






EDIT: 11:38am est

@JasonLaCanfora: League puts out statement denying any settlement offer was made for Vilma, calling it "completely inaccurate." Does not refute talks ongoing

i actually agree with TCF's placement. i think all NFCS news, unless it's completely trivial, should be allowed in the main forum, or at least leading up to the regular season

I personally don't give a fug, being that we play them week 3 or somin I believe... But it appears as though Goodell is trying to avoid the defamation of character suit that I mentioned before. It definitely doesn't look good for Goodell to offer him a "plea"

The plot thickens

No issue with the players getting a reduced suspension.

The Saints* FO was warned multiple times to stop.....not Vilma. Vilma never should of gotten the same punsihment as Payton.

Let all of them come back including Sean Payton. I don't give a fug, we are kicking their ass twice this year no matter the circumstances. Vagasil face can kiss my ass, we don't back down from anyone, anymore.

just tired of hearing about it.

the supposed overturn would basically only be a reduction in the amount of games that vilma is out. who cares? it's not like payton is coming back or anything, right?

non-story, imo unless something of that magnitude happens, which is doesn't sound like is the case.
