The actual appeals panel decision reads as a very emphatic and resounding endorsement of Goodell's case and the players' guilt. They just had to overturn an aspect of it due to language. The suspensions will be back in place shortly.

they haven't. thread title went off wrong info.

goodell has to reword the suspension and the infractions.

some thought it meant gooddell got overruled or suspensions were overturned and started reacting accordingly. they jumped the gun, tho and thought this meant something that it doesn't.

bad guys are still gonna get punished. haters are still gonna hate goodell and gooddell will still be right.

fug em all .. go Captain Go panthers IDGAF :rolleyes:

Dammit...I specifically said, "I support Captain, you support Dwan" and you agreed. I see no mention of Dwan in your post. Just because I don't have an adoption sig yet does not give you the right to ignore me!

In other news, you guys need to get over to the adoption thread and pick up the last 2 or 3 remaining Panthers with no home. No kidding...get your asses over there and do the right thing.

Let me educate all of you AGAIN!

First of all I have told you all along that GODELL would be proven wrong. He jumped to conclusions, tried to make a case that wasn't there, lied about evidence and more. He needs to be kicked out of the league. Not only are the players free but it won't be long before Payton is back. Not that they will need him, especially early in the season. There first few games are the easier part of their schedule.

Second, for all of you who are saying the Saints*** are in trouble with the cap please check the numbers and get back to me. They are under by more than enough to bring back players.

Third, for all of you who think the players won't be ready please please have a clue. Will Smith has played in every preseason game and has practiced the entire time so he will be as ready as any player. Vilma is hurt but Lofton is a much player player than Vilma and the Saints*** D overall is significantly improved.

What an amazing day for the Saints*** organization. I have a feeling it is just the beginning of what will be a storybook year ending in a Super Bowl championship with Godell having to give the trophy to a reinstated Sean Peyton.

This is freaking awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Or...not.

League’s internal memo suggests that suspensions will be re-issued

While it was a victory on the surface, it was fairly hollow and potentially temporary.

...

It’s likely that the league will simply re-issue the same suspensions.  Indeed, the memo sent by NFL general counsel Jeff Pash to the various teams on Friday clearly indicates that the league continues to believe that wrongdoing occurred — and that there should be significant punishment for it.

...

It would be a surprise if the outcome is anything other than what it already was:  a full season for Vilma, four games for Smith, three games for Fujita, and eight games for Hargrove.

:lol:

LOL at all the Saint's apologists who jumped the gun with all their proclamations of being right when it looks like they are likely still wrong. Meantime the rest of the league and the world are moving on.

Umm on second thought...

Nobody cares about such details today, though. The players pulled a major upset and left Goodell looking very much like the cruel tyrant some deem him to be. The league can consider its own legal moves at this stage, but there's no real value in that. It's best to settle this matter quickly rather than risk any further embarrassment resulting from sheer pride.
