Goodell just got his nuts chopped off.


Yep. All his authority has just been destroyed. The owners need to move to have him removed as commissioner and get someone else in there asap.

OK, PFT just put this up...
http://profootballta...e-commissioner/

“While we agree, then, that the Commissioner had jurisdiction to discipline the Players in this case, we are uncertain that the discipline handed down was attributable, in any part, to that aspect of the Program which lies within the exclusive jurisdiction of the System Arbitrator,” Howell writes. “While we could speculate, it is not clear from the record before us whether had the distinction we draw in mind at the time he disciplined the players.”


So essentially this ruling by the panel is kicking it back to Goodell to review and re-issue "punishment" IF it's appropriate for him to do so...

The panel is apparenlty confused as to whether Goodell punished the players for violating the CBA by receiving money that isn't accounted for in their contracts or whether he punished them for the conduct of trying to injure other players... because depending on which of those things they are being punished for, Goodell may not have the authority to impose punishment.

So basically the panel said "watchu talkin' 'bout Willis?"

Dude, seriously change your sig. You can adopt a Skin over at Redskins Nation or whatever the hell their forum is called. Even if Kerrigan were a Panther, I'd find that gif annoying as fug.

As a Panthers fan, I'm glad the suspensions got lifted. I hate the Saints*, but I hate Goodell and his dictatorship ways even more.

Meaning that, realistically, he could just reissue the suspensions with better wording.

Correct... at least that's how the guys at PFT are interpreting it, and I am too... He can clarify that he's punishing them for "detrimental conduct" or something and reinstate the suspensions.

I would laugh my ass off if the Saints* release Vilma by 5 to avoid a guaranteed contract.
