NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell To Meet With Bounty Players
As we reported last week, the four players who were suspended for their alleged roll in the Bounty scandal with the New Orleans Saints, were reinstated after a panel overturned NFL commissioner Roger Goodell’s suspensions.
Now, it is being reported that Roger Goodell and the four formerly suspended players will meet to discuss the matter.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has agreed to meet with all four players suspended for their alleged involvement in the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal.
In accordance with the collective bargaining agreement, Goodell will meet with Jonathan Vilma, Will Smith, Scott Fujita and Anthony Hargrove.
The dates of the meeting have not been determined, but they likely will not occur before next week. Goodell has said he will determine any punishment in the case after hearing from the reinstated players.
Jonathan Vilma sent a test to ESPN and stated, “I’m expecting a fair meeting, unlike the June 18 appeals hearing. We can all benefit from transparency regarding evidence and witnesses instead of using conjecture or hearsay to come to inaccurate conclusions. I look forward to getting this accomplished.”
So we will have to see when the meeting will occur and what the outcome will be. Stay tuned!
