Goodell upholds suspensions for Vilma, Hargrove, Smith, Fujita
Today, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has decided not to change the discipline of the four players he suspended in the league’s investigation into the Saints’ bounty program.
That means Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma will continue to be suspended for the entire year, Packers defensive end Anthony Hargrove will continue to be suspended for the first eight games of the season, Saints defensive end Will Smith will continue to be suspended for the first four games of the season and Browns linebacker Scott Fujita will continue to be suspended for the first three games of the season.
This is a result that everyone, including the players, expected.
Now, the players plan on taking the NFL to court to try and receive a temporary injunction for this season.
In the end though, it seems as though Goodell will have the final say and is not likely to change his mind on the suspensions.
