    The NFL has offered to reduce Saints LB Jonathan Vilma’s suspension from one year to eight games, according to an ESPN report. Settlement talks are ongoing between the league, NFLPA and legal representatives for Vilma and the other players suspended for the Saints’ bounty program. A reduction in the suspension, however, is conditional upon Vilma dropping his defamation suit against commissioner Roger Goodell. In a July 26 hearing, Judge Ginger Berrigan “expressed concerns about Goodell’s actions,â€￾ ESPN reported, as players denied witnessing Vilma offer a bounty for injuring QBs Kurt Warner and Brett Favre. Settlement talks are set to continue Monday and the next scheduled appearance before Judge Berrigan is Friday.

    now why would he do that? Just wondering why? If he was so sure Vilma did that then he has nothing to worry about. I can understand about the DUI and stuff like that but what he did with the "bounty" stuff was subjective as far as the evidence I have seen. Look, I am all in favor of cleaning up the sport but I feel he should have hard evidence on something like the bounty scandal if Godell wants to suspend Vilma for a whole year. What would I do if he came at me with a lighter sentence? I would probably go for broke and tell him to stick it. But if Vilma does that he better walk the straight and narrow for the rest of the time he is in the league.

    Exactly what i was thinking. Why make a deal if you have some one by the balls. 50000 pages of "proof" you don't cut a deal.

    ROFL! Goodell trying to use this to get out of his suit. Looks like more lies coming from the NFL in this case. For the love of God, we need Goodell gone now.
