Vilma has been suspended for the entire season with Smith for four games, Fujita for three, and Hargrove for eight games.  While suspended, none of the players can have contact with their respective team.

Vilma also has a civil suit filed against Goodell for defamation that he has done on his own that the commissioner has until July 5 to respond to.  Out of all of these, this is something that Vilma has the best chance of winning and even then that’s not promising.

    Goodell is a ass anyway and he has it out for the Saints at any cost.

    @JoePetitjean; A lot of people’s think Goodell is doing the right thing I disagree with all of his calling. If he going off of hearsay man the whole NFL is in trouble because he has the power to do what he wants that’s not right. But my hat goes off to Vilma for standing up to Roger Goodell its going to take someone like Tom Benson to control Goodell because he is really trying to pull the Saints organization down off of hearsay mess. I want to see if he going to suspend Harper because of hearsay if he do its call for Tom Benson to put his foot down on the NFL, if not NFL commissioner Roger Goodell going to destroy his organization.

    Tom Benson needs to remind Goodell that he commissioner is appointed by the owners,so he can lose the job at anytime.
