The NFL issued a grievance to Vilma demanding that he drop his lawsuit with Ginsberg saying the grievance is “improper”. This term was used frequently by the NFL concerning Vilma’s appeal and is a sort of “wink wink” directed at them.
Ginsberg went on to state that the lawsuit is not directed towards the NFL , but at Goodell for “his false and irresponsible public accusations and allegations against Mr. Vilma apart from any conduct as commissioner”.
Vilma and the other suspended players plan on filing a temporary restraining order to be able to continue working with their teams but that doesn’t look like it will be a worthwhile cause.
The end of this battle between Vilma and Goodell will be one that will leave a lasting impression to the beginning of a new football season. To quote a recent Twitter update by Vilma, this is something everybody “no likey”.
