Paul Tagliabue ruled in favor of the players in the Saints bounty case “vacating all discipline” and completely going against Roger Goodell. We are, simply put, shocked.
The NFL has been looking for alternatives to the kickoff because it is the sport’s most dangerous play. Nevermind that eliminating kickoffs or restructuring its framework doesn’t make football a safe sport, just a very, very slightly less dangerous one. Still, that’s not stopping Roger Goodell from making a weird suggestion.
Today In Hypocrisy: Ndamukong Suh’s NFL-Approved Nuts Kick On Matt Schaub Will Cost Him $30,000 Anyway
We found out yesterday that Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh would not be suspended for kicking Matt Schaub in the groin, which by the way is a wildly inaccurate synonym for someone’s nuts. Given Suh’s history stomping people and such, no one would have been surprised had he been suspended.
Halloween is fast approaching (next Wednesday!) and most of the parties are happening this weekend, so that leaves you with little time to prepare if you remain uncloaked for the festivities.

Three decades ago, Roger Goodell was an aspiring young chap, fresh out of college and eager to make his mark in the world – specifically, by working in whatever capacity possible for NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle. And thanks to SI Vault’s Andy Gray, we can all have a look at how he went about achieving that goal. See it after the jump.
Every year NFL players complain about the Pro Bowl, fans complain about the Pro Bowl and the NFL vows to do something about the Pro Bowl. Nothing ever happens. Sure, they moved it up a few weeks to before the Super Bowl, but the basic premise of guys willingly putting their bodies in harm’s way for a meaningless game renders the entire exercise worthless.
Roger Goodell Has Recused Himself From The Bounty Appeal In Favor Of Former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue
You know that whole bounty thing, the one in which Roger Goodell suspended four players, an appeals panel overturned the suspensions and Goodell overturned the overturning? Yeah, that one. Well, now there’s an appeal of the overturning of the appeal of the original suspensions, and Roger Goodell was set to hear the appeal.
We found out yesterday that Roger Goodell was only slightly amending the punishment to Jonathan Vilma, Scott Fujita and Anthony Hargrove, and keeping Will Smith’s four-game ban the same. The NFLPA, pissed that Goodell ruled in favor of Goodell and against the three-person panel which threw out the suspensions, wrote a scathing letter promising retribution.
The NFLPA Is Not Happy That Roger Goodell Ruled In Roger Goodell’s Favor After An Appeals Panel Ruled Against Roger Goodell
After a third-party appeals panel reversed Roger Goodell’s decision to suspend four players in the New Orleans Saints bounty case, Goodell has, four weeks later, only slightly altered his sanctions against Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma, Saints defensive end Will Smith, Browns linebacker Scott Fujita and unsigned free agent defensive end Anthony Hargrove.
