    GOODELL WILL DISCIPLINE SAINTS' PLAYERS LATER

    GOODELL WILL DISCIPLINE SAINTS' PLAYERS LATER

    "On Wednesday, Commissioner Roger Goodell meted out discipline to a variety of
    non-players who were responsible for and/or had knowledge of the Saints’ bounty
    system. Players like linebacker <a class="nameLink" href="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/2775/jonathan-vilma">Jonathan
    Vilma</a>, who offered $10,000 to anyone who knocked Brett Favre out of the 2009
    NFC title game, were not punished.


    Eventually, they will be.</p>


    “While I will not address player conduct at this time, I am <a href="http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/03/21/the-nfls-official-announcement-regarding-bounty-discipline/">profoundly
    troubled</a> by the fact that players – including leaders among the defensive
    players – embraced this program so enthusiastically and participated with what
    appears to have been a deliberate lack of concern for the well-being of their
    fellow players,” Commissioner Goodell said in the official announcement
    regarding the punishment. “While all club personnel are expected to play to
    win, they must not let the quest for victory so cloud their judgment that they
    willingly and willfully target their opponents and engage in unsafe and
    prohibited conduct intended to injure players.”</p>


    As recently explained, the <a href="http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/03/18/label-applied-to-saints-players-punishment-will-be-key-to-appeal-process/">characterization
    of the punishment</a> imposed on players will influence the appeal process that
    applies. Discipline for on-field conduct goes to one of two independent
    arbitrators — Ted Cottrell or Art Shell. If characterized as off-field
    misconduct, the NFL ultimately resolves any appeal.</p>


    The NFLPA will be involved in the appeal process, whatever that process may
    be. ”It is clear the League <a href="https://twitter.com/#%21/NFLPA/status/182550829318934528">took the role of
    management and the coaching staff seriously</a> in this matter,” the union said
    in response to Wednesday’s news. The bigger question is whether and to what
    extent the NFLPA will fight discipline imposed on one or more players."</p>

    You keep asking the same question in multiple threads. Are you just waiting for someone to agree with you that it's no big deal?

    I sure hope not. If all we did was wait for agreement we'd be taking a lot of naps.
