Bounty Gate Goes to Court

NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell  and New Orleans Saints, Jonathatn Vilma

our government. There should be some type of players involved in decisions over how much people should be fined or what they should be fined for, as well as coaches, as well as front office people.

“I don’t think it should be just totally based on what two or three people may say who are totally away from the game. I think it should be some of the players who are currently playing.”

For his part, Goodell says that he is just protecting the brand. Once in an interview he said, “My job is to protect the integrity of the NFL and to make sure the game is as safe as possible.”

He also claims that the personal conduct policy is “designed to protect those players and their reputations, because I think we have a bunch of great guys in the league.”
