A mere 42 hours before Sunday’s 1:00 kickoffs, both Twitter and the brain of Roger Goodell are about to EXPLODE.
A three-member appeals panel has overturned all player suspensions in the New Orleans Saints bounty case, according to multiple reports.
With the appeals victory, suspensions to Jonathan Vilma, Will Smith, Scott Fujita and Anthony Hargrove are voided, as NFL commissioner Roger Goodell doesn’t have jurisdiction.
Goodell must redetermine the penalties for those four players now that the remanded case has been sent back to him. The commissioner retains the power to suspend players (likely on a much smaller scale) if he can prove there was an intent to injure.
