Jonathan Vilma's Lawsuit Against Roger Goodell Dismissed - F ROGER GOODELL

Vilma's defamation lawsuit gets dismissed.

Well I didn't expect much but I was hoping that this lawsuit would make the NFL release their "alleged" evidence.

Power corrupts and that son of a bitch Goodell is about as corrupt as they come.

In the end he got what he wanted, no Saints Super Bowl in their own city.

F U ROGER GOODELL


"Vilma's argument that the statements were made in Goodell's individual capacity is unpersuasive as Goodell was sued as Commissioner of the NFL and all of the statements attributed to Goodell were made in connection with the NFL's investigation of the pay-per-performance/bounty allegations," Berrigan wrote in her ruling. "Therefore, Vilma's claims are preempted and must be dismissed."

"While the Court is extremely disturbed by the fundamental lack of due process in Goodell's denying the players the identities of and the right to confront their accusers, that was substantially rectified later in the process," Berrigan added. "So while the process was initially procedurally flawed, the statements were ultimately found to have enough support to defeat the defamation claims."


If there are any lawyers on this MB please chime in. I would like to hear your opinion.

exactly ... Goodell was doing what the owners told him to do.

The owners were reacting to the lawsuit of the players.

Have no idea why people are getting pissed at Goodell about it.

The players can stop all the safety rules and making the league 'soft' anytime they want by dropping the lawsuit and reaching some kind of agreement with the league.

To this day, players are still bitching and moaning about safety rules and fighting against them ... yet still suing.


on a side note, apparently the NFLPA had access to the same information about concussions as the league and did nothing the entire time either.

In fact i believe the NFL tried to approved a concussion diagnosing insert that went into the helmet years ago and the NFLPA blocked it.
