[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Vilma Files Suit vs Goodell : The NFL is more than a business; it is a national institution, an entity that represents the values of the country. Fairness and Democracy are values we hold dear and the world still judges us by these standards.

The NFL is and ONLY is, a buisness.
It is the people such as yourself that add the extra superlatives, declaring it a national institution.
PLEASE, explain how a company that does nothing more than provide entertainment to its viewers become the way in which the world judges the United States in its values and political standards....I'm sorry but you are totally delusional if this is your understanding of the NFL.
as for players rights......
The NFL is an buisness employer, nothing more.
When you sign a contract with your employer you agree to conduct yourself in a manner of which your contract states and will adhere to the rules and regulations stated of said parties involved and the company.
The players in this company have a legal Union (although a total fiasco) for their benifit.
If there is evidence that Mr. Vilma not only added money but planned attacks to do physical harm on other players within the NFL, this should even be taken further. The players should hire legal council against Mr. Vilma and seek him to be put in Jail.
If any of you were planning to attack someone and put money up to do so, if caught you would be in Jail. But because this is the NFL its ok?
Many of you may hate Roger Goodell, but without him, the NFL is totally amuck with thugs, drug users, cheaters and now hitmen within the organization, so where does it end?
There is not 1 of us here that has any idea what Roger Goodell faces in trying to save and keep the NFL as balanced as possible.
He is the head of the organization, and as the head you have to make many decesions that MANY people will not like, good bad or indifferent, he is doing so.
The NFL is a business, period, it owes no one anything except its owners and shareholders. For those of you thinking its the United States symbol of Democracy, I say to you please seek medical help and call Doctor Phil immediately....
HURRY....Vince McMahon called and would like to see you!
