09:46 AM ET 11.25 | "Reinstate me in [December] or I wont testify" and now we have Gregg's incentive to lie," Jonathan Vilma said via Twitter. "Boom. Too easy." On one hand, Vilma said he's glad former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue will force former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams and defensive assistant Mike Cerullo to testify and face cross examination in the bounty appeal hearings. On the other, Vilma said he's upset he won't be able to face his accusers as Williams and Cerullo will testify either Nov. 29 or Nov. 30 in Washington D.C.

Second!

And yes - I did watch one game in particular last night.



Congratulations, Stu. My side gave your boys a good tussle. Well played...

I think that frosh kid played a very good game for USC. I believe that was his first start. He certainly showed a lot of poise for a youngster.

Yep... And the future of the Trojans is in good hands there.

But the goal line stand was the game.

This kid from USC is going to be good. He almost had enough last night to pull it off. Big arm.

On another topic, ain't it just like the NFL to schedule a hearing that could effectively end a players career on a day when he has a game to play? Just coincidence? I think not!

I see Vilma is getting his excuses ready.

November 25, 2012  10:14 AM ET

Oh man! I'm so tired of hearing about bountygate!

By this point in any such case the truth has been buried by lawyers spinning it to their clients favor. The facts are irrelevant and will never be known to the public. Not that anybody even cares anymore, if they ever did. Just lawyers mining for gold.

SHUT UP AND PLAY FOOTBALL

If Spygate set the precedent, you'll also be hearing about Bountygate for eternity. The haters will never let it go.

It only mattered because BB created a needless controversy. They seem to be doing OK since that particular form of taping stopped.

Their regular season record has been terrific.

Agreed, I hope Taglibue suspends him for life

Two SB appearances ain't nothing. Lost both by a combined 7 points...one took a circus catch and dropped interception to lose, the other a dropped Welker pass. Kudos to the Giants...they got it done, but I can think of more than a few other teams that wish they had that record.

Without a doubt, a way to put him in a lose-lose situation.

I guess from the get go when the Vilma's of the world were calling Goodall and the NFL a bunch of thugs, that they had two people testify and basically tell the same story. No way in hell Vilma and others get suspended on one persons testimony unless there were taped conversations and other hard evidence.
It takes two people telling the same story and now we know that is the case and its a strong case.
The only hope for Vilma is to find a liberal judge who loves unions to stop everything the NFL is doing.

Hey Vilma! Williams is already suspended because of his testimony. Do you think he lied to get himself suspended. DUH! Williams is well aware he will never coach again that is a given, no one would play for him. His only shot is a consultant for someone. He has to be un-suspended to be a consultant for an NFL team, so the NFL is telling him, come in and re-testify and we will consider your suspension.
Obviously he must tell the same story or he will never get his job back. So in essence, if he told the truth the first time and got suspended, he would tell the truth again since it can't get any worse.
