Yeah its been quite the circus.
The funny thing is 1/2 the fans want everyone to shut up on the saints and take their medicine. So, when SP does exactly that, because he really has no choice but to if he ever wants to coach again, then he's guilty.
The other 1/2 wants them to fight it, if they are innocent, but when they do, Saints are whiners.
Its just a no win situation.
The best way for this to be handled at this point might be for vilma to turn down all offers of a reduced sentence. We might not have a spot for him on the roster anyway with Lofton and the other 2 LB's we acquired.
I think the confusion that ESPIN is having is that Goodell's NFL attorneys hold him he needs to cut a deal with Vilma. I don't know of any deal that Vilma has been offered yet. They must have just jumped the gun again.
But, if your attorneys turns to you and tells you to cut a deal, it usually means they cant defend your case and win. But your right, this has been nothing but PR
, but I will say this...He started it
