    ESPN - DVD from Vince Wilfork's wife Bianca saved New England Patriots defensive tackle from suspension

    Let me ask a dumb question. If there was obviously doubt about whether Vince hit Cutler, and Cutler pats Wilfork on the helmet after the play, why the hell was he fined?

    I don't know, but if he did admit to that Losman hit being a deliberate cheap shot then I feel like a sucker for defending him.

    You actually believe what's being reported? It's contradictory.

    Do you really think it went like this?

    Vince: I admit to taking a cheap shot on Losman last year, but I swear, this year I didn't hit Cutler on purpose.

    Goodell: Why should I believe you?

    Ms. Vince: Here's the DVD proving it.

    Goodell: You're right. You didn't elbow him to the head.

    Vince: You see, I'm innocent.

    Goodell: Well, I have to fine you anyway. You understand.

    Vince: Huh?




    Does anyone believe this anonymous source?

    If I'm not mistaken, the Cutler play was on top of two other unnecessary roughness penalties in the same quarter.

    lol, i really doubt Vince would go in and state that bluntly....

    if he in fact did, i would assume it was b/c he thought doing so would help him right now, in the present

    Color me completely skeptical about the alleged details, they're contradictory and do not make sense together. Either one or more is wrong or some essential piece of information is missing.

    Uhh...what a bunch of bull**** coverage from ESPN, and media leakage from that poor excuse for a commissioner. I mean, can anyone doubt that this media outlet has purposefully killed the Favre story while playing up every possible anti-Pats story on its front page by now? And how the hell is Mortensen privy to what happens inside the meetings? I believe what he is reporting, but why is it being leaked? Why has Goodell not called Favre into his office for a chat? Why isn't he being investigated round the clock?

    One of which they later credited (?charged) to someone else.....
    From Reiss blog 10/30
    >>>The league recently reassigned one penalty from the Broncos game, changing an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on Vince Wilfork and assessing it to James Sanders after his interception.

    re: Mrs Wilfork's DVD saved Vince from suspension (merged)

    Not true. The following is from the Reiss/Vega Boston Globe article. This is how Wilfork described the meeting:

    Wilfork also detailed that his first fine last season - for a low hit on Bills quarterback J.P. Losman - was a big part of the meeting.

    "That's something that really bothered me, because I think that's the one that led me to being looked at last year. That play right there really labeled me," Wilfork said. "They told me and showed me what they were thinking. They looked at how long the ball was out [of Losman's hands] and my elbow. I could understand that and I said, 'The last thing I want is for you to judge me as a dirty player. That's not me.' I think I got through to them, but at the same time, I understand what they're thinking about.​

    Saying that he can understand why someone would fine him is different than him saying he committed a "cheap shot."

    A high school newspaper writer could see the difference. Chris Mortensen can't. Another football media titan showing how little you have to work to maintain your position in the business.

    Goodell's "Toolness" is not a surprise. He exposed it last season.

    re: Mrs Wilfork's DVD saved Vince from suspension (merged)

    Actually, this makes sense. If you paid attention to the language used by the league office in reference to the fine, they never stated that the fine was for that particular hit, but rather for a pattern of behavior that often jeopardizes the safety of the rest of the players around him.
    But I highly doubt Vince admitted that the Losman hit was a cheap shot, as he and Belichick have staunchly defended it since it happened.

    Apparently not. Unless you believe Wilfork is a liar.
