  1. Thank you! I was trying to click the other person's name.
  2. i've seen people mention an ignore feature for certain posters, but I can't find it. Could someone tell me how to use it if it does exist? Thanks.
  3. YOU are out of line. I have said right along that they can't complain too much because they gave Goodell all of the power. I think that was a mistake on the NFLPA's part. I don't know why you think it's ok to pick a fight with me.
  4. You are replying to someone who is not me. My only point is that I haven't decided whether I think Vilma deserves a 1 year suspension based on what I know.
  5. He had a very busy year a few years ago - all of his kids seem to be 3 years old.
  6. yes, but it's hard when the cast of characters changes on you like with your sister in law. Wouldn't it be nice to all be self-employed. Anyway, I think the union needs to concern itself with fairness as well as health and safety issues. It's a basic responsibility of a union. however, in this case the union is in a tricky spot because they represent both the accused and the victims. Very tight rope to walk. Maybe it's good that Vilma is going outside the process and getting his own representation - takes the fight away from NFL vs. NFLPA which I'm sure we've all had enough of.
  7. I dont' get HBO either and have only seen clips, but I hear it's always very good.
  8. My union doesn't prevent me from being laid off for economic reasons. It helps protect me from unfair termination or being replaced by my new boss' nephew or something.
  9. Seems like TE isn't a need there though. Albert Breer‏@AlbertBreer RT @shalisemyoung another former Colt was in Foxborough - via league source, TE Dallas Clark visited Tuesday
  10. Adam Schefter‏@AdamSchefter S Yeremiah Bell to the Jets 1 year deal $1.4mil, including a $200,000 sign bonus.
  11. What I hear all of the players say is that if you play the game cleanly and someone gets hurt, that's just a part of the game. If you purposely try to injure someone, that's where the line is crossed. If hard, clean hits are rewarded that's different than being rewarded because someone got carted off. Now, if he's guilty of paying specifically for cart offs or for injuries, then I agree with the punishment. I'm just keeping my mind open to the possibility that he didn't pay for injuries or pay more for injuries.
  12. I agree that the players should have met with Goodell and they should have not signed off on the discipline part of the CBA. That's why I'm not going to go on a rant about their rights or anything. I'm just not convinced that Vilma is "more guilty" than anyone else and deserves the harshest sentence shy of Greg Williams. I hear all of the players saying there's a difference between hurting other players and injuring other players. A 1 year suspension needs to clearly come down on the side of paying for injury.
  13. That's why I'm happy to be in a union. The players are in a union. They just shouldn't have given up this right. Concentrated too much on money in negotiations and not enough on these issues. Ultimately, I can't feel too bad for the players, because they signed off on the deal giving him that power.
  14. The are going to have to give up on Hard Knocks. No one seems to want to do it. Maybe no one wants to follow in the Jets footssteps. I would think the Colts might be interesting, but I never think it's a team's best interest to do it - reveals too much and causes people to play things up for the cameras.
  15. Also, if the public and Vilma aren't allowed to see the the evidence because someone is being protected, I get that. But, there should be a mechanism for an arbitrator to then review the evidence. I don't know what the NFLPA was thinking in not fighting for an appeal process that doesn't go right back to Goodell. I would think Sean Payton, etc... wish there was a different process as well.
  16. I would like to know what the evidence is before I decide whether 1 year is appropriate or not. He would have to have specific proof that Vilma paid for injury (and not just for good plays) for me to think that 1 year is appropriate. I would like to know if there's a money trail and not just word of mouth. Big talk is one thing and actually carrying it out is another. I would like to know if the players were warned to knock it off or if that message from the league never carried down.
  17. Apparently, he gave the ring to his son who has put it up for auction. Jay Glazer‏@JayGlazer LT wasn't aware at all that his son had put it up for auction. However, he had no problem with it bc he feels they are now his sons property
  18. He's not known for good decision making skills.
  19. Has anyone considered that he might not have done what he's accused of? No one but Goddell has seen the evidence. If nothing else, the lawsuit might force the documents to be released. I think the Vilma punishment was too harsh. Suspending a player for a year is much worse than suspending a coach for a year based on length of career. The coaches were warned to knock off the program - the players weren't given a direct warning from the league. Who knew if they even knew that the league was investigating. He's also very specific claiming he never paid for injury. That's different than saying he never paid. If he never paid for injury, 1 year suspension is too long. If he did - Goddell needs to show the evidence.
