Players, Media React To Tagliabue's "Stunning" Bounty Ruling
Published December 11, 2012
NFL Network's Albert Breer reports that Vilma's lawyer, Peter Ginsberg, said, "Jonathan intends to continue to pursue the defamation lawsuit in order to reclaim his reputation. We’re pleased that the unjust penalties have been overturned, but this is only one piece in remedying the situation for Jonathan" (TWITTER.com, 12/11).
Saints QB Drew Brees wrote on his Twitter feed, "Congratulations to our players for having the suspensions vacated. Unfortunately, there are some things that can never be taken back." Forbes.com's Alicia Jessop tweeted, "The precedent handed down by Tagliabue is something like this: Players, if your coach tells you to do something wrong & you do it, it's ok." SI's Jim Trotter: "If y'all think Roger Goodell ain't going to do something to flex his muscle after being smacked down by Tagliabue, you don't know him." ESPN Radio 1500 Twin Cities’ Tom Pelissero: "Tagliabue pinned the blame where it should have been in the first place."
