Vilma: Goodell Turned Saints Players Into "Media Criminals" With Bounty Investigation
Published November 6, 2012
TAGLIABUE NOT STEPPING ASIDE: ESPN.com’s Chris Mortensen cited sources as saying that former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue "denied a motion to recuse himself as the arbitrator for the appeals hearing" of players disciplined in the bounty scandal. Tagliabue "informed the players' attorneys of his decision, stating he will move forward with establishing a date for the hearing and also formalizing the process on which the appeal will be heard." Sources said discussions of the process will take "a fair amount of time." One source said that the hearing is "scheduled for Nov. 20" (ESPN.com, 11/5).
