Appeals hearings underway for Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma

Suspended Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma is calling his suspension appeal unfair.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell began appeals hearing in the Saints bounty case for the four suspended players.

The NFLPA said “The documentation, which includes ledgers of payouts, power-point slides can hardly be characterized as hard evidence.”

The NFL laid-out much of its case against all four suspended players claiming handwritten notes and computerized records prove the saints ran a bounty program.

Vilma says he doesn’t know how he can get a fair hearing when commissioner Goodell is “judge, jury and executioner.”

The NFL’s bounty evidence includes some 200 pages of documents with emails, power-point presentations and handwritten notes.
