NFL Players Association statement on ruling to vacate Saints bounty suspensions

nfl-players-association-400×225The NFL Players Association released the following statement:

We believe that when a fair due process takes place, a fair outcome is the result.

We are pleased that Paul Tagliabue, as the appointed hearings officer, agreed with the NFL Players Association that previously issued discipline was inappropriate in the matter of the alleged New Orleans Saints bounty program.

Vacating all discipline affirms the players’ unwavering position that all allegations the League made about their alleged “intent-to-injure” were utterly and completely false.

We are happy for our members.
