Tagliabue voids Saints bounty suspensions

The NFL announced Tuesday that former commissioner Paul Tagliabue has ruled to “vacate” the suspensions of the New Orleans Saints players in the bounty scandal.

“The players have been allowed to play while appeals are pending, though Scott Fujita is on injured reserve and Hargrove is not with a team,” the NFL posted on the organization’s website. “Shortly before the regular season, the initial suspensions were vacated by an appeal panel created by the league’s collective bargaining agreement. Goodell then reissued them with some modifications. Meanwhile, the players have challenged the NFL’s handling of the entire process in federal court.”

    This was nothing but a vendetta by Goodell because he failed to get money from the Who-Dat phrase. I don't agree with a bounty from any team but the Saints didn't invent this, it has been around as long as football and for any team to say they never took part of it is a lier plane and simple
