***BREAKING*** Saints linebacker Vilma, suspended for 2012

This might be the last of the penalties handed down from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Just a short while ago, suspensions for four New Orléans Saints football players were handed out by the NFL league office. Linebacker Jonathan Vilma has been suspended for the entire 2012 season, defensive tackle Anthony Hargrove (eight games), defensive end Will Smith (four games), and linebacker Scott Fujita (three games). The suspended players will not be paid for the games that they miss. All of this came after the league suspended head coach Sean Payton for the entire season, and Mickey Loomis and assistant coach Joe Vitt eight games. Don’t forget that former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has been suspended indefinitely and may never be allowed back into the NFL.

This has gone on for nearly two months now. The punishments that have been handed down have been a little harsh in my mind. Vilma was the main defensive cog in all of this and now he is going to have to shoulder the consequences. I don’t agree with the year-round suspension, but it wasn’t my choice.

Maybe the NFL is trying to destroy the Saints? But they should know better.

Not even Hurricane Katrina could destroy this team’s resolve.
