Well, good to see there's players that balance Harrison & Co. out (if maybe a bit passive-aggressively):

First off, the NFLPA's in a tough spot. Vilma and the others deserve the right to an appeal; while I agree with the commissioner's decision others may not, and that's fine, this is America. However, the union has to simultaneously balance defending four guys against the judgement of Goodell (which needs oversight, make no mistake) while at the same time recognizing those four guys were attempting to harm other union members, who also deserve that same protection. The union cannot be just about appeals when someone does something wrong. It also has to be a shield for those men who are a part of it that you never hear about, but pay the same dues and play the same game. I can only hope that the leadership of the NFLPA realizes this, and acts in *all* of its members' interests, however that takes place.

Absolutely! They keep that lab right next to the trophy case housing Brady's post-op manhood. Having robbed him of that twice now.

TAMPA, Fla. -- In a symbolic gesture, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Rutgers defensive tackle Eric LeGrand, whose playing career was ended by a spinal cord injury, on Wednesday morning.

LeGrand played for Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano at Rutgers. In a game Oct. 16, 2010, against Army, LeGrand suffered fractures of two vertebrae and a spinal cord injury.

Schiano called LeGrand's mother in New Jersey to let her know of his intention the night before breaking the news to his former player.

"I said, 'Are you serious? You want to do this?' He said: 'It's the least we could do,' " LeGrand said Wednesday during a conference call. "I said, 'I don't even know what to say to you right now, Coach. This is amazing.'

"It's something I always dreamed about, go to the NFL and retire and become a sportscaster," LeGrand added. "Dreams do come true if you really believe. You do the right things in life, good things happen to you. He really just did this out of the kindness of his heart. It's really what he wanted to do. I had no idea this was going to happen."

LeGrand initially was told he would be a quadriplegic and would have to remain on a ventilator.

Five weeks later, LeGrand began breathing on his own. Later, he became able to stand upright with the aid of a metal frame.

LeGrand resumed his studies in spring 2011. He led the Scarlet Knights onto the field for an Oct. 29, 2011, game and has remained close with Schiano.

"Leading up to the draft, I couldn't help but think that this should've been Eric's draft class," Schiano said. "This small gesture is the least we could do to recognize his character, spirit and perseverance. The way Eric lives his life epitomizes what we are looking for in Buccaneer Men."

The Buccaneers also decided to make the signing May 2, to represent LeGrand's college number (52).

He put up a photo of a Tampa Bay helmet on his Twitter page, tweeting, "We ready!!!"

"It's a symbolic gesture. They can't give me any money with the salary cap and all that kind of stuff," LeGrand said in his conference call. "It's symbolic, something Coach wanted to do and I appreciate that. It just shows the man that he is."

LeGrand is planning to graduate this fall with a degree in labor studies.

Props to bucs and Schiano. Good football story on a day with a really sad one.

White reviewed the findings of the league's internal investigations (one in early 2010, and a renewed investigation early this year) and reportedly told the league its case is solid.

I admit I don't have showtime but Luck, Game of Thrones, Treme and Boardwalk Empire are good shows......Luck especially, may it rest in peace. The Newsroom looks like its gonna be a good one as well.

I don't know how you can describe HBO as tired though......they take more risks and give big money to those risks and original ideas than any other network by far.

I think Brees needs to ask for an ownership stake in the Saints or leave town at this point. I'm sure some other coach out there doesn't mind stat whoring a bit.

Yeah not looking good for our players.

Though, I guess the reactions are pretty much expected. Shame our organization didn't listen the first time Rog told me to cut it out.

Still I think, as is the case with a lot of goodells punishments, hes inconsistent at best.

Guys like Suh deliberately stomp on people and get 3 games. The belicheats literally cheat to win a superbowl and get a wrist slapping but the saints who had a bounty program - which is awful - but yet the results on the field stemming from that never indicated the players participating broke any NFL rules in pursuit of those bounties. Or committed anything blatantly illegal in terms of game rules......and that goes for all the people who point to those playoff games where, if you remember correctly, the refs NEVER called penalties against the saints for those QB hits. They were hits completely within the rules and passed the judgement of the officials.

I think even the most ardent saints haters should acknowledge the high probability that the severity of these punishments have at least some to do with PR and image due to the pending lawsuits and media coverage of player injuries than them being justified based on past NFL penalties for rule breaking.

You act like our team is a crumbling mess that is going to go 3-13 this year and into the future.

We have one of the best play callers in the league(although he won't be there this year), a great offensive line and offensive weapons. A very good defensive coordinator and for intents and purposes have acquired MORE talent on that side then we had last season.

Unless the FO is stupid enough to not come to a reasonable compromise, why the fuck would he leave?

When you already have millions of dollars and a Superbowl win you start caring more about your legacy. Does he want to be associated with all this mess?
