@AlbertBreer As I said on TA, not only was former prosecutor Mary Jo White involved w/the Hargrove/Smith/Vilma meetings, she was the 1 asking most ?s.
@AlbertBreer … And with all three of these cases, what I’ve heard is the bounty meetings went off more like depositions than hearings.

Notes from the Mike Cerullo sworn statement | ProFootballTalk
Over the years, it’s become obvious that the Saints have a problem with disgruntled employees who are motivated to take action against the team. The Saints also have a problem, in our view, in the legal department. The Saints never should have let Cerullo leave without ensuring that he wouldn’t be able to blab later, and the lesson for the Saints and every other NFL team (and every other employer) is to be sure that procedures are in place to spot those employees who know enough to cause trouble later — and to ensure that they legally can share that knowledge only if legally required to do so.

Smith, Hargrove met with NFL on Tuesday, but not Fujita | ProFootballTalk
Since the Browns play the Ravens next Thursday night, Fujita likely won’t be making the trip next Tuesday, either. The next question becomes whether the NFL will delay the eventual appeal hearings before Commissioner Roger Goodell so that all of them can be done at once. If that happens, this dispute may not land back on the bench of Judge Helen G. Berrigan until mid-October, at the earliest.

The ensuing ‘Bounty Gate’ scandal took the New Orleans Saints organization by storm and turned an inspirational franchise into a nightmare. Everyone already knows the casualties of the scandal included Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma. When the NFL handed down his season-long suspension this past offseason, it was a punishment based on symbolism. If the accusations were true, then every player on the Saints would have known or been involved in the scandal, but the league didn’t believe the public could accept punishments against everyone on the Saints organization. On 9/7/12, a Federal Court appeals panel overturned the suspensions of Jonathan Vilma, Will Smith, Scott Fujita and Anthony Hargrove. However, there is no victory for Jonathan Vilma, whose career is hanging on threads .… Read more
