Vilma - 2012 season  

Will Smith - Suspended without pay for first 4 games.

Fujita (with Cleveland) - Suspended without pay for first 3 games.

Anthony Hargrove (with Green Bay) - Suspended without pay for the first 8 games.

My guess the punishment here is at least twice as harsh is it would have been if they haven't lied to the Commish.

I actually think the punishment fits the crime.  To lose a year off an NFL career is financially ruinous, no doubt--but not as damaging as an unnecessary life-long injury.  It sends a clear message throughout the league that this type of cro magnon behavior has no place in the modern game.

I'm probably in the minority on this one.  However, I really don't want players intentionally maimed for my entertainment.  Injury is unavoidable, of course, and is, as everyone accepts, part of the game; however, what the Saints pulled was pure garbage. 

From a bettor's perspective, there ought to be some decent fade opportunities as the season wears on.

darn around and pay the punishment. Call it extreme if you want but the commish is trying to lay the law and has been pretty consistent in doing so.

Bottom line is do not darn around and if you do and get busted than do not lie about it or else deal with the repercussions.
