It’s clear if you follow sports and lately in particular the NFL that the current dispute of the New Orleans Saints bounty will be the first of it’s kind to potentially challenge the Sherman Anti-Trust law that currently protects major sports leagues such as the NFL from normal criminal proceedings.

By following the current drama one can see that the NFL has finally, in it’s haste to keep a lid on the bounty situation, gone too far in its authority and comments about individual papers. Judge Jerrigan has shown and I believe it will bear out that people should be careful what they say, especially about other people. Mr. Vilma has chosen to fight in the courts to protect his image and I salute him for that.
