Player penalties handed down for New orleans Saints bounty scandal, Jonathan Vilma out entire 2012 season

The NFL has handed out penalties stemming from the New Orleans Saints “bounty scandal.” As promised, Commissioner Goodell came out swinging.

Scott Fujita, whose currently with the Browns, suspended three games, Anthony Hargrove suspended eight games, Will Smith suspended four games, Jonathan Vilma suspended for the entire season.

“It is the obligation of everyone, including the players on the field, to ensure that rules designed to promote player safety, fair play, and the integrity of the game are adhered to and effectively and consistently enforced,” Goodell said in the league’s statement. “Respect for the men that play the game starts with the way players conduct themselves with each other on the field.”

Did I mention these suspensions are without pay? Thoughts on his ruling?
