NFL commissoner Roger Goodell is under attack

Ed Daniels' ED-itorial

Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma has, through his lawyer, denied all of the allegations against him in the Saints bounty scandal.

Former Saint and now Cleveland Brown Scott Fujita says he will tell his side of the story soon.

Goodell been almost dictatorial in his punishment, according to his many critics. He says once the appeals process is over he will release the evidence.

For the all Goodell haters: let's play devil's advocate. Can you imagine the commissioner of the most powerful sports league in the country suspending a head coach and a player for a year , without evidence?

Such a thing to me is nonsensical.

Why would Goodell risk his reputation - and the league's - and take such drastic action if it were totally unwarranted? It doesn't add up. So, in the meantime, we await the evidence.
