New Orleans linebacker Jonathan Vilma, who was suspended for the entire 2012 season due to Bountygate, is suing commissioner Roger Goodell for defamation, saying he made false public statements against Vilma that have tarnished his reputation and may make it hard for him to earn a living playing professional football again, or doing anything after he leaves the NFL.
Good luck with that. I imagine Vilma will have a hard time convincing anyone that Goodell was out of line.

If you want to discuss a playoff system, then we can talk. If not... I'm a huge college football fan, and I know that preseason rankings are largely a joke. (How can you justify putting us at 16 in the ESPN preseason poll when we went 8-5 last year?)
