If you follow this site, as well as most other NFL sites, you saw the big news development regarding Jonathan Vilma. In case you didn’t, he sued commissioner Roger Goodell in federal court in the state of Louisiana, the complaint being defamation of character. The former Jets linebacker claims that the commissioner made defamatory statements about him during the “BountyGate” investigation.

My response? Sour grapes!

You know the type of kid that, when he gets in trouble with a teacher, goes to the principal and says that the teacher is going after him for no reason? That’s what we have going on here, ladies and gentlemen.
