The agent for Anthony Hargrove took a pre-hearing shot against the NFL and commissioner Roger Goodell in a statement emailed to The Associated Press on Sunday, agent Phil Williams questions why the NFL has released evidence “strategically” and not fully sharing.
Others have complained however, the NFL has stated it was not required to release all evidence.
Cleveland's Scott Fujita, and current Saints Jonathan Vilma and Will Smith have their appeal hearings scheduled before NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Monday.
Friday was marked by two major Louisiana officials’ resignations and one revenue policy reversal.
On Friday, the Secretary of Revenue, Cynthia Bridges, one of the only people within the Bobby Jindal administration with real institutional knowledge of Louisiana government, abruptly resigned.
One of my NFL heroes was George Young, the legendary GM of the New York Giants. Young drafted such stars as QB Phil Simms and LB Lawrence Taylor, and he hired Bill Parcells as head coach and Ernie Accorsi as his assistant who would later succeed George and forge his own record of Super Bowl winners. But George Young's most endearing quality was that he never considered himself anything more than the history teacher he was back at City College High School in his native Baltimore.
Suspended linebacker, New Orleans Saints, Jonathan Vilma had this to say, on twitter, early Saturday morning:
@JonVilma51 I hope the media reports the lack of evidence with the same veracity they reported the nonexistent "bounty program"
That we will soon see, on Monday, in fact. Actually, it will be interesting to read, hear and see exactly what they do report.
Without further mention as to what ever happened to Cynthia Bridges, the long-standing Secretary of Revenue, the Jindal administration issued the following statement only a day after a story broke regarding the fate of a ruling upon automobile tax credits that Governor Jindal reportedly did not know anything about.
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has issued a press release in which he itemized legislation that he has signed and bills he has vetoed which includes line-item vetoes of the appropriations bill.
Looking for a job anyone? How about a high-tech position involving visual effects for a Baton Rouge company in the film, TV and commercial production space?
If so, here's perhaps, one for you, courtesy of Louisiana Economic Development:
Who Dat Nation received another jolt Thursday when it learned that their hero-on-sabbatical appeared to take another big step toward tyranny. NFL.com reported that QB Drew Brees will have a grievance hearing June 27 in Philadelphia over his claim that the value of a possible future franchise tag should be higher than what the New Orleans Saints say it is. Who Dats from Ponchatoula to Parley's on Harrison Avenue and environs in between are scratching the fuzz off their noggins at this latest breach of their undying loyalty. Why is their hero acting this way?
President Barack Obama has issued a controversial policy change today on illegal immigration that is beginning to send shockwaves across the nation’s political and ethnic polarities during an election year.
Instead of deporting young illegal immigrant children who have entered this country as children, his administration will begin to give a two-year deferral for people younger than 30 who came to the United States before the age of 16, are not a threat to society and who are productive as students or who served in the military.
In the past week, the Bobby Jindal for Vice President Campaign has moved into hyper drive. More pro-Jindal-as-VP columns have been written, but this time from smart, but seriously misguided, Louisiana conservative columnists.
Incredibly, for a Governor who has spent the past five years constantly traveling the country, he has hit the campaign trail even more in 2012. Every week, he is out of the state raising funds for the GOP, collecting political IOU’s, and establishing his name recognition among that influential power base, top Republican donors. In recent days, he has traveled to Virginia and Illinois and plans to go to West Virginia next week.
