Fujita attends Wednesday’s bounty hearing


Two weeks ago, Browns linebacker Scott Fujita and Packers defensive end Anthony Hargrove personally attended the hearing on one of two grievances filed in opposition to the suspensions imposed on Fujita, Hargrove, Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma, and Saints defensive end Will Smith.

PFT has confirmed that Fujita attended Wednesday hearing regarding the other grievance.  Steve Wyche of NFL Network first reported Fujita’s presence.

Hargrove possibly opted not to attend because Wednesday’s hearing focuses on the argument that Special Master Stephen Burbank has exclusive jurisdiction over any alleged salary-cap violations.  Since Hargrove apparently wasn’t suspended for funding the bounty pool, Wednesday’s grievance has far less relevance to him personally.

There’s no timetable for a ruling by Burbank.  He issued a decision on the Cowboys and Redskins salary-cap grievance 11 days after the hearing.

    They removed the cuffs, but left the leg irons on.

    Why not, he has nothing else to do. Maybe he can donate some of his bounty money to that guy who is raising money for the Drew Brees contract?

    I still can’t believe the Packers haven’t dumped Hargove yet.

    People don’t understand what the Commissioner is up against with these concussion lawsuits. It is former players suing the NFL that is making player safety the issue that it is and not Roger Goddell.

    This is damage control to show that the league is doing all it can to address the issue and someone had to be made an example of. In the long run it will help the league to protect itself from draining financial court battles.
