Just saw the recent news that Joe Vitt is willing to take a lie detector test in order to prove that he never contributed to the Brett Favre bounty pool.
"In the recent information released by the NFL to the NFLPA, and later to the media, there is an allegation made against me that is completely untrue and I cannot let it go unchallenged."
"I did not pledge any money for any type of incentive program pertaining to the 2010 NFC Championship game. Furthermore, I have never at any time pledged any money for any type of incentive program, or so-called ‘bounty' program."
"Today I had a great conversation with the Commissioner and stated I would sign a sworn affidavit to this fact, or make myself available to take a lie detector, to immediately rectify this matter," Vitt said. "Also it cannot be emphasized enough, none of our players, particularly those who are facing suspensions, ever crossed the white line with the intent to injure an opponent. I am proud of our players and stand behind them 100% and will do whatever I can to help restore their good names."
I think that's a swell idea. And, hey, since we're passing around the polygraph, why don't we put those little fingertip thingies on the Commissioner and have Roger Goodell take a test, too! He's got nothing to hide, right? He's the good guy in this entire scandal, trying to do what's best for the players and their safety, right?
I say lie detector tests for everyone! Let's get some real answers and put this godamned issue to f***ing bed already. For the love of all things holy.
Just for funsies, what questions would you ask Goodell if he was hooked up to a polygraph?
Would you want to see Roger Goodell take a lie detector test?
