Late last night Mike Florio let us know that Commissioner Roger Goodell could and should make a final ruling on the suspended Bountygate players as early as this morning.

In all fairness to the players, Goodell should rule on Monday morning so that the players can commence the process of attacking the decision in court, which most likely will include a StarCaps-style effort to block the suspensions until the case is resolved.

Like Florio, I most definitely agree that Saints fans should not expect Goodell to do anything but uphold his original suspensions for Jonathan Vilma, Will Smith, Scott Fujita and Anthony Hargrove. The players have done nothing but cry foul and have submitted no evidence in their favor, so Goodell has nothing new to consider.

Thus, an end to the Bountygate drama will finally be in sight.
