Saints Nation: Here's a Picture Guaranteed to Make You Sick | May

Daily Special, May 8, 2012 - Who Dat Social Club
I’ve believed all along that Payton, Williams, Loomis, and Vitt played along knowing they’d never work in the NFL again if they didn’t. It was, essentially, a plea bargain, further conditioned by a deep-seated loyalty to the NFL that goes way beyond what they might think about the present commissioner. But if the players aren’t going to let themselves be railroaded, and if the official story starts blowing up, and it begins to look more likely that speaking up and standing up for themselves may work better than laying low and kissing ass, then Roger Goodell’s ass may be starved for kisses from here on in.

Standard player contract opens up another potential avenue for legal challenge | ProFootballTalk

"We had a pot for big plays, the same thing everyone else in the league has, now they call them pay-for-performance. But we never paid for dirty hits," Vitt said. "I'll say it again, the exact same thing I told the commissioner, our players never crossed the white lines with an intent to maim or injure. They never threatened the integrity of the game when they crossed the white lines."
