Saints Bounty Scandal: Arbitrator Rules In Favor of NFL

While the full details have yet to be released, it appears that arbitrator Steve Burbank has ruled in favor of the league in the New Orleans Saints bounty case.

The four players suspended in the bounty case are Jonathan Vilma, Will Smith, Scott Fujita and Anthony Hargrove.

Separate from this is a grievance filed before arbitrator Shyam Das that questions whether the NFL can suspend players for actions that took place before the new CBA was signed.
