If the commissioner had really asked for the video, he would've made it very public & very clear that the casino refused to give it to him. — Jonathan Vilma (@JonVilma51) September 10, 2014
I know firsthand the commissioner will go to great lengths to "gather all evidence" but he purposely did not in this instance. Appalling. — Jonathan Vilma (@JonVilma51) September 10, 2014
He should be held accountable for his lack of action just like Ray Rice has finally been held accountable for his actions. — Jonathan Vilma (@JonVilma51) September 10, 2014
The firsthand knowledge Vilma refers to is presumably related to Goodell's investigation into the New Orleans Saints bounty controversy. Vilma was suspended for one year as a part of the investigation, but had his punishment overturned on appeal.
Vilma played in only one game for the Saints last season due to injury. He was released in February and has not signed with another team.
