Saints player Jonathan Vilma, the most vocal opponent of Goodell’s decision, due to sit out the entire year appealed the ruling and now a court has sided with Vilma and the other players.

Saints coach Sean Payton (suspended the entire season) general manager Mickey Loomis (suspended 8 games), and interim coach Joe Vitt (suspended 6 games) is unaffected by the ruling.
