The 2012 NFL season, the 93rd regular season of the National Football League, is set to begin Wednesday, September 5, 2012, and will end with Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday, February 3, 2013, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
Here are some of the legitimate ways to watch NFL games beyond those available on over-the-air broadcasts and basic cable:
•With the software(the best way):
Watch online now: Satellite Direct.
•Many games are offered through the NFL Network channel. You can order this from your cable or satellite provider. This channel carries all the preseason games, weekly season games and hosts the popular show, NFL Total Access. It also includes “NFL Replay,” which offers the five best games of the week.
•For a free but legitimate viewing option, check out Hulu‘s NFL page online. You can watch past games, highlights and interviews. Just look under your favorite team’s name or in the Game of the Week section.
In my opinion, to say the Saints' players were doing exactly what is done throughout the league is probably true. To say they were paying each other to intentionally injure opposing players is likely not true. But the bottom line is that without proof or evidence, the players can't be punished. These suspensions were being used to set an example and to scare other NFL players. However, they were also damaging the character and the names of the those who were singled out.
Of course this likely will not end here. Goodell can still rule again and can still attempt to suspend the players for multiple games. Meanwhile, Vilma has a defamation suit pending that will continue to linger over the season until it is settled.
As a Saints fan, I am happy to see justice prevail here, at least for now. This was the right decision for a number of reasons. It will be good to see the defense at full strength soon, and hopefully this controversy can soon be a thing of the past.
Added Fujita: "I'm overwhelmed with all the support. Thank you so much everyone. Can't tell you how much it means to me."
The ruling does not affect New Orleans coach Sean Payton, suspended for the season, interim coach Joe Vitt (six games) or general manager Mickey Loomis (eight games).
While the panel did not address the merits of the NFL's bounty investigation, it found that Goodell overstepped his authority in hearing the players' appeals of their punishments for participating in the Saints bounty program, which paid cash bonuses for hits that injured opponents.
The panel's decision states that Special Master Stephen Burbank, not Goodell, should discipline players for receiving money from a pool that paid for big plays. Goodell's role, the panel said, should be limited to whether he can prove the players intended to injure opponents, which would fall in the category of conduct detrimental to the game. Players and coaches implicated in the bounty pool have testified under oath in a related federal court case they never intended to injure opposing players.
Being the opponent at the Giants' Super Bowl banner raising celebration should supply the Cowboys with all the motivation they need to dominate on Wednesday.
Confidence is a major part of the current Cowboys team, and for Tony Romo to have the most confidence throughout the season, he has to lead the team to some early wins. An uphill battle towards a playoff spot is not the scenario the Cowboys want to find themselves in late in the year.
Six of the last seven meetings have been decided by less than 14 points, and the Giants are 4-2 in those matchups. The Cowboys need to prove that they can win close games against top competition, especially in the division. If you cannot win close games, you're not a Super Bowl-worthy team.
Even though it's a long season, the Cowboys need to win their season opener against the Giants. The outcome of this game will set the tone for the rest of Dallas' season, which is currently one full of promise.
