The NFL wanting to believe him is an assumption.
So yes I will say the NFL lawyers tried to rip his story but not for the purposes of not wanting or wanting to believe him but to cover their own asses.
This is the most lucrative sport in the country. You really dont think the lawyers wouldn't make sure they covered their bases because you think that they had some imaginary axe to grind with the Saints?

That sounds very plausible. I really don't think the league would make a deal, but I could see them implying it it might. But, that still doesn't mean that Cerullo didn't sound desperate and wanted to get back at Vitt.

Obviously they didn't because they have already got several things wrong. Let's wait and see what else they missed on. It is all speculation at this point. Got to run to a phone conference! Later!

He did sohnd desperate and his reasons for presenting the evidence may have been shallow.
But using his character to dispute his story is purely lawyer talk and understandably so, because thats his job.

The supposed $10,000 was public knowledge and may have been a part of a Williams motivational ploy as we (minus you, of course) discussed days ago.
Typical. You can't really explain anything so you just spin and claim it's old news and something you've already proven and dismissed.
There's so much crap in this thread that you haven't proven or explained away and yet have dismissed it as if you have. Actually, that pretty much sums up this entire thread.
I'm just bringing up things you continually spin out of context or ignore or manipulate to suit your biased argument. And I'll continue to bring them up because you're being disingenuous with your retorts and purposely misinterpreting countless topics and then acting like that's the end of it and you've nominated yourself winner of that topic.
Disingenuous is the perfect description for you.
By the way, this didn't blow over in a couple weeks. Losing Peyton clearly did matter. Spags isn't better than Nolan. Your defense didn't improve, in fact your defense may go down as the worst in history before it's all done. Brees holdout and contract clearly effected your team. And you were wrong about going 12-4. You're 2-5 and your team is terrible.
I bet if I took the time to go back to page 1 and re-read this thread, I could probably list out a couple dozen more things you've claimed that ended up wrong.

No, they are using this email and his character to get access to him as a witness. The league has been fighting giving them access to Cerullo.

Except that the NFL hasn't "already got several things wrong". You have spun everything to make it sound like they have and claimed a ton of assumption as fact in the process while at the same time completely ignoring anything that makes your side appear wrong.
The fact you think ALL the wrong and ALL the lies are on one side of this and your side is angelically innocent and truthful and 100% victims in this massive conspiracy of ineptness is just beyond delusional.
I mean the convenience of your contentions just doesn't exist in reality. Ever. Never in history has this much convenience supposedly proven a conspiracy of this magnitude. And yet you are drowning in convenience and not for one second acknowledging it. That's just so crazy.
This thread is a hundred pages full of you simply rationalizing away hundreds of topics that you believe you're 100% correct and everyone else is 100% wrong. I can't imagine living in a world where I thought that was reasonable and realistic.
