Nobody from the league office thought to call the guy they were suspending for the season? It's not like Roger Goodell had to dial him up. An intermediary could have channeled the information through the Saints or an agent or someone.

Vilma did what he did and deserves punishment for it. But surely he should be told about his ban and loss of $3.3 million from the people who enacted it and not on a television show.

Not in Goodell's NFL. That's where you get a bear hug for getting drafted and stabbed in the back when you screw up.
