Fujita See His Punishment As A Smear Campaign

 Former New Orleans Saints and current Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita has been suspended the first 3 games of the 2012 regular season for his alleged role in “bountygate.”

Fujita, who is an appointed NFLPA union leader, has critized the NFL front office and Commissioner Roger Goodell in the past for things such as concussion studies and player safety.

Fujita’s former Saints teammate Scott Shanle believes the NFL is attempting to paint Fujita as a hypocrite on player-safety matters. Why? Because Fujita has done the same thing to the league. The only difference is the credibility of evidence Fujita has, whereas the league’s evidence up to this point is certainly lacking.

Many of Fujita’s former and current teammates question whether the NFL’s punishment of Scott is retribution.

Once one learns more about Fujita’s past, as well as the current evidence the league has against him, many would question if the NFL is indeed conducting a “smear campaign” against the former Saints captain.
