Saints Players Bounty Suspensions Overturned by Appeals Panel: Good for the NFL?

So the "New Orleans Bounty Gate" players are clear to play... and I just picked up Johnathan Vilma on my fantasy team (even though he has a bad knee and won't play right away.) The full year suspension penalty to Vilma seemed a bit harsh, but getting no punishment means getting away with the murder of Brett Favre (so to speak.) Is it good for the NFL that the ruling was overturned?
A three-member appeals panel has overturned the player suspensions in the Saints bounty case. The panel overturned a ruling by NFL system arbiter Stephen Burbank that commissioner Roger Goodell was within his powers under the collective bargaining agreement to suspend four players for their alleged roles in a pay to injure system.
