Saints ran a 'Bounty' Program - Now with 100% More Suspensions!

Williams left New Orleans before the scandal broke, running to join Jeff Fisher in St. Louis. Now Payton is gone for a year, probably never to return to the Saints. He can't come back. Not after this. Without their genius play-caller and the man who burned so much to win, the Saints are done as a Super Bowl contender. What good is Drew Brees without the man who made him one of the league's best quarterbacks? Slowly the great offensive machine collapses. A football darkness falls in New Orleans again.


Link? I'd be surprised if Payton didn't come back. He's too good not to. But either way, their OC Pete Carmichael is supposed to be pretty good too. I think their owner will probably cash out for Brees btw, he doesn't really have a choice. It's his only way to do damage control.
Who dat gonna coach them Saints. lol

Maybe they were....
Seriously though, I was hearing that some anonymous person from another team paid a bounty to knockout Rodger for them
there are too many hypocrites in football. the saints did not incur any more penalties, fines, or suspensions than any other team in the nfl during that period for illegal hits on the football field. that should say a lot. if there was excessive contact or any illegal cheap shots taken then the zebras on the field were supposed to throw laundry in the grass, put players out of the game, and the NFL should have fined and/or suspended them. that hasn't happened in the league's case until now. and that is due to politics. they are trying to put on a caring face to say "hey mean hits are not allowed in our league it is against our rules so please former players don't sue us". i am an old head football fan and i want to see hard hits and big plays and i believe that is why they pay footballers the big bucks. the only thing the saints did wrong was by putting up money for those big plays they violated the nfl policy towards player compensation. but to go out and say "imma tell mr goodell on u saints because u hit too mean" is straight BS. Now if williams told his players to break em up and i will pay u and that is what happened, then i agree it is bad for the game. but the film and the flags on the field do not show where the saints did anything but play vicious, hard hitting, physical and mostly legal defensive football. i am all for that because we do the same except our guys for the most part try to ease up when tackling to make the play but avoid injury. but i don't want goodell turning the game into an offensive, flag football game for his own political reasons. gonna have grown men playing football pouting and finger pointing because someone hit too mean. just like the crap they pull against james harrison. its football and everyone should b hit including the qb, excluding the kicker
as for the patriots, what they did was worse because they cheated other teams out of their super bowls. but just as the saints hit mean, i believe our guys as grown men are supposed to do, responded and hit even meaner and made more big plays and we won the game. and we did not have to whine to mr goodell to do it. we brought our hats just as the saints brought theirs. our hats were bigger so u can't cheat that. but hiding in the bushes, camera behind the gatorade cooler, steve spielberg directed, HD video footage of your calls, signals, and playbook so as to gain a competitive edge is hideous and a much bigger offense to me. hit me hard but don't cheat u pus$y

you're missing the point

yes football is a violent game and injury is a part of it
ask any DE what their job is and he will tell you to kill the qb

it's a part of the game and it always will be but the bounty program crossed the line from many standpoints
this has been going on for two years

when asked to stop they proceeded, when asked about it they lied, when asked to give information they covered it up

that is why Goodell came down so hard not because of the physical part so much as the lied to my face about the whole thing isn't going to cut it part

BINGO! RT @elnicastro: Shockey..? RT QBKILLA: Just Heard Who The Snitch Was




Greg A. Bedard ‏ @GregABedard
The NFL should fire -- or at least suspend -- @QBKilla immediately for his Shockey comments.
Haha...Sapp calls him a snitch. Sounds like he's angry because he was probably involved in bounty injuries when he played, too.

He probably got paid for taking out jerry rice

The part you're missing is the Saints probably get off with no punishment if they stop after the initial inquiry. The fact that they were told several times to stop, continued for 3 more years, lied about it, and tried to cover it up is why they were punished like they were. I've been reading Saints boards since this came out, and that's the common theme almost none of them seem to grasp. They think this is Goodell trying to dumb down the game and get hard hits out. That's not the case, and you can tell by how much he emphasized the team and coaching staff lied about everything in his press conference.

They were penalized this hard because of the coverup and constant lies.

I remember that horrible day.
We shouldn't have been running a reverse play with Rice in the first place.

Stupid Mooch!
Now that Kommissioner Goodell has Dropped a SERIOUS



I thought I'd post this, to compliment the "Musings from divisional message boards" thread in Niner Talk. The links below, will direct you to the Official, and Fan-based websites of teams in the NFC South. I thought it would be interesting -- to those of us following the aforementioned "Musings thread" -- to read the posts of fans in the NFC South; about the penalties ... and how the rulings will impact their division etc, going forward and into the upcoming season.
