Jim Trotter ‏@SI_JimTrotter Decision says Goodell can reconsider discipline only if there is evidence of intent to injure beyond just a performance pool, per source.

In other words..Goodell is a dumbass?

coaches were warned multiple times by nfl and did not stop

players were never warned
Well I dont want to see Hagans get suspended for a DUI now.....if you can try to hurt players and get off free then all should be ok
So...bounties are legal now?
But I said this all along that there was no evidence that you could pinpoint on the field on video that could clearly connect the words spoken, money collected, and actions on the field leading to a payout. Talk is cheap but the action is on the field and as a 49er fan, I could not see 1 instance of an illegal hit with intent to injure by a Saint player in our playoff matchup regardless of what Greg Williams was saying.

As for the administration of the "bounty pool", who is to say whether the coaches or players ran the thing? The league just had too much burden of proof if it were a real court of law. You gotta connect documentation of evidence of bounty set and the particular play of intent that led to injury to discipline players in that manner. Pranks, wagers, fighting, and all kinds of crazy talk happen inside NFL locker rooms, but the refs are supposed to administer justice on the field and the league as far as fines and suspensions for infractions as they occur. If you come after the fact with discipline, you bear the burden of proof. The cameras don't lie.

It should however, have been easy enough to tie someone to the Brett Favre situation. That game seemed to be one played by savages. Just brutal what they did to Favre. It was like they were trying to knock him outta the game.

Haggans was irresponsible in endangering others lives driving while intoxicated and that is unacceptable. However, if you feel that your child is endangered, then you would probably take that risk. Tough call, so I think it comes down to his past history and his demonstration of character. I am hoping he doesn't miss time and the league lets the law enforcement deal with the situation
I don't want to hear another player crying over safety ever again.
