You are crazy if you thinks thats true
I hope they get fined the Maximum amount and lose a 1st round pick this year and a first round pick next year with all coaches involved getting 6 game suspensions

They ended Kurt Warner's career with a blindside hit. Seriously they will pay brutally for this.

wasnt it is own player that did that? I wonder how much that bounty was

Actually he did it to himself, by encouraging this bounty b******t and invoking the universal law of what goes around comes around.

They don't have a first this year but I agree. And we better be scheduled to play them when everyone is suspended

You are crazy if you think it's not true. I can't think of any QB's in the past 20 years that were coddled the way they are.

Edit: Or in the history of the league, now that I'm thinking about it.

The Saints are going to be HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE targets next year by opposing teams.

Guarantee every player they face will have their own bounty program going with themselves.

This has nothing to do with Brady or Manning.

With the leagues direction on concussions and player safety you better believe there is gonna be stiff penalties from this. The Saints will be made an example of, this will not be swept under the rug

Please. Rules like these are only important when they happen to star QB's. Need proof? How about the following:

The previously unheard of "tuck rule" sends the Patriots to the Super Bowl:
http://fifthdown.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/01/11/mike-pereira-no-longer-supports-tuck-rule/

Hell, even Tom thought (knew) it was a fumble:

"It was really a very fortunate call, and the Raiders fans still let me hear about that call. But we took advantage of it and made the plays to win the game."

Peyton Manning didn't like the new umpire alignment, it was later changed:
http://aol.sportingnews.com/nfl/story/2010-09-01/nfl-keeping-umpire-in-backfield-but-tweaking-setup?story-topic-NFL=

What do you think the result of Alex Smith whining about the umpires alignment would be? If you said "nothing" you'd be exactly right.

Tom Brady tears his ACL and MCL, shortly thereafter the rules for tackling QB's are changed:
http://articles.boston.com/2009-03-24/sports/29263608_1_brady-rule-chiefs-safety-bernard-pollard-knee

A rule enforced as a DIRECT result of Tom Brady being injured. Need I say more? Ok, just one more thing. Quote:

"I think all the quarterbacks in this league are critical to what the game is about," said Patriots owner Robert Kraft. "It's like if Peyton Manning were gone for a season, I think the whole NFL suffers, the same way the NFL suffered with Tommy out. So whatever we can do to protect quarterbacks and to minimize the opportunity of them being taken out with a year-ending injury I would support. "It's not good for the league. What makes it special is special players. It's like going to see a great movie and the star isn't in the movie. It's the same principle."

So by Robert Kraft's own admission, star QB's deserve extra protection not because it's the right thing to do, but because it helps protect the NFL's bottom line. Many other rules share a similar history. The NFL rarely gets serious about anything until it happens to one of their darling QB's. History supports that.

Oh yea, and I didn't forget Eli. I'm sure we all remember that every call he needed during the Giants playoff run last season he got. Coincidence? I doubt it.

Edit: Grammar.

see Valrod's comments. You don't get to this point just because of 1 player, this was a big deal.
5. Although head coach Sean Payton was not a direct participant in the funding or administration of the program, he was aware of the allegations, did not make any detailed inquiry or otherwise seek to learn the facts, and failed to stop the bounty program. He never instructed his assistant coaches or players that a bounty program was improper and could not continue.
Take away their 1st rounder. Move us up in the round!! Yesssss
