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

What were the Patriots docked for the spygate thing?
If this happened to us the NFL would have taken our entire draft and Patrick Willis.

That's a stupid ass statement man. I don't think you know how the 49ers conduct business by making such stupid statements.

i didn't say the org is doing it. but if you don't think it's happening at some level, you're naive. especially on a defense that is known for knocking players the f out.

it's like people who want to pretend 90% of the nfl isn't on roids or hgh. it's there, if you don't think so then you're just living in denial.
Did Drew Brees know about this? What about Reggie Bush? The conspiracy continues...

The most amazing thing about the Saints bounty system is millionaire athletes jeopardizing player safety and their own franchise for $1000.
$Aints
Very amazing for millionaires to jeapardize it for $1000. Like somone offering an average Joe a dollar to do something highly underhanded and illegal at work.


Just goes to show - there are a lot of DUMB millionares in pro sports.

Yup.

Just like Spygate, the naive fans are going to act all shocked and outraged, when the reality is most teams do it.
They were investigated for a whole year? Slowest investigation everrrrr.

The NFL says it has fined Bill Belichick the NFL maximum of $500,000, the Patriots $250,000 and ordered the team to give up next year's first-round draft choice (if it reaches the playoffs) because New England spied on the Jets defensive signals. If the Patriots don't make the playoffs they have to give up second- and third-round picks in April.

There is talk that Williams and Payton could be suspended for a large chunk of the season, if not barred for an entire year, both of them will be fined the maximum allowable amount, a similar punishment will be handed to GM Mickey Loomis and their was even more talking head chatter that they could lose the ability to franchise tag a player so X amount of years, plus multiple draft picks(I'd argue every 1st, 2nd, 3rd round choice for the next 3 years. Same duration as the violation). This will be the NFL equivalent of the Death Penalty, especially with the overemphasis on head injuries and overall player safety. Don Banks on SI said that if this was the NCAA the saints would lose their super bowl title as well.

You are crazy if you thinks thats true

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.


If this blows up to front page news, the NFL will have no option but to be harsh in response. It is a PR nightmare for NFL to have the image of a bunch of thug hitmen getting paid to put people in the hospital.
