You just have to know, there are some lawyers working on this right now. Is it a crime to pay someone to physically damage another person? I know people have gone to jail for it, not sure in the sporting world where contact is part of the sport.
If I found out someeone put a bounty on me I'd be out for BIG time vengence. This thing bettter be handled soon or it will get WAY pout of control.
first, the 'kill a guy' bit is this
second, we're already paying people to harm other people. we like seeing big hits, we like physical football, but we don't wanna take the responsibility for that thirst when guys get injured. like it or not, the very nature of the game and what fans like has produced this. some of the hits layed by saints players under this bounty program were considered just fine until people heard about the program behind it and started mounting their high horses as if they were somehow above all of it. heck, these are the same fans that are constantly whining about how goodell is turning this into a p***y sport by making certain hits illegal and protecting players.
bunch of hypocrites the lot of you
