Thread: Verdict is in

    Re: Verdict is in



    They deserve the harsh penalties doled out by Sheriff Goodell. He's no joke, he's no game, he's not playing, he's very serious. The "bounty system" was bad enough, they just HAD TO hang themselves by lying about it.

    Re: Verdict is in

    Vikings punter Chris Kluwe chimed in on PFT earlier about how he things Jon Vilma should have gotten a year long ban as well as Vilma specifically put out to the D that he'd personally cough up 10 g's for anyone who got Favre.

    He might. The players punishment hasn't been announced.

It would be a nightmare PR for the league and they cant have teams putting them at risk for bad PR like that. The punishment imo is fine and I think its highly unlikely that you will see the word "bounty" used by by much of anyone in this league for some time to come.
    I don't think it's over the top at all.
    You pretty much summed it up with that paragraph above.
    We've all seen guys get career ending injurys playing football.
    We've seen injurys to players that have changed their lives forever in how they have to function due to paralysis, etc.

    Like you said, if something like that would have happened at the hands of this bounty stuff....
    Fortunately it didn't, but certainly a wake up call had to be issued here to guys who more so then anybody associated with football should have known better and understood the possibility of severely hurting another player while "trying to take them out".

    They deserve every bit of punishment they got. It's even worse how you have players like Brees whining about the punishment.

    The best part about this whole scandle is that now the Refs will be focused on the Saints as the bad boys of the NFL for a while. On the other hand, they may be eyeing up D's in general now looking for motives of a "bountiful" nature....

    Double wow if in fact true. The punishment really does fit the crime now.....

    If Brees doesn't shut up, some private citizen might just step up and offer a bounty to any NFL player who takes him out. That would really make some heads spin.

    Well, it was before Leach, but they may have tried just that. Anyone else remember this? Sure looks a little more sinister now.

    Well, here's some spin that will make you hurl, and unfortunately, it's probably correct:

    http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slu..._payton_032112

    The argument is that Brees will make a few extra million $$$ in his contract negotiations because the Saints need him even more while Payton's gone. So he pulls the "Sgt. Schultz" routine and then makes bank in the aftermath.

    I've never hoped for a player to get injured, but right now I'm on the edge.

    I wouldn't, but I think the pedestal upon which he stood is taking serious hits. Sure, he should be paid according to his value. I hear the Saints offered 18mil a year and he wants 23mil a year. I think 20.5 is fair. But if he drives the price up because of the Bounty-Gate, then let him play under the tag.

    Overall, I put him in Brady category. I used to respect Brady, until he and his team got caught cheating and he started crying for flags.

    I think though, he may be worse than Brady simply because he was one of the faces of the NFLPA talking big talk over player injuries and here his whole team and even coaching staff are in on bounties to hurt other players. Then he goes on to say he had no idea. My friends, this is where the term "fucking liar" comes from. Then, to top it off he has the gall to question the commissioner's punishment of his coach when his own coach put 5 grand down on a fellow player and fellow quarterback.

    Honestly, I think "Bounty Gate" is worse than "Spy Gate" simply because this affected men's lives, careers, as well as pain and suffering. It is completely intollerable and without possible excuse that players like Brees, Greer and former Joe Horn attack the commisioner and the NFL's decision.

    Furthermore, the excuse that others may be doing it is not an excuse. Ignorance of the law doesn't get me off for speeding tickets. If you know you are doing wrong, continuing the practice is damning enough. Period. Then to continue to lie and do it while under investigation. Plain stupid.

    I will cheer every game the Saints lose as I do the Patriots.

    Looks like Fox is interested in Payton as an analyst.

    How FOX convinced an analyst the quality of Brian Billick to work for them, the world may never know.
