    Conspiracy? Prove us wrong, NFL.

    even if some of the saints players had admitted to a bounty program, so what, thats no proof one existed. what if someone wrote down how the team selected who they were placing a bounty on and how much they were worth? thats still no proof of a bounty. how can that not be proof you might ask. beats the hell out of me, but maybe we should ask the NFL that question because that was the case with the washington redskins. there were 6 players and 2 coach who admitted that under williams they had a bounty program. furthermore one of the former players wrote an article for the chicago tribune detailing how their bounty worked. here is link) Matt Bowen: Bounties are part of the NFL - chicagotribune.com
    yet the nfl just completed its investigation of the redskins and the bills and has cleared both of them because there was no evidence of a bounty program.
    i cant begin to explain how confused i am by all of this. on one hand you have the saints who vehemently deny ever running such a program but the NFL say they have enough evidence to warrant the harshest penalties ever issued by the league. and on the other you have the skins who have 7 people who admit to a bounty program, one who even detailed it in writing for one of the largest news papers in the country but the NFL says there is no evidence. have i slipped through a black hole into bizarro world?

    Thats ok....Goodell placed these suspensions on the Saints because he knew they would still win the superbowl this year, even if they lost their players and coaches. He probably made a deal with the Saints behind the scenes while he was in Benson's office that would create a large ammount of off season publicity for the NFL, and help the Saints to sell more tickets and merchandise. On top of that he will put in place a systematic referee system that helps the Saints to win all of their games. How much you wanna bet that somebody says that if the Saints go all the way this year? Stupid commissioner.

    Agree 110%. I want people to stand up and publicly recognize that there has, thus far, been exactly ZERO evidence offered by Roger that pins a single person to any action that is worthy of even a third of the punishment he's handed down.

    RECOGNIZE that this is a play by Roger to show the NFL as an entity that truly cares about player safety. It's hog wash. It's manufactured. It's trumped. It simply should NOT be allowed to continue.

    CBA be damned. The players should strike if that is their only recourse.

    Goodell, The Dictator.

    Well said, this is just Goodell's opportunity to cover the league's behind in the upcoming 'safety' lawsuits, nothing more. I said it once, I'll say it again ... the only thing the Saints did differently then any other team in the league was they used the terms, "cart-off" and "knock-out" in regards to their player pools.

    Goodell, The Dictator.

    I knew the NFL commissioner was against us when the NFL changed the playoff overtime rule after we beat Minnesota in overtime to go to our first Super Bowl

    we aren't just upset about punishments, but rather the ridiculous severity of them, and more importantly, the ignorance of Goodell to what is clearly a league wide issue.
    Couldn't have said it ANY better myself!
