    It's not the crime, per se.

    I get your point on the lies and cover. My only issue is the severety of the penalties when compared to the big picture of infractions in the NFL. Vick commited a Federal offense and also lied. He should have been banned for life. Same goes for the 49ers and the Pats, they cheated and lied to the NFL for years. They were fined and picks taken but nobody was suspened but the Saints have three coaches suspened along with the fines and picks. This is not justice. Thing is, of all these infractions the Saints bountygate had the least amount of damage to the NFL. Vick ruined the Falcons, the 49ers and Pats, no telling how many cities they robbed of glory. What was the impact by the Saints? There is not one example of a player being carted off the field and removed from the game with an illegal hit.

    I respect your opinion, and your desire to be objective. But, I don't think we as fans have been as short sighted as you may think. In fact, I don't think we've been short sighted at all, with the exception of a few crazy people, perhaps. I completely agree that Roger had to punish the Saints, but I think Gregg Williams' suspension along with all the fines would have sent enough of a message.

    Instead he trashes the head coach for a year, the general manager for half the year, takes away picks and continues to ignore other bounty programs around the league, with the assumption that they are less severe, even though he has yet to investigate them. That isn't justice.

    We Have A Hypocrite In Our Midst

    No, not the NHL too! ... but this is what professional sports is coming to ... do you play the game as it was intended or do you protect yourself from lawsuits? We live in a litigious society, be prepared for all professional, contact sports to go the way of professional wrestling ... it'll all just be scripted entertainment ... "and in this corner" ...

    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.

    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

    Much agreed. The league can't have it both ways.

    It's not just the NFL ... America is starting to ruin all it's team sports. The NHL, I'm afraid, will eventually catch up to the madness.

    NFL Alumni vote Stafford QB of the Year (?)

    IDK, I'm on the list but I think I'm going to pass until next season, not real excited about their non-conference opponents at home for 2012, even though Houston would probably be a good game to watch.

    That will be a good game @ Tennessee. You know Schwartz is going to have some fun in the interviews when asked about playing his old team, .

    You gonna break down and get season tix? I still want to make it up to FF for a game. I will in all likelihood be going to the Lions @ Titans game, as it's much closer to me. Should be fun to see Schwartz return to Tennessee to take on his old team.

    Thanks. I think it was unfortunate for Stafford that the year he has a genuine "QB of the Year" season, two of the league's elite had a slightly better one. But he's young, so "It's Always Sunny in Detroit". I'm gonna' love hanging out at Eastern Market tailgating next season, thanks to Matt & Co.

    Weird list. Good read, Slomo.

    The coach of the year was fired. I think that says everything about these "awards". Stafford should not have won QB of the year, and Suh should not have won DL of the year.

    WOW.

    Respect for Ryan Braun

    I'm not necessarily 'siding' with the guy, I'm just surprised the MLB tried to pursue the charges knowing there was such a flagrant violation of the chain-of-custody protocols.

    I can also appreciate the fact the guy kept it on the down-low and didn't go the denial route or the "my true fans will believe me" route. Who wants to see another media circus as with Sosa, Mcguire, Bonds, Clemens, Conseco ... not me.

    Respect for Ryan Braun

    I'm sorry I just can't see myself siding with Braun regardless of how "classy" he approached and dealt with the process. He can deny all he wants... so did Raffy, Bonds, Clemens, etc. They swore up and down they never touched the stuff yet were all found to be liars. Could it have been the "herpes medication" he was taking... only he knows that. But he tested positive for a banned substance and the fact of the matter is that he did get off on a technicality and deserved some sort of punishment.

    What's funny is that I have no problems with steriods. I work in a clinic and when people are hurt or feeling sick, it helps you feel better. Hell I don't even care if they use it as a performance enhancing drug... the best years of baseball in the last 20 years was the steroid era. Chicks dig the long balls... and so do grown ass men. I just feel if you did do it and go caught, just man up to it and move along. Don't be like those other guys.
