Amen on that! How about training your referees, Goodell, to know the difference between an illegal hit and a clean, legal hit. Therein the problem may lie! And I agree.....fine Williams..he was head honcho on defense! It's a trickle down...so give credit where credit is due!

OMG really?? Are they talking about our D that couldn't sack a turtle? Couldn't catch a cold and couldn't tackle my grandma in a wheel chair?

Apparently not much credence was given to this "Bounty". I'd like to know where they got 50,000 pages of info on this from.

Seriously! 50,000 pages???? For real??? That's longer than Obama's Healthcare Plan, isn't it??? Who could possibly write 50,000 pages of allegations? I'd have to see it to believe it.

This is all over sportstalk in Detroit.

My understanding is that there was a pool, players paid in and they were paid on performance for things like interceptions, tackles, key plays, et ... the violation being that the pool also included payment for things like sending an opposing player off on a stretcher (?).

Supposedly, Mickey Loomis, Greg Williams, Sean Payton & Tom Benson were all aware of this, with only Benson asking that it be stopped.

Other then paying for the injury of an opponent (allegedly), this doesn't bother me. It's a violent game, players get sent off on stretchers from non-bounty, legal hits all the time. I'm sure it goes on with every team in one form or another around the entire league.

When you have the chance to lay someone out on the field, you do it, regardless. That is the reality of the NFL. I'm finding it hard to believe million-dollar athletes would be so motivated by a thousand dollars or so that they would intentionally try to injure another player. Besides, had I known there was a bounty on Brett Favre when he was with Minnesota, I probably would have contributed a few bucks,

... this space intentionally left blank ...

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the NFL has determined that MLB Jonathan Vilma was one of the primary culprits in the Saints' "pay for performance" bounty program that will result in NFL discipline.

"In the week of the NFC Championship Game," Schefter said on NFL Live Friday, "Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma put $10,000 in cash on a table and said 'this goes to the guy that knocks out Brett Favre.'" Those weren't Vilma's exact words, but they were similar, according to Schefter, and he's sure to be atop the league's target list for impending discipline. It's worth nothing that Vilma is due $5.4 million in 2012 and has been discussed as a possible salary cap casualty. We wouldn't expect him back with the Saints.

If true, I'm wondering who the snitches are.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

If any of these hit would have resulted in Roddy White having his jaw wired shut, I'd be okay with any fines that come our way.

This will not bode well for the organization.

Something like this would make even Drew bail.

Seriously, this is NOT good.
