I don't remember any outrage when Bill Romanowski told the 49ers to make the playoff game against the Saints a 'stretcher' game!

The NFL has taken that first step years ago. They are almost there now. I say 10 years top.

Well, if the NFL is moving towards becoming a flag football league, hopefully the LFL will have evolved into having teams in most major markets. They play tackle. I imagine they could have message boards.

Did the players have to pay into the bounty for every missed tackle or interception dropped then?
Seriously, I'm worried about this. Especially if any of the Saints coaches, team staff or ownership paid into the bounty pool. Paying players under the table is a very serious offense. Just ask a Timberwolves fan about "Joe Smith". It took years to get that team back on track from the punishment they received. And with Goodell's wussification of the NFL, he will have motive to come down hard on the Saints if proof is sufficient.

This is not good..... I wanna see these "pages"...... Sounds like sour grapes from the league, because we ruined Favre's year.....

THIS!!! How much of his paycheck did Tracy Porter have to pay in after Marshawn Lynch ran the f*cking field on him in the WC game?

But all in all, this is a "non-issue." So what if they had a pool going, I bet many other teams have them as well.

If the opposing player gets hurt as a result of a legal play, then why would it matter if they had a pool about such things?

Defensive units - in most contact sports - have to have a certain mentality to approaching the game, and as sick as it may sound to an outsider, these type of things help to build that mentality, cohesion, and camaraderie within those defensive units.

I know I put at least two guys under the surgeons knife in my hockey playing days, and as much as I feel sorry for those guys - they should've chosen a different sport if they couldn't handle the nature of the game.

Now, if the hits were deemed illegal, it is a different thing, but I seem to remember that most of those hits on Favre weren't judged as legal by the officiating crew. Maybe the fact that he was older than dirt might've had an impact on how his body reacted to those hits?

I doubt there'll be any major consequences because of this case, and I for one don't feel any differently about the Saints' organization or the players/staff involved if they are somehow found guilty - and I don't care what the rest of the league thinks about them either.
