Whatever happens it better be a slap, even less than what the 49ers and the Pats got for cheating which is far worse IMO.

Motivational tool. Nothing to see here. Slow news day. Move along.

"Chris Harris, a safety who was still playing for the Bears when Bennett was injured, was not surprised by the story. He tweeted, "Doesn't surprise me. Everyone does it they're just the ones who got caught. It's part of the NFL culture." He added that it's more common than people would think, but he knows nothing."
While I think what happened, if it is the truth, is disgusting and disgraceful, I think the comment above sums the hole thing up.
Mav, I read the news brief put out by the NFL. It appears some one on the team turned them in back in 09 and then took it all back and then last year took some sort of "proof" back to the league. Yahoo and NFL.com have the report.

ESPN's John Clayton speculates that the Saints will face a hefty fine as well as the loss of "multiple draft choices" as league-imposed punishment for the 2009-2011 bounty scandal.

Perhaps the most damning evidence against the Saints is that GM Mickey Loomis and coach Sean Payton knew about Gregg Williams' bounty system, and did nothing to prevent it. "I think it's gonna be a penalty that's gonna exceed SpyGate," Clayton said on SportsCenter. "I think you're probably gonna see the organization fined significantly, maybe close to $1 million. I think you're gonna see multiple draft choices taken away. ... Maybe a first-round pick next year and some other pick this year."

Holy ****! That would suck really bad. But on the bright side, we should have no excuse re-signing Brees, Nicks, and Colston.

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

All little common sense goes a long way.

It worries me more that it would possibly take such motivational tactics to get the team up, than if it actually happened. I have no problem with illegal or for the most part percieved illegal hits being punished with flags and then fines later. But, to punish for percieved intent when no illegal acts actually happened, is ludacris. I wish I was a lawyer with that case against the NFL.

If they really want to hurt us - they'll take out late round draft picks because our first (traded), second picks haven't done schiotte!

Oh, where are all the "GW we Trust" homers?
