Besides the Warner Hit ...

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Harper blasting Steve Smith in the endzone last season well after the play was over. Seemed pretty damn unnecessary but with this bounty talk it's making a little more sense....

We don't know if Smith had a bounty on him first of all... secondly, he didn't "blast" Steve Smith. He hit him and nothing more than that.

It was stupid and unnecessary move on Harper's part no question on that part.

He drilled him dude... for no clear reason. Anyways, the original post asked for an example that wasn't fined and if I remember correctly Harper was fined for that hit so I take back my post.

You can't possibly think that hit was supposed to a "stretcher hit?"

If so, Harper is a much worse tackler than I thought.


Oh, and for reason I would say that it was a divisional game and S.S. is arguably one of the most irritating players in the NFL along with Roddy White. And if I remember correctly, S.S. had been running his mouth to some other Saints' defensive player a couple of plays before that hit.

This **** is getting way out of control. All the media outlets are making it out to seem like we killed people. According to fatass Micheal Moore, our guys were paid to "hurt or maim an opponent." Maim? Who the **** did we maim? This is getting to the level of ridiculousness.

So what? We are still SUPERBOWL CHAMPS for the 2009 season.

I hope YOUR team wins the reputation of being the SWEETEST team in the NFL.

Who cares what the football media says? They have nothing else to talk about right now during the offseason, so, of course they are going to talk about this.

Let the Saints-Haters lap it up. It won't change the facts about us winning our Championships, both Superbowl and Division and Conference.

Let's stand tall and tell the Haters to kiss our asses.

I know many will point to the Warner hit (it was legal) and Favre during the NFC Championship game (and I'll concede on that one), but what else has there been that makes this such a huge deal? Other than the fact that it was uncovered?

Who the hell has N.O. hit that was an illegal hit? Who? Which players were carted off the field because of the Saints being "dirty?" I know there is someone out there that can answer this ... I've got to be honest though --- I don't remember any besides Warner and Favre ... Anyone?
Who have the Saints played since then that would warrant taking out a player?

Maybe the offense should have had a bounty to take out GW during the 40 whiners game, a-la like the Payton in the Bucs game!!

Was it Carmichael who placed that bounty?
