Oh...btw. If all this stuff I'm reading is true, we are in deep doo-doo.

Now we will have a very unhappy QB and everybody in the world wondering wtf was he thinking.

I think the BS regarding the bounties is just that...BS. Here's what I don't understand...maybe somebody can clue me in.

Why do we have one sport...boxing...where the goal is to hurt the other guy and that is OK. Why doesn't the NFL just say that people getting hurt is part of the game and just try to eliminate the cheap shots. Legal hits can hurt people too,.

I tell you one thing...if they keep on people are gonna lose interest. People want to see the hits. Turn it into powderpuff and people will lose interest.

...and this bounty crap has been going on forever. Why do they want to make a deal out of it now? It is the nature of their business. Reminds me of every baseball player and his brother doing steroids and they just picked on the superstars.

My $.02

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

They want to make a deal out of it now because some twat handed them a 50k page diary about it, so they had to investigate it and make an example out of the Saints' franchise.

Another stupid angle to all of this, if the NFL is so worried about its image, then why did THEY break the story like they did? Seems that all the uproar is about only 2 things on the pay to play sheet. Knocking a player out and putting them on a stretcher.

No mention of any of the other things on the sheet. They could have broke the Bounty story but made it more like the big deal is breaking NFL rules on betting. Instead they singled out certain items knowing the uproar it would start.

They tarnished themselves as much as us IMO.

I love me some Drew Brees, but I applaud the Saints for this. One player should not hold an entire franchise hostage. There is a big part of me that wishes they would have let him become a FA.

Believe me, I'm not hatin' on Drew...but Manning deal was simply stupid, and we were offering pretty much the same thing Brady signed. If that's not good enough then oh well.
