Bounty on Brees, Sproles, Graham
Well, what was the bounty price tag on Saints Bress, Sproles, Jimmy Graham?
I am not, not for this kind of behind the scenes thing. It is ugly.
Saints Bountygate has opened the the other teams ' bounty's too. Others ' wrong doesn't make your wrong right. I am not saying that.
I am not saying our beloved Saints were ok because other teams did it. The Saints, apparently , were one of the what, 32 teams that did this little known league practice.
We have read about the Saints tags on others.
So what about the tags these Saints had on them?
You know there were some pretty big price tags on these three guys in particular.

I wondered last nite if there was a bounty on Pierre in the San Fran playoff game. Or,Reggie in the NFC Championshp game. Those two plays jumped into my head. I agree with the original post,to wrongs don't make a right,but it would somehow be worse if we were the only team ever to do this.

Do you not think that other players are doing anything and everything in their power to knock our playmakers out of the game? It happens ever play but it is an unspoken rule; we were just stupid enough to speak about it.

If other teams created bounties for Brees, Sproles, and Graham, it wouldn't hurt my feelings one bit. As long as they are playing the game fairly then what the hell does it matter? It doesn't.

The game has rules to penalize teams for illegal actions on the field. As long as they apply those rule fairly, it's no harm no foul.

Any teams that had bounties on Brees, Sproles and Graham last year, should get out of the bounty business, because they suck at it as much as the Saints do!!

I still look at bounty hunters and think of cattle rustlers and such.

At least 3 times a season Reggie Bush would get blown off his feet, sometimes helmet to helmet, sometimes being speared by a defender, and the refs never called one of them.

Bush was a target when he was here.

I agree that if there was a bounty on Brees, Sproles and Graham... teams did a pretty bad job of executing that bounty.

I'm putting a bounty on Loomis's head if doesn't sign Brees longterm. How about them apples.
