Bounties? LMAO Sorry, Show me the cheap shoots!

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; What is the big deal? I do not get it. Show me the illegal hits that put a player out of the game that was not already caused a fine or suspension. Deal with those as evidence. Not the legal ...

Bounties? LMAO Sorry, Show me the cheap shoots!

What is the big deal? I do not get it.

Show me the illegal hits that put a player out of the game that was not already caused a fine or suspension. Deal with those as evidence. Not the legal hit clips played on espn over and over. My favorite is the one with Kurt Warner. I still ROFLMA every time i see it. He could have made that tackle or at least slowed the ball carrier down.

GOOD LEGAL HIT!

Now Espn is the ET of sporting news and yet every now then they mess up and put the wrong guest on. Opps one ex player messed up and said:

The Bounty is not as bad as the Spy Gate because it was not cheating.

I love when the media of non player start their screaming and the nfl pushes for the response to protect an offense favored game that is all about the number of viewers they can attract. For those of you that know me this is an old horse i have beaten to death.

Death of defense in all pro sports all for the sake of TV rating.

Now if anyone has played any sport or coached we are all guilty of breaking this new Holy Grail of the sports world. So you no longer assign a defensive player to shadow an offensive player? God for bid you fire him up to do the best job he can.

Sorry kids no more pizza for winning.

God also knows i have promised a reward to players to get them to play at their best or give that 110% we drill in every players head. Simple put crush their assignment. So be it if they get carted off the field. As long as it was clean it is cool. It is the risk we accepted as part of the game. We all know that teams are gunning to stop the other teams weapons. Hell that goes all the way back to pee wee times.

"Feel for you dude but the game goes on. NEXT!!!!!"

I am sick of this so show me the cheap shoot or shut the F up.

I agree with your notions.

The problem here is that it so happens that Goodell was probably picked on as a kid, and now he is on this crusade to make watching football miserable for all of those who like the physical side of the game.

Even though this "bounty" program had very little effect on what happened on-field - at least what we can perceive - Goodell wants to makes this a big deal because it coincides with his crusade to turn NFL into a flag football league.

I look forward to the days, where every defense in the league, plays every game, like they do the probowl.... It's funny to me, that Goodell complained about that, when it's all his doing to begin with...

It's in all levels of football. Offensive, defensive, special teams......side bets are in all aspects. College players get stickers on their helmets for the same things. WTF?

Greg Williams should get his money back, if he paid out any at all.
Times article jokes about taking Sean Payton out, was the best hit in the last 2 years,
and an offensive guy made that hit.
Everybody in the organization knew this was coming.
Williams may have left town to soften the blow.
Thanks GW.

And will players be fined for high-fiving and chest-bumping after monster hits?

you guys are missing the mark. it's not about getting a little something extra for "big plays". It's about being rewarded for injuring someone.
