More details on the Bounty Scandal...

...via the Onion :


The NFL’s bounty investigation has triggered one of the biggest scandals in league history, and it’s no simple matter. Onion Sports breaks down the most important points:

-Then-Saints defensive coordinator came up with the plan as a tax dodge when his old system of fining players for leaving opponents unhurt generated too much income

-The 31 NFL defensive coordinators who are not Gregg Williams heard the words "NFL bounty scandal" and began sweating

-Unfortunately, no Saints player was able to collect the $500,000 bounty offered to anyone who destroyed that stupid pirate ship in Tampa Bay's stadium

-Some players felt the bounties were cruel and wrongheaded, as the bonus for player death was only $500

-When the bounty program was suspended out of fear of discovery during the 2010 playoffs, Saints defensive players went on a tackling strike against Marshawn Lynch and the Seahawks in the Wild Card round

-One of the few positive aspects of the bounty system was that Saints players volunteered to brutally injure middle school bullies free of charge as part of the NFL's United Way initiative

-Pool to injure Brett Favre was actually funded by fans across the country, every other team in the league, and the NFL itself

Now that truly made me laugh out loud. Thanks for posting, I needed a laugh.

My favorite was the last one about Favre. If smacking him around is wrong, I don't want to be right.
