Exclamation Decent article from ESPN

Let's not forget that NFL players routinely target other players -- for free. A few of the Giants admitted after beating San Francisco in the NFC Championship Game that they targeted returner Kyle Williams -- who fumbled two punts that clinched the game for the Giants -- because he had a history of concussions. That only made Eli Manning's criticism of the Saints all the more laughable.

Selective outrage about NFL bounties is misplaced - ESPN

I think that is what has me so mad about the whole deal.

It is not that the Saints were "caught". It is the "outrage " and players saying "I can't believe that they did that". It is so ignorant that I just can't wrap my mind around how these people think.

It makes me want to just say one word to these people who act as if this is the first time in history this has been done. That word is: Really?

It is interesting to me how the arc or curve of this story has unfolded in the media -- first everybody went crazy with the sensationalism and outrage, and now, slowly, a more rational and measured response is creeping in. This article hits the nail on the head, discussing the hypocrisy of it all.

That's what dust does, it settles.
But it doesn't take much to get it all stirred up again.
