Thumbs down Dick King strikes again!

1. I think I have no idea what it means when New Orleans quarterback and union executive board member Drew Brees, in a statement about the Saints' bounty program the NFL says took place, says: "I did not participate in any bounty program, nor did I have any knowledge relating to its real existence.''

First of all, no offensive player is alleged by the NFL to have taken part in the bounty thing. Secondly: What is the "real'' existence of something? Does that mean you knew something about it vaguely, or have some knowledge but not full knowledge of the inner workings of the program, or that you knew nothing of it at all?

I will say what I believe league investigators are thinking, regardless of the definition of "real'' here: that every player on that Super Bowl team, and the coach and general manager, knew something of what was going on in the defensive team meetings on Saturday nights.

2. I think the news that the NFL is on the verge of making a decision in the Saints case is a sign that Roger Goodell was fairly sure what he wanted to do when he announced the findings of the league's investigation 10 days ago. It's likely he's conferred with some owners on the sanctions, and with NFLPA czar De Smith, and just wanted to have some time to mull over what will surely be the biggest disciplinary case of his six years in office. Actually, it's likely to be the biggest disciplinary case he'll ever adjudicate.

Yeah, he's kind of condescending in the article, but he's not necessarily wrong about anything in this one.

The shot (from a previous article) about how any Saints players who feel they should/could be part of the injury settlements should be laughed at was downright insulting.

That's not enough to get me to stop reading MMQB, though...probably one of the most insightful and informative regular articles on the NFL to regularly see "print."

I have a feeling that he will complain no matter what the league does.

You think if this were one of the golden franchises of the NFL (i.e. Giants, Jets, Steelers, Packers) we'd see the same vigor in his prosecution of the Saints?

That's why the man is a hypocrite and, in the grand scheme of things, totally useless to the real world...
