I can't count how many times that I was told to "Rub some dirt on it and get back in there!"

Maybe if they took away all the pads and the helmets that can be used as a weapon players would play with less reckless abandon. I'm all for going back to the leather helmets.
I have a sneaky suspicion the game would be less violent.

WTF??? Dale, have you taken too many hits to the head playing rugby brother???

With millions on the line these barbarians would hit just as hard without a helmet as they would with one.

And lets face it, many of them can't spell cat if you spotted them the K and the A.

There is some truth to his statement though... if they had leather helmets THEY WOULDN'T LEAD WITH THEIR HELMETS SO MUCH.

They'd only do it once; talk about a self-correcting mistake...

If you took out the violence, it would be as exciting as baseball.

Question

I, for one, already think the whole thing is suspect, at best.

1. Why would the No Fun League do a 3-year investigation on the team for illegal hits with the possibility of an opposing player getting severely injured during that time frame? Yeah, the Saints would get it bad, but the league would get it worse and they can't afford that.
2. 50,000 PAGES.......FOR REAL?!?!?!? That's almost a third of a library!!
3. Where were the flipp'n flags that the Zebra Squad were supposed to throw, if there were illegal hits?
4. If the No Fun League knew about this, why did it took three years to nip it in the bud?

And, oh.......

5. How do we know if other teams were set to do the same to Brees, Ben R., Peyton Manning or Tom Brady?
