Benson did know, and told Loomis to stop. And if Goodell has a 5000 page document on the investigation, there is definitely a record of 'reward to harm'

Thats where you are dead wrong. They have a record of us paying players incentives, which is against the CBA. Two of those incentives were to harm another player. Unless they have proof of that actually happening, all they got is a violation of CBA. They have to be able to prove "intent", which would be impossible. Incase you haven't noticed, football is a rough game.

Or as I said before, they could have hard evidence of cash incentives and then circumstantial evidence of the injury incentives, and then chose to loop them all together. Also, just because there is 50,000 pages of email documentation doesn't mean there aren't 49,500 lunch plans, political/scientific hoaxes, and cat pictures.

Going backwards fast. Brees' salary and limited cap room hoses us for two years. No draft picks, no meaningful FA signings and injuries kill us.
Thanks Xan for that positive, glass is half full ray of sunshine

This needs to be "quoted for truth" and said AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN -- the ridiculous amount of pages and emails that the league says they looked at, only means that they asked for everything and the Saints gave them everything. They include that info to make it *sound* like the investigation was thorough, or that they have more evidence than they really have. That part of it is a ploy, and nothing more. The actual memo that was circulated to the teams was four pages long. The huge number of pages/emails they claim they reviewed as "evidence" is what they LOOKED AT, not all of it is related to the Gregg Williams bountygate. This is the kind of thing that prosecutors and lawyers do all the time. People need to get that straight.
