Comment from Joe Horn on Punishments
Excerpt from NFL concerns affect decisions about bounty penalty
By HOWARD FENDRICH, AP Pro Football Writer


One of the ex-players suing the NFL, former Saints receiver Joe Horn, has no doubt there’s a connection between the concussion-related court cases and Goodell’s actions.

“All of a sudden, he wants to pop his chest out and set up these (punishments)? If he was a great commissioner and he really cared about player safety, he would have fined teams five years ago for what happened, because it happened back then,” Horn said. “(Goodell) should fine himself $7 million, because as the commissioner, he should have known years ago this same thing was happening with every other team in the NFL.”

Once again, exactly what I've been saying. ESPN has an article, finally, the points to it too, but I no longer link back to that POS site. There are now nearly 700 ex-players participating in the legal action. The league's primary physician who offered all the opinions on the matter up until about 2007 resigned and has been called a quack by just about every other doctor on the planet.

The NFL will get what it has coming to it, and while I'm not happy about the looming demise of the game I love, there is a big part of me laughing its ass off about it.
