Don't play the Hall of Fame Game
 
Here's one way to show solidarity. Show up at the Hall of Fame Game dressed but refuse to take the field. I don't know of any law that say we have to play football. Strike for that game. I think that anybody can strike if they don't like the work conditions. That would drive God-hell nuts.:handguns:
EDIT: We could say that we don't think that the game is safe and we're concerned about safety. After the game we can say we rethought the issue and will play again.:cool:

Have to disagree -- I think it'd be even better to just show up and play insane lights out football, buzzer to buzzer, balls-to-the-wall intensity, and don't let up THE ENTIRE TIME. On national TV. Eff the preseason etiquette. No taking a knee. No handing the ball off in the 4th. No phone calls before the game agreeing not to blitz too hard. I seem to remember during the Patriots Spygate year there were quite a few ridiculously over-the-top scores, like 52-7 and 49-14 type blowout whippings. If anything it should be the Cardinals who dress, and then refuse to take the field, citing safety reasons.

Then after the game, which has a ridonkulous lopsided 62-10 type score, coach Vitt and Carmichael stand in front of the cameras and say "Well, we only just executed the kind of game plan that Coach Payton would have wanted us to execute, and we're giving the game ball to our defensive captain Jonathan Vilma, who couldn't be here with us today." I guarantee you that would make STEAM come out of Goodell's ears.

I also disagree, it seems kind of passive-aggressive. Tough though it may be, our team should show class, put the thing behind them and be the bigger person. No need to stoop to Goodell's level.

Aw......come on now. What if we only fielded the offense and leave the defense on the side lines? We could still outplay them and prove we don't need a bounty.:wink:

shoot yeah... and blitz their azz, like theyre the Falcons in Game 10.

Id love to see us put practice squad in, and hike the ball and do nothing. Hike and sit on it. Defense also do nothing. Hike and walk. Let them score. Shows class and sends a message.

Wanna get people on our side? Play the game as usual.

Wanna make an ass out of ourselves and have people turn on us? Do the above.

Stay classy. The attending fans deserve more than us showing our ass because we're p[issed at Goodell.

The rookies trying to make the team don't need this statement crap either.

The coaches trying to prepare for a season without their coach don't need this crap either.

I'd be extremely disappointed if we did some childish crap like this.

Its obvious to most fans of the game who the ******* here is, lets not confuse the issue.

I have to agree, I don't see the point in trying anything to rub anyone wrong with the crap that we are going through.
So lets go beat the hell out of everyone this year. Starting right in Ohio

Forget not playing or striking or whatever; I want to see the Saints drop 40+ on everyone starting with game #1... Let them complain about bounties then, lol

Do we really want to give the fans of the rest of the league more reason to bad mouth us??
