Thumbs down No smoking gun but plenty enough to shoot holes through Saints' case

The ledger.

It is not a visually impressive document. Two sources described it to CBSSports.com but gave conflicting accounts of its significance. One said the ledger has dates, amounts -- sometimes in the thousands of dollars -- that chronicle the Saints' bounty system. It's proof, this source said, that the team ran a system that rewarded players for illegal hits. Some of the Saints called the person who kept the document "The Bookkeeper" after the character from the movie The Untouchables.

This just piles on the heap of the supporters of this "Bounty" crap. As long as we keep having morons and wanna be reporters stating why they think the NFL is right, we are going to continue to fight a losing battle. I am just so done with this crap, I am to the point where I really don't give a crap anymore. Just do what you will do and lets get back to football.

It's a shame that we now barely even pay attention to real football news. I know it's the off season but I am so ready to be out the lime light with all this negative crap.

What they don't realise is that Monopoly money was paid over, as part of the motivational tool.

Every "report" looks exactly the same. No matter what it's about. They always have something new yet it's never really news. No matter how many times we ask to be shown something, we keep getting told things. I don't give a crap what anyone has to say anymore. Everyone has something to say... whoopdy freakin' do. If these people can't produce something we haven't already heard a billion times, then just shut up.

I think I'm going to throw up!
I am so sick of people with an agenda against the (small market) Saints. The NFL has not given ANY evidence to anyone and they keep spewing out crap just to keep themselves from looking bad. Old Rog' talks about one thing and does another. He is obviously a spoiled child who never played football.
It doesn't prove a thing lynwood.......not a thing.
