Coaches DO in fact fear retribution from NFL
 
Florio posted he had other sources said the league may have turned up additional incriminating info on the coaches which is why they've been quiet.

Isn't that blackmail? Extortion? Collusion even considering the monetary factors involved with the lawsuits regarding concussions?

I don't have a hyperlink.

I would hate to see the additional info.

JimmyB1775 06-27-2012 09:34 AM

That's what I'm thinking. Maybe we should all just shut up.

The whole thing has been trial by media.
It's been a shambles from start to finish.
GODell expected everyone to take there punishment and keep quiet like good little boys.

im sure the league DID say that. Up to this point all we know is what they "say" they have. Im sure the coaches didnt see what they were talking about

I was thinking the same thing; Why, oh why didn't I take the blue pill?

There was a pay for performance program. Little question about that, and so the coaches are indeed guilty of it. However, if the league has marketed this whole thing as a 'bounty', which it has, a coach might be inclined to say, "HEY! Wait a minute! That's not accurate!"

But

The cannot say anything...ANY thing, because Roger has proven he will cast them down with the sodomites if they dare to openly accuse him. Collectively, the fines are what, 20 million? What can they do? They have no recourse, and Roger knows it and, rather than being fair as he openly says he requires others to be, he's using every ounce of leverage he has, and he has a lot...

The players? That's different, at least conceptually. But the coaches are screwed.
