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?

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

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

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.

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!
