Less than 48 hours before Jonathan Vilma's hearing in U.S. Federal Court to determine whether his case will continue against the NFL and the evidence discovery phase starts, we think the NFL's negative PR and propaganda machine is hard at work, AGAIN!

This time it sounds like Roger Goodell got Hall of Famer Gayle Sayers fired up on "faulty facts" and Sayers stages a ridiculous emotional display in an interview for Comcast's SportsNet Inside Look where Sayers expresses disgust for the Saints players and coaches, and Sayers proclaims (Saints) Team owners paid Saints players to hurt other players for money.

Pro Football Hall of Famer Gale Sayers became surprisingly emotional when asked about the Saints’ bounty program in a TV interview, showing anger and sadness and even suggesting that those involved should go to prison.

Sayers said in an interview for Comcast SportsNet’s Inside Look that he was disgusted by the Saints’ bounty program and that he believes the Saints’ players and coaches should be banned from the sport.

“How can you do that? I have never had anybody say ‘I’m going to break your arm.’ Never!” Sayers said. “They should never go out there and play this game again, go out and coach this game again.”

Sayers also said there are “owners out there that are telling there football players . . . ‘Go out and I will give you $1,500 to break his leg, to break his arms.’” With that comment, Sayers either misspoke or misunderstood the facts of the NFL’s investigation into the Saints’ bounty program. There have been no allegations at all that Saints owner Tom Benson was involved in any type of pay-to-injure scheme.

But Sayers believes strongly that the Saints did something very, very wrong. When interviewer David Kaplan told Sayers that some people think those involved in bounties should go to jail, Sayers replied, “You’re damn right they should.”

Why is Gale Sayers furious about a bounty?

I am pretty sure the teams he played on back in the 60s I think it was had bounty programs, I bet bounty programs in his era was very common.

also Sayers is quite misinformed to.

I thought it was pretty sad. That dude should be involved in the big lawsuit. He wasn't quite all there.

Maybe he should join the lawsuit(s) against the NFL - apparently he can't grasp the facts and had one too many concussions.

Wonder if the old Raiders team targeted players - the league sure has played enough replays showing them pushing players back to the turf. The whole "bounty" issue is a CULTURE created and promoted by the league...

OK.. Maybe I had a bit too much Saki' tonight, but this is just getting stupid.

So he's pissed off about something for which there is no evidence? I agree with Seer1. He needs to call a lawyer and get in on the lawsuit because his got too much air in his thinking cap.

HEY GAYLE!
IT'S TIME FOR YOUR MEDICATION!


Look, I would normally give the old guy a break, but I think his comments were sensational staged and outrageous. Ignorant or not, he put himself out there.

I bet he was paid off. Something fishy about the timing of this and the wiretapping allegations that have resurfaced
