Re: Gleason bothered that “no one seemed shocked” by Gregg Williams’ pre-game rant

I get a couple of things from this:

1. It has been stated countless times by defensive players from other teams that GW's rants are typical of DC's through out the league for pregame pep talks.

2. Gleason "may" be angling this for the player lawsuits against the NFL...

3. Or what I choose to believe, With the pending lawsuits for Vilma et al, it paints a picture that it is not the players that were driving this but GW, and the players were doing what they were told....

It's being aired at this time because in spite of protests to the contrary, the same folk have interests in spen and HBO. spen is desperately "standing behind their stories" because if they don't, it's really gonna cost them. We all know that in this trial by media society that repeating one side of the story over and over and over is much better than actual proof. For all I know those hairy corporate rat bastards edited three or four of Gleason's random sentences together to make this "statement".

I can not imagine that the entire show is about the Williams pre-game speech and Steve Gleason's reaction to it. Pathetic that they choose to continue to focus on this.

This is a non-factor. The topic will die with the end of this thread.

Williams was so ineffective as a coach that he had to resort to rants to try to motivate his team.

Re: Gleason bothered that “no one seemed shocked” by Gregg Williams’ pre-game rant

The Saints just made a statue of this guy, and this is how he repays them? I know it's directed specifically at Williams, but by saying he was surprised no one was shocked it sounds like he's accusing the players of being terrible people for not doing something.

But I agree with several posts on here that nothing Gregg said was unusual. Any idiot could tell you it's all rhetoric. There isn't a single person on earth who doesn't use some rhetorical phrase at some point everyday. For instance: "Man, my head is killing me" or "This is boring me to death"... Or you might be standing in a long line at the DMV, and there are a group of loud people behind you and you start getting frustrated and say to yourself "if these people don't shut up I'm gonna blow this place up".

Do we actually intend to blow it up? Is your head literally pulling out a chainsaw and killing you when you have a headache? Do we literally get so bored that we just drop dead? Of course not. Hypocrisy has hit an all time high.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.
