Gleason bothered that “no one seemed shocked” by Gregg Williams’ pre-game rant
 
When audio surfaced from a defensive meeting the night before the Saints’ postseason loss to the 49ers, much of the conversation regarding former Saints defensive back Steve Gleason — whose unique access to the team allowed the tape to be made — centered on whether his desire for discretion should have been honored by the filmmaker who captured the words of former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.

Gleason, whose blocked punt that will echo in eternity is now memorialized in bronze outside the Superdome, now addresses the substance of the remarks in an interview with HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel.

And the man whose ALS may have been caused by a career in football that entailed having his bell rung “hundreds” of times took exception to Williams’ directive to attack certain body parts of specific offensive players.

“[W]hen he specified the other players’ injuries, that to me, was over the line,” Gleason said in a rough cut of the show, which PFT obtained from HBO.

Of course they weren't shocked... they have been hearing the same crap from GW for 3 years. GW is the dude who did the Triple H crotch thing, for crying out loud. I don't think Gleason was around defensive meetings that much since he retired.

In the heat of the moment people make harsh comments. As unsettling as it sounds, what he said and what happened on the field are completely two different realities.

Being a former Marine, I've heard my fair share of fiery brand speeches that would make his speech sound like a tupperware party. Did I ever eat the young of my enemy? Did I ever kill enemies to hear their women and childred cry? Of course not. It's chest beating rhetoric to fire people up.

If I do this stuff the only thing in it for me is a likely cell in Fort Levinworth and for sure a lifetime of guilt. Just the fact the Saints were penalized for illegal hits says it all to me. Reward a player for a "cart off" but penalize him for an illegal hit? It makes no freakin sense. What kind of bounty system does that? I'll tell you what kind; none.

Sounds to me his agenda is the new coalition of former players suing the NFL for head injuries? I'm trying to understand why there is alarm over the incident and audio now because just months ago it was Gleason who DID NOT want the audio to be released and did his part to explain away its content.

As for Williams' comments, I mean come on. My little league football coach regularly directed me to "kill 'em" when referring to opponents, and described many situations where we should be "drinking blood."

From what I understand, compared to my brothers' coaches, mine was a cupcake.

I was an infielder and pitcher when I played baseball from 7 years to 18 years old. Every coach I ever had, EVER, instructed me to throw at a guy to back him off the plate if that's what it took. Yes, even 7 years old in Pee Wee league. That's how the game is played.

All this crap about Williams' speech is a politically correct world run completely amuck. It's a mob mentality. The vigilantes are out in full force. Hypocrites one and all.

You do what ever it takes to take out the other teams bast player. The team you're palying was told to do the same thing.

It's just how you present it.
