Dear Mr. Goodell(feedback needed)

I emailed a letter to the commissioner and all major sports stations last night. Can y'all please give me some feedback? Thanks saints fans/friends




Dear Mr. Goodell, my name is Ian Franks I am a saints fan from Shreveport, La. I am all for player safety, I am in no way a fan of any type of program/organization of any level of any type of sport that would encourage/pay out benefits for "targeting" or "intentionally" hurting/injureing someone. Now having said that I do not believe that the saints conducted any type of activity like that. I'm not going to go into the "pay for performance" (that of which the saints i believe had) vs a "pay to injure" program. My only question to you commissioner is this. How could you put that much penalty on the saints organization and players after not carefully examining your evidence or knowing if they actually had a "pay to injure program"? BUT you did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to the giants organization after they ADMITTED to targeting Kyle Williams in the 2012 NFC championship game?? We want answers, is it because your biased and don't want to do anything to your New York football giants? Is it because the Super Bowl is in New Orleans this season and your trying to do EVERYTHING in your power to prevent the saints from going? Do u have something personal against the saints?? I mean if your going to punish one team on "false information" (the saints) and not do ANYTHING to a team that openly admitting to having a "intent to injure" program (the giants) then you are not doing your job. Here's the link to the giants INTENT TO INJURE PROGRAM!

You have some punctuation and misspelled words. You should have made a new thread instead of replying to a thread about AA being released. Might get more feedback if you do.

I don't think he will even read it. Plus how do you know their wasn't such a plan in place? Were you there? Are you privy to some information that the rest of us and the media aren't? Just because you feel a certain way doesn't mean its true. Not to rain on your parade, but if the Saints were absolutely innocent then the **** would have hit the fan by now. I agree with the rest of your argument, but when you say that you KNOW the Saints were not involved in such a program it kind of discredits the rest.

Where did he claim to know that the Saints weren't involved in a p-for-p program?

He stated this:

Now having said that I do not believe that the saints conducted any type of activity like that.

But I agree that his email won't probably get much attention if any, unfortunately for him.

Thanks guys. And besides I don't know how to post a thread using my iPhone the only thing I know what to do is commet on threads....
And yeah I never claimed to "know" anything I just stated what I "believed" went on. And why the giants were not punished.

You felt compelled to send it, so I applaud you for doing that.

Do I think he will ever see it? No.

It is almost more to email the douchebag sports reporters and give them hell.
