My views wouldn't be any different if it was us, you guys, the Steelers, the Cardinals, etc.
Actually, I didn't realize you were a Falcon fan until way into the debate. BUT now that I know, it explains a lot as to why anyone would come here on our site and try to tell us we don't know what we are talking about.

I have no problem talking football with anyone, I don't care who there team is. You may not be a hillbilly but obviously your a few french fry's short of a happy meal if you think coming on here arguing the side of the kommisar is going to win anyone over.

Separate helmet-to-helmet, launching, etc. with hitting a defenseless receiver. As I said before, defenseless receiver is a judgement call that I think is impossible to regulate. Contrary to what some of you guys seem to think, I don't agree with Goodell on everything.

Is your last question serious? Is this whole discussion just going to you deflecting away from the point and trying to say "well everyone else does it." If they do, there hasn't been any proof of it yet.

Hitting another as hard as you can with legal hits, even if the other gets hurt, but getting token reward if the other gets hurt, is intent to injure. I got it. Fantastic.

And yes, Mike Smith, when asked specifically about the cleary illegal hits Dunta Robinson landed on defenseless players with the intent to injure them (why else would you land an illegal hit on a defenseless player) he responded "that is how we teach them". He is clearly stating he coaches players to land illegal hits on defenseless players with the intent to injure them.
Yes, because offering payment for injuring other players is illegal? It's funny though your last paragraph. You're practically twisting yourself into a pretzel in an attempt to deflect here.

@Radical

Ok...So I can understand...the Saints were "injuring" players with "illegal hits" and taking guys out left and right. All the while smiling and cheering at the fact that they just got paid a grand or two (which is like most of us betting a soda or 5 bucks in a friendly wager IMHO).

But the Saints were not taking guys out of the game. They weren't illegally hitting anyone. At least far far less than most teams through the "seasons in question".

I think thats where you aren't going to get anyone here to jump on board. A clean hit is a clean hit. You don't think NFL players try to knock the hell out of everyone they lay a hit on? Hell yes they do!

The money (if indeed there was any) was more like a pat on the back. Not a ****ing bounty on a guy to take him out by any means possible.



SOOO...if a legal hit takes a guy out, its fine.

But if the guy legally hits a guy, takes him out for a play or two and he gets some short change for a job well done, it's a bounty. Right?

Why this insistence to "separate" anything? An illegal hit is an illegal hit. Lowering your head and launching at the other player's head is an illegal hit. Certain hits are made illegal because of the high probability of injury to the player who gets hit. When you consciously lower your head and launch at a defenseless player's head with the crown of your helmet like the video clearly shows Dunta Robinson did, he's clearly trying to injure the other player. No if, ands, or buts about it. Flagged as it happened, heavily fined afterwards. Why is it so hard to see?

Oh, and I am dead serious about the last question. Don't take it from me, take it from ex-players like Jason Taylor, who stated all NFL teams have money pools.

Dunta never launched, and the helmet to helmet contact was only made on Maclin was do to him turning. Nice try. If the NFL finds the Falcons run a pay for injury program like the Saints then, then they'll get their punishment and I'm not going to twist myself into a knot trying to deflect, deny, and distort it.

he never launched? Come on, dude. The video is posted a few posts above.

I am not denying, twisting, distorting anything, but you keep going on with the pay-to-injure comments, and the "if there's money involved, then there's intent to injure" thing, which is not correct. As I stated posts ago, whether there is a token reward or not, football players are going to hit other football players as hard as they can, and this will result in injuries, whether there is an intent to injure or not; that is the nature of the game. There is no hitting harder because you can get a token reward afterwards. A legal hit is not made an illegal hit because you can get a token reward afterwards.

On the other hand, when a player keeps on delivering vicious illegal hits which are flagged on the spot then heavily fined, with the HC stating that's what he teaches, one can easily argue actual intent to injure is present.

As for the money pools, they have been around football since forever. Known fact, corroborated by a large number of high-profile ex-players (current players are not going to open their mouths, obviously), just about all teams in the NFL have one/had one. Yes, they are against the rules, and no one around here is denying the money pool existed, or would have any issue with it being punished, had they been punished for what they are, money pools, and not some nefarious hitman contract fund like Goodell made it out to be.

LOL

This dude either doesn't get it or can't. Either way it's a waste of time.

Lemme see if I've got this straight...

You'll twist yourself into a knot trying to deny and distort the illegal cheap shots from Dunta even when it's in a video that we call all see,
but...

But you want us to believe that if the league accused your players of trying to injure players when there was no proof or even injuries, you'd just calmly accept that.

Yeah, I believe that.

Even Chris Collinsworth said in the video that he wasn't launching. Launching is when a player leaves both of his feet, and Dunta never did that. I suggest reading up on the rules before you spout off and make yourself look ignorant.
