So how is this not on Goodell's suspenion list?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; The more that comes out about past "performance pay", "bounties", etc... They helped to create a "gladiator image" of the players and have profited for decades. Looks like "who can I profit on today and for how long?"...

I just hope Ginsberg's team is taking notes and collecting video clips which they can present in court during the defamation trial.

Actually, if Godhell had any common sense he would pick out a couple of other incidents and hammer them for misconduct. Spread the damage a bit.......but then again he may not want to risk another uprising.
It's beginning to look like public opinion is swaying. Hit somebody else for a change.

Re: So how is this not on Goodell's suspenion list?

This is beyond comprehension. What we have now are players saying yes, I want to knock another player out. I will hit with the intent to injure for nothing more than my salary. I will try my best however to make it a legal hit. There is no secret squirrel stuff going on here. The NFL doesn't even raise an eyebrow. LOL!!!! Ginsberg is about to go top rope on Roger.

Re: So how is this not on Goodell's suspenion list?

He'd have to suspend the entire league if statements like those were wrong. During the game against the Bucs, John Lynch said referring to Carl Nicks playing against his former team that a player in his position would do his best to "bash in the brains" of his former teammates as a way to get back at the team for not offering him as much cash.

This kind of talk and paying on the side for performance is pervasive in the NFL and the SAINTS are clearly being used here.

Re: So how is this not on Goodell's suspenion list?

The NFL's viewpoint or system for evaluating and protecting the game does not consider a player saying he will hurt someone as a threat or a problem. Then why are the Saints even being punished? Under this system you can say whatever you want. It doesn't matter if you mean it or not as long as you do not accept additional money for saying or carring out the action? LOL!!!! This is absurd.

And if that is the case.... I want the NFL to prove, not "he said-she said"; PROVE THAT MONEY CHANGED HANDS, FROM ONE PLAYER TO ANOTHER!

This is what they are after Vilma for. Because he SAID "I got $10K for whoever knocks Favre out".

What is the difference?!?!?!

I am really starting to get POed about this bounty crap.

edit:
I don't think Roger knows what he has created and I hope he gets burned at the stake for this.

Re: So how is this not on Goodell's suspenion list?

The Union should encourage its members to talk this way. It's freaking FOOTBALL. The Union should force Goodell's hand by telling the players to use 'edgy' language - they should MAKE him be the language police to either show the hypocrisy or expose the overall silliness of it all.
