Lets be honest
 
Because I truly don't know what will happen. But will the players really be vindicated in this matter? Everyone is saying something different and I feel there is too much confusion to the former comm that he will just go with Williams. Also everywhere I look on non-biased forums like ESPN and Twitter people think we are mostly guilty and that we did have a bounty and that Brees knows about it and said nothing.

I don't know what to think really....

Non biased? Twitter?? ESPN???

C'mon man...

Tagliabue is at least giving the impression of a proper investigation.

discussion boards not the people who work for ESPN. I was also googling bountygate on twitter and seen some fans of teams like ravens and steelers talking about wanting bounties put on Batch and such, even someone saying Suh would got a bonus is played for saints. It seems the majority out there don't believe our players.

Oh... so fans from other teams on discussion boards are not biased? :shock:

I'm playing the long ball with the Bountygate thing. The Long View. Of course nobody knows what's gonna happen. But here's the thing.

Take the Kennedy assassination. At the time it happened, 1963, everybody was very concretely set on the story, like, "Oswald acted alone, he was a Communist, lone gunman," etc. Then, over time, people's thinking expanded. Now, most reasonable people's opinion of the Kennedy assassination is probably something more open, like this -- "okay, it probably was Oswald, but we don't really know what happened. He could have acted alone, but there is definitely some weird stuff that happened with that, there could have been others in the conspiracy, all these tendrils of connections and we may never know the truth." Which, while accepting that the "Oswald lone gunman" thing may still be TRUE, this is a completely different thing than believing the simplest original 1963 version of the story straight up, without question. It's just admitting that it's complicated and we don't really know everything.

Then there's "Gore won Florida." Back then, around ten years ago, 2002-2003, there were LOADS of people who would swear up and down that Gore got robbed, that he really won in Florida. Now, after it calmed down, they studied it and it's been analyzed and written about, and the end verdict most of them reached is kinda like, well, no -- he wasn't robbed. If they had counted the whole thing up, he almost certainly wouldn't have won, in the end. But AT THE TIME, it was what a lot of people thought.

So right now, people "out there" are of pretty mixed opinions about what happened with Bountygate. But more of them are starting to look at it critically, and question what was going on with Goodell and the concussions, with Brad Childress and where the story originally came from, with the shoddy investigation, the lack of evidence, with the snitch who got fired from the Saints and then begged the NFL to help get him a job, all that stuff that WE have been talking about all along, it is now COMING OUT TO LIGHT.

I could care less about the people who hate us, or hate on New Orleans, or hate the Saints. What I think is going to happen -- and what I think is the goal -- is for REASONABLE people "out there" to start to look back on this thing later, years from now, and say, "what the h-ll happened there? Where was the evidence? Man, the Saints really got a raw deal from Goodell."

What I found out early on in the whole situation was your average NFL fan wasn't even going to try and form an objective opinion based on any kind of fact. The sensationalism with which the media spun the whole thing made it impossible to have an intelligent, adult discussion on the subject anywhere but right here (B&G). Consider the source as you wander the internet, :mrgreen:.
