Re: Mike Florio Calls Bullshinski on Bountygate and the NFL's Beatdown on the Saints

Exactly. We just got railroaded at a time when former player safety was hitting the pocket books of the owners and the league. This was an opportunity for the league to publicly show they were doing something to prevent this and assist their legal case and minimize their financial damage. We were the wrong place wrong time team and Roger will stop at nothing short of a Manitowoc County Sheriffs fabrication to be right when he wants to be.

As Florio said, other organizations need to beware when their time comes. It's only a matter of time before this idiot needs to make an example of someone else over his own created flaws in this game. Goodell is a flat out criminal and until the pocket book's of ownership are penalized by his actions they will continue to reap the benefits of his mismanagement of this league.

Don't think all the Psychotherapy in the world will ever get this out of our heads.

Re: Mike Florio Calls Bullshinski on Bountygate and the NFL's Beatdown on the Saints

i'm reading Concussion right now, I've gotten to where the dr finds out the NFL has known about concussions since the 1980s. The "committee" put together completely disregarded any scientific info already out there.

Some of the other things I've read so far boggle my mind

I laughed at this because a few weeks ago Loomis was wah-wahing about the lost two picks...

A sardonic reporter would have seized that and asked him sarcastically about the lost opportunity of taken two more SJBs...

don't you mean a reporter ACTUALLY doing his job but the NO media has been whipped into submission by Payton, only Tripplet and Duncan have any stones to actually ask tough questions

Re: Mike Florio Calls Bullshinski on Bountygate and the NFL's Beatdown on the Saints

To piggyback off of RaginCajun83, The NFL has known about concussions since the last 70's early 80's. Remember back in the day it was your bell got rung. I remember reading in Sports Illustrated once Merrill Hoge talked about how he was blowing on eggs to cool them off. At least his brain still thought they were eggs, he said he looked down and saw he was blowing on oranges. Troy Aikman is on record saying he doesn't remember the 2nd half of the 1993 NFC Championship Game due to a concussion and Shannon Sharpe said the same thing regarding the 1998 Championship Game against The Jets. I remember Al Toon stating that he has mood swings due to the head trauma's he took as a receiver. The NFL has known for quite some time about the dangers of head trauma but they never cared. That's why they are still using a helmet from Riddell that is woefully outdated.

These are the results you get when you have a con-artist lawyer masquerading as an NFL Commissioner.

Anybody think it's rather convenient that the huge amount of FanDuel and DraftKings ads conveniently just went away about the time fans started seeing some really rigged games or statistical outcomes this year? Hook customers, make tons of money illegally, hide. Fantasy football a game of skill? Give me a break!

Has anyone noticed that Der Kommisar has been absent from the public eye every since the Ray Rice incident? His reputation took a bad hit and he's just waiting on people to forget. Then he will jump back in the lime talking about the integrity of the shield. Bull ****!!!

We're still recovering from Bountygate. That set us back years between draft choices and having to replace a defensive coordinator that was doing a great job and building his roster how he saw fit.

Re: Mike Florio Calls Bullshinski on Bountygate and the NFL's Beatdown on the Saints

I'll always remember Troy Aikman and other NFL players saying that what The Saints were accussed of was tame compared to what they went through back in the day. I remember Reggie White admitting to have a cash for crunch NFL sanctioned contest that was actually shown on one of the NFL sunday shows back in the day.
