Favre took one of the worst beatings I have ever seen in the playoff game against the Saints. I thought there DC was just being a dick but bounties are a whole different breed of animal

And their defense still sucked, go figure.

I'm still happy we never brought Gregg Williams here. Even if this had never happened. Over--rated *clap-clap, clap-clap-clap*

Schefter -- A safe prediction: Saints will be disciplined far worse than the Patriots were for Spygate.*

Schefter on NFL Live: "In week of the NFC Championship Game, Jonathan Vilma put $10,000 on a table & said 'this goes to the guy that knocks out Brett Favre.'"



*NFL fined Patriots head coach Bill Belichick $500,000 (the maximum allowed by the league and the largest fine ever imposed on a coach in the league's 87-year history) for his role in the incident, fined the Patriots $250,000, and docked the team their original first-round selection in the 2008 NFL Draft.

I'm just glad our team has the understanding that their salaries are enough money to knock a QB out.

I already despised the Saint's. This right here puts them in Cowboys, and Titans territory as far as my hate list.

Take their first round pick away.

I've warmed up to the Saints but the Packers and Giants will always be my favorite NFC teams.

I despise the Titans SO much that I actually find the Cowboys, their fans, and even the city of Dallas tolerable. I know that's crazy talk. lol - I can't stand the Titans and particularly Cortland Finnegan. Uggh

Default Re: NFL Security investigation finds Saints sanctioned bounty program

This isn't just hearsay as some of the Saints fans I have been reading want to believe. Greg Williams has come out and publicly apologized for this..

Quote:
Rams defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has publicly apologized, hours after the NFL announced that Williams had violated league rules by orchestrating a system of bounties during his time on the staff of the Saints.

“I want to express my sincere regret and apology to the NFL, Mr. Benson, and the New Orleans Saints fans for my participation in the ‘pay for performance’ program while I was with the Saints,” Williams said. “It was a terrible mistake, and we knew it was wrong while we were doing it. Instead of getting caught up in it, I should have stopped it. I take full responsibility for my role. I am truly sorry. I have learned a hard lesson and I guarantee that I will never participate in or allow this kind of activity to happen again.”

Williams isn’t making any type of effort to deny or minimize his role in this: He broke the rules, he knows he broke the rules, and he knows consequences are coming.

The question now is what kind of consequences will be coming. The Saints are sure to be disciplined by the league office, but if the Rams lose their defensive coordinator to a lengthy suspension, then two teams will be directly affected by this still unfolding story.

damn...

this offseason sucks. Epic defensive meltdown in the SF game. Brees's contract negotiations. Nicks's growing frustration with the lack of contract talks. Colston's impending FA. And now this.

I think I'm going to hibernate for a few months.

It shouldn't be good for Williams, either.

he apparently did the same thing with the Redskins.

For me what separates it from Spygate is that I don't think the "every team does this" is true for spying w/ cameras, while players have come out and acknowledged that this kind of thing happens in lots of locker rooms.

Regardless, it's a ****ty tactic and I personally don't like it.

Sucks even more that the Saints will be the example.

This will probably be heavier than the Spygate penalties. And that blows.

But Williams should *not* be immune just because he's no longer in New Orleans.

This offseason can't end soon enough... and it just begun

sigh

Doesn't it seem like the payments are a little on the small side? You are making 1+ million a year and you take only 1500 dollars to do something that can get you in a heap of trouble? They deserve to be punished for stupidity rather than actually hurting the players.
