    Good, Loomis should have been given the same one year suspension as well. 500K isn't big enough to me either.

    I figured the NFL would make an example out of the Saints.

    Wow, this is crazy. One year suspension for the head coach. What about Gregg Williams?

    Gregg Williams is suspended indefinitely, per league source.

    wow...I don't know if I have ever heard of a year suspension for a head coach.

    Flip side: They still have a Lombardi trophy, though. I could live with it if I was a Saints fan.

    Not that I'm condoning what occurred by any means...just sayin', that championship trophy is what the game is all about.

    This league is bi-polar. I've got DVDs sold by the NFL that celebrate big, brutal hits, most of which would be considered illegal today. I've seen recent documentaries on NFLN about Al Davis ("If you ain't cheating, you aren't trying") and the 'roided up Steelers teams of the '70's.

    It's an interesting paradox to see a league celebrate it's brutal past as they try to transform themselves into something nice and softer.

    Don't mind me...just a cynic sittin' in the corner plopping out brain droppings without a filter right now...train of thought stuff...

    No matter what the records say, Reggie still has the big trophy, and USC are National Champ. Vacating anything is a joke.

    Glad to see Roger protecting Fantasy Football... I mean the players' safety.

    How many games did Belicheat miss again?

    ain't the same league as in the 70's. I think it is one thing to have the players have a little pool but when you have management directing your guys to hurt someone, you are totally, totally, totally crossing the line. Your Son plays football...why do you think that this is ok or is it ok that if your son ever played in the NFL you would be ok with team management schemeing to break his leg or put him out of the game with a concussion? Is that what you are saying? You think this game is too soft a game because its not ok to intentionally hurt someone?

    I read DB as saying how the league is bi polar on the issue.

    Not that he condones either position, but how the league puts out conflicting messages. Hard for the players to know what is ok or not based on that.

    Did not see that coming. Cheating is ok as long as you pay the fine and stop. But a bounty program is grounds for suspension. Got it.

    Why are you comparing video taping another team to promoting the injury of other players? Apples and oranges

    As a head coach, if you are aware of an active bounty program on your team, and you do not stop it, you should be banned forever from being a head coach again.
