holy hell 50k pages

I don't know if I've read 50,000 pages in the past five years.

The words 'off books' might seem small, but I have a feeling there going to be pretty big in this situation.

There is another way to look at this as well. Not that it is as big as the act itself, but I am 95% sure that paying players for on field contributions, outside of the things outlined in the contract, is some sort of a salary cap violation. Otherwise we could sign anyone to a minimum contract, and then pay them whatever they wanted under the table.


Yes, the commish has already stated that this is a major infraction of the old and new CBA agreements. This hole they dug is deep.

I disagree. For the long term security of the NFL, safety must always be improving. Allowing for players to knowingly and intentionally injure other players would open the NFL to law suits that would completely destroy the league.


Sorry, that's not what I meant. I was saying to allow these specific players continue to be on the field and take what the others will dish out. Sorry not to have been clear on that. In truth participants nor anyone with knowledge of such a thing should ever be allowed back into a NFL stadiun. Including Payton and the Saints owners.

Stay classy New Orleans.

So let me get this straight, after 40 years of being the absolute laughing stock of the NFL, the Aints finally crawl out of the toilet, win a SB and all of that will be tainted by one of the biggest scandals in the history on the NFL?

Saints fans, just kill yourselves now. LOL
