NFL determined that former Saints DC Gregg Williams administered the program with knowledge of other defensive coaches.

and seemingly, none of this is surprising

It is scrolling across the bottom of the NFL Network. Said that the "Bounty" system was administered by Greg Williams (DC) and involved at least 27 players.

Everyone already knew that Williams was a cheating scumbag....just confirmed what we knew.

Still wish some defense had done to Brees what their dirty defense and coach was doing to other teams. The Saints and their shitty fans can rot in hell for all I care.

All the hits to Roddy White's and Gonzo's knee, administered by the Saints now make sense. I thought they were afraid to tackle high, it turns out they were just breaking the rules.

I'm betting the Saints get nothing but a slap on the wrist for it.

Obviously, we restructured the reward payouts to an annuity system (possibly a casualty of the CBA?), ensuring 2011's defensive decline.

I sure hope Spags doesn't get caught.

If the Saints get slapped on the wrists, I quit the NFL.

The investigation revealed that the pool reached $50,000 or more during the 2009 playoffs, and players were paid $1,500 for a "knockout" and $1,000 for a "cart-off" with payouts doubling or tripling during the playoffs.

The NFL says Saints coach Sean Payton was not a direct participant yet was aware of the allegations and "failed to stop the bounty program."

Before the 2009 NFC Championship Game between the Saints and Vikings, New Orleans linebacker Jonathan Vilma offered any teammate $10,000 to knock quarterback Brett Favre out of the game

i think its pretty clear that no one here was surprised that something like this was goin on, and it was never more clear than on favre during the NFC CG. the saints have always been a dirty ass team. but im honestly shocked by the extent of the whole thing. pathetic sh*t from a pathetic piece of sh*t franchise. cant wait to see the punishment
