I don't have a problem at all with what the Saints did. But of course i'm an old school football fan who is/was accustomed to hard hitting football and defenses that made it a point to "knock out the quarterback."

I really don't care too much for todays flag football.


That's not what we're talking about here... we're talking about coaches and executives setting up and administering a program to offer players financial incentives for doing it (which is also a violation of the salary cap).

Unfortunately for Saints fans, Goodell and the NFL have several issues about it. Most likely, they will lay that law down to send a message to other teams doing it but not caught to get their act together.

This last few days have a been total destruction on Saints fans' sanity. First dealing with who they thought to be a class act QB who would take a hometown discount wanting 23 mil a year. And now the NFL about to hammer down a punishment that will have brown bags out faster than titties for beads on Mardi Gras.

I must say. I've had a permi-smile on my face since about 3:00 PM yesterday.

Loosing 2 first round picks is huge tbh. Couple that with fines and probably a 4-6 game suspension for Greg Williams, a 2 game suspension for peyton, 1 game suspension for players participating in this is what I expect.

This isn't going to destroy the Saints. Just put a little hurt on em.

This has to hurt their chances of getting Brees signed by Monday. Which means they franchise him and probably lose some other key guys.

I figure it increases the chances he gets signed. Benson is likely to come riding in and severely limiting Loomis's power in an attempt to show he is in control. They need to rehab their image and keeping Brees goes a long way to do that.

Florio points out that this could wind up hitting the Raiders too.

Prior to becoming the Broncos DC, new Oakland coach Dennis Allen was the DB coach in New Orleans.

Since this went on for 3 years, the NFL should take the next 3 years' worth of 1st round draft picks away from the scumbags...AND not allow them to use the franchise tag THIS year!

We're not talking about legal hard hits here. We're talking about players getting paid to intentionally end careers of other players. Whether it's during or after the play. Leave it to the dumbass of the huddle, Grits, to go against the grain just to cause an arguement. The more alts he makes, just means my ignore list keeps growing.

I think that such things go on a lot more than you would think. Just like the spy gate stuff. People will come out against it but I'm sur a lot of teams are quietly calling off similar programs.

Yes you do. You're just trying to be that lone idiot that disagrees with everyone for the hell of it. Mission accomplished.
