I was listening to the Mac Attack on WFNZ this morning and heard a conversation between the host, Chris McClain and Frank Garcia. For those that might not know, Frank hosts an early afternoon talk show on WFNZ from 11am to 3pm and is a former Carolina Panthers and Arizona Cardinals Offensive lineman. Frank Garcia apparently called in because he was irritated at Chris McClain's point of view on the defending the severity of the Saint's punishment. Frank said, " this sort of thing has been going on forever, and you know what Mac? The Panthers had a bounty on Brett Favre's ass in the 1996 playoff game!" This is almost word for word. I was kinda shocked he put that out there, but I guess he was really pissed that Mac didn't understand that Frank thought this wasn't as big a deal as the NFL is making it out to be. I have met Frank Garcia and think he's pretty cool, but I am happy as hell the Saints got what they did. I think the differences are 1. The NFL had evidence and told them to stop and they didn't and 2. They lied about it when asked.

Did he specify if it was a player organized bounty or a coach bounty? Because there is a huge difference.

Nah, all player run. That is indeed a huge difference, imho. I think most teams have an incentive pool for big plays and stuff, but where the Saints went wrong is the coaches got involved and it got out of hand.

Garcia is a moron and is also correct. the only positive thing about the saints punishment is that it was leveled at the saints.

I don't think it changes anything that is going on and has always gone on in all locker rooms

that said lmao at the taints and I hope the fallout gets nothing but worse for them. Bad luck could not happen to a more deserving city of idiots.. again.

The concern now is what else comes out of the closet now that the saints have been skewered. ALL code and honor bets are off when this type of punishment comes down. That is the real reason why it does.

Fingers crossed.

I didn't like Frank Garcia airing that out on the radio. I mean, keep that to yourself or at least argue about it off the air. I guess he was just really pissed and thought Mac was being a little b*tch on the radio, lol.

Was it really Frank Garcia? I heard it as well, but later on in the show Mac said something like "well, WFNZ's got our own Frank" or something like that... Whatever he said led me to beleive he may not have been talking to Garcia. If not Garcia, I've no idea who it could have been since he was the only Frank on the '96 roster.

http://voices.yahoo....ts-7036510.html

The above is an old Yahoo article from 2010... the below is taken from it.

Frank Garcia pointed out that players should be forced to cut off their hair so the helmets fit properly. He also said there wouldn't be so many helmets flying off if they were being worn correctly. Garcia also says his biggest fear is the NFL turning into a season of Pro Bowl like games with little hitting and no blitzing. He went on to speak of the Rams players all playing $100 each for a bounty pool to put out Brett Favre when Garcia was with the Rams.

Not sure how all that comes together... was the talking about the Panthers putting a bounty on Favre, or the Rams when he was with them?

Oh well if that's the case then I guess the Saints organized bounty should have gone unpunished.

What an illogical dumb ass.
