Before The Saints Fan Claim "oh, That Is Said In Every Locker Room"

For what it is worth I did have a heated dicussion with the head coach at a pee wee game ( I was an assistant) who wanted to put our star player back in when he clearly just had a concussion. I had to get the parent's dad to go down there and tell the guy that his son was going to sit out. Needless to say since he was the head coach, I was no longer welcome and my son left the team that day. But the league was notified and he was "talked with" and not allowed to coach again after that season. So yeah there are ignorant coaches obsessed with winning at any cost in every level of football.

Of course there are - but they're outliers. It's despicable a the PeeWee level, the high school level, and in the NFL.

The existence of a worthless human being at the peewee level doesn't do much to validate their defense that everyone says it.

Even if re-instated by the commissioner, no team is going to hire Williams after this.

It would be a PR nightmare, and not worth whatever he could bring as a coach.

He's done.

Its bad the NFL warned them about bounties a week before the speech against the 49ers. If I was Goodell, I would laugh in the face of the appeals and raise their their suspensions just for trying the appeal.

Yep.

Similar thing happened on my son's soccer team when he was only 6. Our coach was trying to teach the kids how to slide tackle and take out another kid's ankle (while making it look like they were going for the ball). Parent's were pissed and confronted him. he made excuses why it was OK and told us it was his team. Half of the kids left the team that day. Guy was a total POS.

That is ridiculous. My son is 12 and plays classic soccer in charlotte and they have expressed rules about not slide tackling. It is still considered a big no no at that level. Teaching a 6 year old to take out another player's ankle borders on insanity.

Gets off soapbox................

Now back to your regularly scheduled Williams bashing.......................

Exactly. They didn't give a poo about what the league had to say, but now they want to play the victim and cry foul.

But the fact that this happens all the time is why guys like Golic and many players and former players are downplaying the issue. Many of them have heard those kind of talks by coaches all the way through their careers. I am glad the Panthers don't stoop to that level but I have heard some Panther players saying that those kinds of things happen in lots of locker rooms. Just not sanctioned by the team or spoken about so openly.

Goodell knows it and that is why he came down so hard. Not just to punish the Saints but show the other teams not to do the same thing or stop what they are doing right away.

Similar things are said in other lockerrooms. Usually not literal though.

Gregg saying he will pay them however doesn't occur in every lockerroom. People always want to exclude the thing that makes it different and then compare.

And if Golic is right, that just provides more reason for making the penalties stiff enough that it stops.

I love to see hard hits, but hate to see players carted off, no matter who they are. Hopefully, the vast majority of players feel the same way.

I will always be a Panthers fan, but if Rivera did something like this, I would want him gone. I would not show up for an apologist rally on his behalf, that's for damn sure.

I'm just really jealous that Zod has been in that locker room enough to know that... Fmylife, I should have been a photographer!

You still can. All you have to do is push on a little button!
