Yeah no athlete is going to say anything different. There may have been an unspoken code with linemen but its an unspoken code in sports because it defeats the purpose of why you are on the field. . .

To measure your own potential against other athletes

You cant do that when your cheating or taking low blows at people.

Played football, basketball and baseball all thru high school... played on many intramural and rec league teams since... never even once have I heard of a coach asking players to hurt the opposing team on purpose. Wouldn't think of it myself... now I've played hard, and given back what I got, but would never try to purposefully hurt someone...

Hell, even now when the Panthers play, I'd rather the other team be healthy so there's no excuses when we win.

I had a high school coach my sophomore year who got really fired up and carried away up during a varsity pregame speech and told us to aim for the base of the back of the QB's head. Honestly, it made me uncomfortable and I could tell that most of the other players as well as the coaches were uncomfortable as well - we played hard, but no one actually wanted to do that.

That said, I had the same coach jr. and senior years as well and nothing else like that ever came out of his mouth. It was certainly an ugly thing to say, but I really don't think he truly wanted us to go out and try to seriously injure people.

I had a lot of coaches who would yank us out of the game for late or blindside hits. Yet, we were most definitely encouraged to bruise the other players' souls.

Told to play dirty soccer. That's how we Asian play soccer. But it's more of a common thing that happens in our community. But no bounties, no coke, etc. Just to play dirty.

And I dnt want to hear bs from you guys. Just being honest so save your comments for another day.

In high school we were told that if we couldn't beat them in the game we needed to win the fight. Because if we weren't going to win there was going to be a fight. But never anything like the Saints deal...

my high school football team trained the oline to hack the knees and thighs of the dline with their forearm every snap

the point wasn't to intentionally injure the player, but have the dline on weak knees by the 4th quarter so they could just run the draw play. its illegal in the nfl, totally legal at the high school level

still dirty as fug and i hated that goddamn coach

My coaches would say the former part of Williams' speech... Like "smack the QB on his ass". And "we want the RB's head looking toward the sideline".... But "hit his ACL"... That's messed up. I'm just glad the Saint's players never actually went for ACL's like they said. I think trying to take their Superbowl away, or say that it has no merit, is stupid. They were one hell of a physical team, and they did not play dirty. The Kurt Warner shot was physical, and may be even a lil unnecessary, but it was legal.... That's football.

Zero. We were instructed to "knock dicks in the dirt".
