If it was us it wouldn't be a big deal because we are small market team. Also we haven't had the recent success the Saints** have had. I would still support the team, because you always change the gm and coaching staff. I wouldn't condone the bounties at all tho.

You don't believe telling players to take out Crabtrees acl is cruel? What exactly would you consider cruel then?


was not aware that that had been established.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHA this is the funniest thread in the history of message boards. You have a team that went to the Super Bowl full of juiced up players, a "favorite" player that not once but twice has knocked out teammates with cheap shots and a history of DUI's and arrest and you think the Saints* are somehow dirty? Not to mention that there is not one shred of evidence that the Saints* ever purposely hurt anyone or had a real bounty on any player. You have a defensive coordinator that liked to run his mouth and it cost him but you want the ownership to clean house for what? Having players that help in the community probably more than any other NFL team? For bringing a city together? For being a world champion? I can promise you that if the Panthers had ever won a Super Bowl and had players committed to Charlotte the way the Saints* players have been to New Orleans and all this came out against them not only would you be screaming at the hypocrisy but you would demand to see evidence and you would defend everyone that has been unfairly judged. But I guess until you have a team that is a true champion you won't know how to react.

Was wondering how long til this idiot showed up. No one defended Rae Carruth. Judging off of yours and many Saints* fans reactions, if he had been on your team you would have defended him. No one defended Smitty's actions. Smitty manned up, admitted his mistakes and moved on. Punching a guy in anger in the heat of the moment isn't nearly as bad as coordinated plans to injure opposing players. I can't tell by your elementary school writing skills, but it seems you're saying Smitty has a history of DUIs and arrests [sic] which is simply untrue. I would completely and utterly condemn the actions of the Saints* if they had been performed by my team. "Bringing a city together" and "being a world champion" wouldn't make those criminal actions forgivable.

We never do anything bad so IDK how I would feel. I can tell you this our players would not be suing the NFL though.

Your fake laughter can't hide your pain....maybe Payton can share some of his stolen Vicodin to help ease the pain. That is if he isn't to busy lying to the NFL and associating himself with criminals.

The Carolina Panthers organization has always been on the foundation of Character. I would hope that our character, as a team, would not allow this to happen. I know that football is a violent sport, but football players aren't just going out to play a game for our amusement...those guys are going to work, like you and I...they just get paid a lot more.

This is where it's valuable to distinguish between supporting the team as a whole and supporting individuals within the system.

Breaking it down according to what happened with the Saints*...

- Whomever the mastermind was (ala gregg Williams for the Saints*) would need to be sent packing for good

- Assuming he wasn't the mastermind, the Head Coach would merit a lengthy suspension (same as happened to Payton)

- And last, if there were players involved in the administration of the program, they'd merit a fine or suspension as well

Basically, the NFL is handling this the right way. And if it were us, it'd be no different.

Would I still support the team? Absolutely, but I'd want the individuals who committed the offense to pay the penalty.

We never had any type of bounty system when I played in high school. Granted, I was on offense, so if we did it could of flown right over my head, but I severely doubt it. Any type of program that wants to injure a player to the point of being carted off the field if disgusting. You do not win chess by setting the opponents queen on fire.


You guys are joking if you don't think something of this nature is going on in every single locker room across America from pop warner to the NFL.

The league has known forever and everyone in the league knows. The Seau's of the world are the only reason they punished the Saints**. They want to put the blame for their lack of concern for player safety back on the players. They want to argue the players did this to themselves by trying to hurt each other.

Stand on your high horse, but this is what is happening. You can ignore it if you want, but it is currently happening on the Panthers, just more discrete now.

IF we had a bounty program on our defense i would suspect no one would be making any of that bounty cash, these dudes don't exactly lay down the wood. The only guy i ever seen just jack up a player repeatedly was chris harris, and god only knows why we got rid of him.

Hell, people already call for Hurney's head and accuse JR of being a senile old ba$tard, so you have to believe we would be all over them for the type of stupidity seen by the Saints* organization.

I find it unbelievable that so many Saints* fans are ready to accept anything as long as they are winning.

Saints* fans have already sold their soul to the devil for their Super Bowl trophy & a spare set of false teeth. They have nothing left to lose.
