NFL showed slides from Saints* computers on 1/7/11,saying: "Now's the time to do our jobs, collect bounty $. No apologies. Let's go hunting."

The slide in question...

post-202-0-92456900-1340057015_thumb.jpg

All 200 pages of the evidence presented today can be downloaded in PDF form here (NFLPA) and a pretty good summary article from Saints* reporter Jeff Duncan can be found here (NOLA.com).

Excerpt:

The evidence the NFL used in its hearings with Saints* players in the bounty probe and released today by the NFL Players Association is pretty damning for the Saints*, who in recent weeks have vociferously denied a bounty program existed with the team.

You'd have to be pretty naïve - or a blindly devoted fan -- to not believe a program existed after reviewing the evidence in its entirety.

It's clear from the evidence presented today - and remember the league is believed to have even more in its possession -- the Saints* had a pay-for-performance and pay-for-injury program administered by coaches and conducted by players.

And, please, don't get derailed by semantics here. All that matters to the NFL is the existence of a pay-for-performance and/or pay-for-injury program.

The NFL doesn't have to have proof of bounty money being paid to a defensive player for intentionally injuring an opponent, or for knocking an opponent out of a game, whether intentional or not. The NFL has to show that a bounty was offered. They don't have to prove anything more.

So all of this reviewing of game tape to see if players injured opponents or delivered cheap shots is a waste of time. It's irrelevant.

Like conspiracy to commit robbery, all that's required for a person to be considered guilty is for those involved to know of the planand to take some action toward its completion. The robbery itself need not be committed.

In this case, the existence of a bounty program administered by coaches and condoned by team officials is a major violation of league rules.

Kind of fascinating to see something from the internal workings of an NFL team, even if it's the Saints* :unsure:

Man, were they ever idiots to keep records on this stuff :lol:

What Vilma probably liked even less is that there are several pages with player names, how much they were paid for "whacks" and "cart offs" and such in specific games and/or how much they paid into the pot as well as records on who had and hadn't "paid their dues".

Vilma's name is indeed listed, and more than once.

One of the other things you can get out of looking at the PowerPoint slides for defensive meetings is that Gregg Williams is a totally sick-in-the-head bastard (though I doubt that'll shock anyone in this forum). I seriously think the man needs some professional help.

While we're at it, there's this for your amusement: Saints* Report - Payton's Wiki Page

They're concerned that Wikipedia may not be fairly representing how innocent and unsullied Sean Payton should have been in the midst of this horrible miscarriage of justice :rolleyes:

I've had to curtail my reading over there for fear I'll start losing brain cells.

Payton and Loomis have years and years left. Vilma was on his last leg. Makes sense.

True, good point... I guess he doesn't have that much to lose by denying it... But when the NFL finally comes out with indisputable proof, which they really already have, he'll just look like more of an ass than he does already.

This just gets better and better. The Commish also has Hargrove on film screaming 'Pay me, bitch' to a couple of Saints* coaches, after he injured a Giants player. Mike McCray(sp.) is also on tape telling Joe Vitt 'I want my money, he's done' after Farve was injured in '09 play-offs.

Yeah the NFL definitely has evidence... I just don't get their motives behind the way they're doing this...

    • There's merit is there is discrepancy between words and action.  For instance, Saudi Arabia not being held accountable as they are saying all the right things but doing the opposite of following through.
    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
