[Quote] By Pat Yasinskas | Oct 9, 2012 5:50 PMIn a memo to all 32 NFL teams announcing the revised punishment from the alleged three-year bounty program run by the New Orleans Saints, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell revealed a significant detail about a 2010 game with Carolina. 

In a previous memo, Goodell wrote that the Saints had a bounty on Carolina quarterback Cam Newton last season. In a section of this letter, Goodell details how the Saints rewarded defensive players for injuring opponents. He referred to a 2010 game in which the New Orleans defense was commended for three “cart-offs’’ and one player placed on injured reserve. “In that game,’’ Goodell wrote. “Three Carolina players were seriously injured: running backs Jonathan Stewart and Tyrell Sutton, who were literally carted off the field with a head/neck and ankle injury, respectively, and quarterback Matt Moore, who was later placed on injured reserve, unable to return for the remainder of the season, with a torn labrum.

These all satisfied (defensive coordinator Gregg) Williams’ definition of cart-offs: ‘big hits that resulted in an opposing player leaving the game due to the hit." 



The Panthers are on bye this week, so it’s a little difficult to track down people for reaction. But, when the bounty on Newton was first revealed, I can tell you that some high-ranking team officials were not very pleased with the Saints.[/quote]

If I'm Stew, Sutton, and Moore I'd sue the Saints organization. Hell, the Panthers may have a case too.

Us as fans should also be able to sue due to the fact we had to sit through the rest of the season with clausen due to that

How these dirtbags can continue to deny this is baffling... Hargrove saide today it wasn't a "pay for injury" system, it was a "pay for performance" scheme... Hey dumbass, that's the same thing...

They did it, they know it, they got busted and now are crying... They've already had their suspensions effectively reduced due to the appeals... Shut it and deal with it.
