Hardy was found guilty by a judge and is appealing his ruling. He was found guilty, so it's not like his case has yet to be heard and it's merely an accusation. Albeit, the guilty ruling was a bit suspicious based on what I've heard from the testimony.
Since Hardy is appealing he might still end up found innocent. I always thought he should serve a 6 game suspension (new amount set by the league for crimes like this) for being found guilty and be able to return afterward. If he's found innocent at his jury trial, great. If he's found guilty again, he already served his suspension. I think putting him on an indefinite paid leave was a ridiculous knee-jerk reaction and it made the Panthers look foolish.
Ugh. Discussing bounty with rival teams fans is frustrating because you believed everything that was spoon fed to you by the NFL and the media because it was the Saints and the whole thing made you happy. I mean why would you want to dig and see if there were any actual facts out there.
There were confessions by coaches and players.
We all know the NFL and Goodell are liars now.
Payton wasn't punished for his role in the bounty case asshat. Goodells words were, "There was no proof that Payton had any role in the bounty sheme, but he should have known, and ignorance is not an excuse." So you keep throwing out that Payton ran it, with no proof at all.
Wasn't there an email indicating that Payton's agent was contributing?
You also don't care about the Giants players targeting Mike Williams in the NFC Championship game a few years ago because all you care about is the Saints orginization looking like poo. Players after that game said they knew Williams had a concussion and wanted to "test" it. But damn the Saints are evil! No matter that the Packers were running a pay for performance in 2007. No loss of draft picks. No suspensions. Nothing. Why? Because there wasn't a concussion lawsuit going then.
Is there a difference between players setting up a pool within a position group and a coach administering a program extending outside the org?
The Saints ran what was and probably still is a common practice in the NFL. The difference is Gregg Williams is a POS. I'm guessing he got to NO and suddenly concocted this whole scheme though. He probably didn't run anything like that in all of his other years of coaching.
NO other team was identified with anything close to the same type program.
That's all I'm discussing on the matter. You want to feed into the NFL railroading the Saints? I'm fine with that. Stay uneducated on the matter. The Saints were made an example of in light of the concussion issue.
Railroading? to what end? Then Saints were rising in popularity which adds to league bank accounts. The Saints must have really POed all 31 other owners to get them to stand by and allow Goodell to do that.
A late tackle? Come on man. It takes a sad individual to be amused by an injury. Especially one like Vacarros. It's just a game and he plays or the other team. Guys are trying to make a living. I don't find any injury amusing.
That's pretty funny right there, especially from a Saints fan.

Why the hell was that game not called "Monkey Kong". Is he half barnyard animal?
Shigeru Miyamoto, the game's inventor and the one person who unquestionably knows the origins of the name he chose, has repeatedly affirmed that he used the word "donkey" to convey a sense of stubbornness and the name "Kong" to invoke the image of a gorilla.
