You really don't see what's wrong with this picture? You have no problem with bounties??




Bounty is the quilted quicker picker upper!!

I haven't seen any Saints players twisting anyone knees. That's silly. First of all if they're caught the penalty is too severe. The fine from the league would surpass any cash from the team's pot. GW isn't going around telling his guys to intentionally hurt a guy and Sharper backed that up. If you knock someone out of the game then so be it....as long as it's a clean hit.

Are you serious? GW started a bounty program that gave EXTRA rewards for knocking key players out of the game. Is knocking someone out of a game not hurting them?

As long as it's a clean hit, huh? You're high as a kite if you really think GW said, hey, let's knock Kurt Warner's ass out of this ball game, I'll pay you thousands for, but gosh darn it, it better be clean! LOL. Yeah. Unless it's a random accident like, for example, when a guy's foot gets stuck in the turf and his knee gets all twisted up when tackled, guys typically don't get knocked out of a game on a clean hit or form tackle. What does typically knock guys out of games are head shots, giving QB's that extra drive into the turf on a sack, tackling a guy at his knees, etc etc. And hey, if you did that in GW's defense, you get extra cheddar. It might draw a flag, but that dude's hurt, and you get that bounty. That's all good, right?

Hmm. Not so silly it seems.

NFL.com news: Peterson is latest opponent to call out Saints for dirty play

AP: "Guys are going to try to take their shots when we're on the pile and try to twist it up and things like that. "I felt like it kind of got overboard. I got up and kind of got in his face. Thank God I was able to keep my composure."


Maybe Darren Sharper shouldn't be believed:


Peterson's accusations come one week after members of the Titans called Saints safety Roman Harper dirty for his play during the New Orleans' 22-17 win. The NFL fined Harper $15,000 for roughing the passer on a helmet-to-helmet hit in that game and another $7,500 for unnecessary roughness.

Re: New Orleans Saints/Washington Redskins: Bounty Hunters

i feel there is no way gw was the only guy out there running a program like this. and it's not all that surprising to me that something like this would be going on. i'm sure it has gotten toned down in the past few years but it's time for it to be over with at this point in time. we now know way too much about the effects of the game on these players bodies. if the game has to be tweaked for player safety then so be it. i think the nfl's punishment will be a stiff one and should be. if they want to put a stop to this then do it, don't fine players and then let the coaches and staffs get off light.

He wanted to knock out the top players on the opponents offense, and likened doing so to cutting off the head of a snake. He wanted the opponents best players out of the game, plain and simple. That doesn't mean he didn't reward good play that wasn't dirty- a la Philip Daniels getting $1500 for 4 sacks- but to encourage "kill shots" is deplorable. You're talking about peoples lives and livelihood. Football is dangerous enough without that kind of thuggery.

I mean, Williams himself apologized for it, called it a mistake, and said he knew it was wrong while he was doing it. Like you said, if the main culprit admitted it and said he was wrong, what else is there to defend?

Those of you excusing any of this should just stop. You're lowering the overall IQ of this message board.
Okay I completely agree with you that what is going on is wrong. My point is if it is wrong no matter what, intentional injury or not, and this is going on all over the league for a long time, shouldn't every team in the league involved get in trouble, not just the Saints? That's like jailing the ring leader of a gang of murders and letting the rest go free.

Re: New Orleans Saints/Washington Redskins: Bounty Hunters

Bills might be next. At most the Redskins may face a monetary fine, if that. Saints main issue is they knew, were warned, and didn't stop it. Not the case with the Redskins

The Saints are different from the other murderers because they were warned and kept on going. The other murderers are stealthy.

Yep kinda thought they would too.. wonder if the titans and jags are lying and denying anything happened when he was with them.


NFL.com news: Williams reportedly also ran 'bounty' system as Bills' head coach
