It'll always be that way. Oh...and hitting guys in the knee is a legal hit. The Shanahan's taught this blocking style for years.
Did you even listen to the audio? Obviously not.

I did. Not too big a deal. I know I'm in the minority.

Re: New Orleans Saints/Washington Redskins: Bounty Hunters

I mean I think one of the big reasons this is damning is because it's pretty clear evidence that Williams continued the bounty program after being told by the league not to

Re: New Orleans Saints/Washington Redskins: Bounty Hunters

Without reading what Rogers said (because I'm at work and don't have access to PFT lol) it sounds like he's just saying what he's saying in the hopes they'll punish us, which I think is doubtful. If anything though I'd imagine it will be a while before we see GW in the NFL again, if ever.

Adam Schefter ‏ @AdamSchefter

Keep in mind, NFL contacted Saints before these playoffs and basically told them to stop bounties. Saints didn't take warnings seriously.

Not really.

Quote:
Rogers said it started as a pool of money consisting of fines imposed by Williams for players being late to meetings or missing meetings, along with money kicked in by players. Payments would be made for big plays, like interceptions.

At some point, the program expanded.

“It went on to guys just suggesting stuff in a room,” Rogers said. “If you knock this person out, let’s say a receiver, he comes across the middle. Safety knocks him out, a legal hit, you get this amount of money.”

Rogers insisted that the word “bounty” overstates the situation, and he claims that the payment system is a product of “competition in the [meeting] room,” and that “once the ball is snapped you’re not thinking about it.”

Though Rogers stopped short of saying that money was offered to 49ers players for efforts during the NFC title game, he said that players recognized that, when facing Giants quarterback Eli Manning, “We need to take him out.”

Rogers also doesn’t believe that the current effort to punish the Saints will change the realities of pro football. “Will guys stop doing it in their [meeting] rooms? I doubt it.”

He also sounded off on Commissioner Roger Goodell’s habit of fining players for making big hits, arguing that “it’d probably be different” if Goodell had played pro football and understood how the game really works.

I’ve been following the NFL long enough to understand how it investigative process really works. When faced with a rabbit hole that may go far deeper than anyone at the league office wants to know or acknowledge it goes, the NFL often is inclined to cover the opening with dirt and move on.

Re: New Orleans Saints/Washington Redskins: Bounty Hunters

Yet again....

The reason the Saints got nailed to the cross is because they were asked 3 times by Goodell about the bounty and was informed there was no bounty. Basically the Saints lied. I would guess if they were honest the first time he simply would have told them to stop and called it a warning. The Saints lied 3 times and all 3 times Goodell instructed them to stop if they had a bounty. He's found out they lied all 3 times to him which is why the severe punishment.

The bounty itself is one thing, but the harsh punishment is due to the lies he received. Had Goodell been investigating a bounty while GW was here and the team lied we too would be punished just as hard.
