Roger Goddell doesn't understand football. It's obvious that he just doesn't have a clue.

Re: Bountygate Punishment for the Saints

For the people who think the punishment is too harsh? What do you propose would be a better punishment?

I thought Williams should've gotten 6 games and Payton 2. The GM should've gotten 1 or 2. That's it.

It's like Goddell thinks he freakin' God or something... like he's trying too hard to prove that he's some kind of tough guy, with his fines, suspensions, can't hit wr's, QB's and what not. Enough already.
Last time the owners stepped in we lost $36 million in cap space.

Re: Bountygate Punishment for the Saints

I definitely think the Saints should have been punished but a year without their Payton- OUCH!

Re: Bountygate Punishment for the Saints

Gregg Williams got what he deserved. Sean Peyton was very dishonest and was very fortunate that his suspension was for only one year. It disgraces him as a head coach. Whatever players were involved they should have been punished as well.

Re: Bountygate Punishment for the Saints

Well, Warren Sapp called out Jeremy Shockey as the whistleblower behind this whole thing.

I saw that on NFL network, It's incredible that Sapp would out someone. I have a feeling Shockey's career will end this year...

Perhaps well agree to allow the NFL to screw us over with the cap if they promise not to screw us over with bountygate.
Had not thought of it this way - - but there is a sinister logic at the core of your reasoning here...

Re: Bountygate Punishment for the Saints

I wonder what the bounty in the NFL front office was for taking out a whole franchise?

Interesting rhetoric - - but answer this:

Are you and most of your friends ceasing to follow the NFL as it becomes flag football with robots as the participants?
If not, then the NFL and Roger Goodell - - as the commish and overseer of the NFL brand - - don't really care about your rhetoric.

Can you cite the survey that shows 99% of the players think this is wrong? Chris Kluwe's Twitter feed says he agrees with it. Are there 98 other Twitter feeds from players who say this is nonsense - - in addition to Drew Brees?

Comparing this to Spygate is interesting but it is apples and oranges. No one was injured based on Spygate. AND, Belichick and the Pats never lied to the league about what they were doing or had done. Their argument was that their actions obeyed the letter of the rule if not the spirit of the rule. The Saints were warned multiple times about this; they lied about its existence; then they did nothing to stop it.

With regard to your ranting over the "pussification" of pro football, the NFL will not even begin to care until it sees revenues decrease significantly over a period of time. Until then, the trend is for more player safety - - even though you don't like it. Given that you don't like it, the NFL is telling you very politely to take your sports interests elsewhere. They are betting that you are not going to do that; they are betting that after you post your screed here and on a few other message boards, you will continue to tune into games, buy official team logo "stuff" and attend a game or two when you can. Only you can prove them wrong...

If you think that the Management Council - - made up of owners - - did not know how all this was proceeding and what was coming down BEFORE it hit the wires, you are living in a delusion. They knew and they approved - - tacitly.
