    Re: Saints Players Suspended

    The suspensions are probably warranted, but I honestly don't think a bounty system is that big of a deal. Teams have done it off the record for years. Most defensive coordinators, in college or the pros, have told their DE's to take the quarterback out (legally, but take him out nontheless).

    If these "bounty hits" they've landed on players drew personal foul penalties, that's a different story. But from what I've read most of the hits were legal.

    I guess I don't see what the big deal is.

    Just my opinion and bash me if you want, but all the crap made out of the bounty in getting rediculous.

    Paying players for hard hits is no big deal, paying players and encouraging them to target known injuries is low brow, IMO.

    Just because it happens doesn't mean it's right. And I'd bet it's not happening in the NFL for awhile.

    You really believe that? There will still be under the table stuff going on, we did it in high school, pros will continue to do it.

    Under the table stuff got at least 2 people year long suspensions, next people caught will be worse. Maybe it won't be 100% gone, but drastically, drastically reduced.

    Re: Saints Players Suspended

    After Goodell brought the hammer down on Sean Payton, Gregg Williams and Joe Vitt he had to do the same with the most prominently involved players. All the penalties for the coaches and players were harsh but fair. Goodell catches a lot of **** from players and fans, but I think that by making an example of the Saints organization he was right on in making it clear that under the table payouts for knocking guys out of a game will not be tolerated.
