    Heard it on the radio this afternoon. Was actually shocked. Not that it occurred, but that it was the Saints.

    The Saints aren't the only ones

    Obviously, this is common.

    [itch bay] Dungy says it's a Gregg Williams/Jeff Fisher thing.

    Players doing it doesn't really bother me, as it's been going on for ages. Bit bothered by Williams participating, although not really surprised.

    I'm expecting Goddell to hit them hard. Wouldn't be shocked in Payton got hit hard too.

    Adam Schefter- This will be the biggest penalty ever handed down to an organization. It will far exceed the patriots losing their 1st rd pick and fined close to 1 million.

    50,000 pages of documents on this. Apprently every single player, coach, part of the organization knew about it.

    Reports are that fines leverages against players for bad behavior, missing practices, whatever ended up in the bounty fund.

    Wow, this is super [uck fay]ed up.

    It happens at all levels of football. One of my coaches in high school would pick a key player in each week's game, and the player that knocked him out of the game with a clean hit, got a steak dinner

    my cousin got a Big Mac for knocking Jason Witten down in the backfield during HS. He totally missed his lane just to go knock down Witten. He walked off to the sideline straight to his coach and said he wanted his Big Mac at practice on Monday.

    John Carney's a pretty rough dude. And I've heard he's got beef with Vinatieri. I wouldn't be surprised if he was the kingpin and set Gregg Williams up as the fall guy.

    It didn't give the Saints a competitive advantage so I see no need to take draft picks away. Fine some people and move on.

    NFL levied fines are donated.

    The last time I checked, "But everyone else is doing it!" isn't a defense. Paying to injury players is deplorable and immoral.

    I wasn't making a defense for their actions. However, I'm not going to act like this is an isolated event that only the Saints partake in either though.

    Ya, definitely has the fingerprints of a guy whose career was ended by an on-field injury to first mastermind the scheme. Dungy is such an ass.

    No doubt about that.

    I guess it's time to make an example out of someone and I couldn't imagine a team would want to see it happen to more.

    Unless you're the Patriots.

    What was the punishment for Spygate? One draft pick? And then he claimed the tapes offered no advantage and destroyed them before anyone else could look at them. Doesn't exactly seem even-handed to me.
