I'm really getting to dislike this guy. Show some humility - if your blindness had been any less lucky, someone might have lost a life, let alone their career, on your team's sickening hit squad mentality And that's not even getting into the fact you tried to block the investigation which is just as wrong.

Oh, I'm sure we'll have WHERE IN THE WORLD IS HEAD COACH SEAN PAYTON updates all throughout the season.

"We have some important divisional matchups here in week 14, and here's a photo of Sean Payton at the Great Wall of China."

I have zero issue with anyone sticking it to Rodger Godell-Vader. What he did was wrong. He diserved a suspension... but not a full year.

Rodger Godell is slowly killing football by making defense completely illegal

Bounties are wrong. Intentionally hurting someone is wrong. But Godell seems to think the solution is just to have all defense be illegal. Fark him.

Not sure why you attached that other rant to your complaint about Payton being suspended for a full year. Payton was suspended for a full year because he lied to the NFL.

Agreed. I've argued the same thing the whole time. Until this Jimmy Buffett thing - let's make it two, just because Jimmy Buffett sucks.

Chewin' on Taco Bell
Talkin' to Parcells
All them bounties, gonna be claimed
Meetin' with Goodell
16 games? Pure hell
Pop those Vicodin, they're startin' to kick in

Wastin' away again in Suspensionville
Searching for my lost docket of games
Some people claim that there's a Goodell to blame,
But I know
It's my own damn fault.

I sure know the reason
I'm suspended this season
Nothin to show but this sweet TV gig
But it's a real beauty
Suspended from duty
How it got here, I've every clue

Wastin' away again in Suspensionville
Searching for my lost docket of games
Some people claim that there's a Goodell to blame,
But I know
It's my own damn fault.

I blew out my knee joints
Covered the spread at 5 points
Me and Mickey, hadda cruise back home
But there's bounties on the table
And they caused a party
When the Saints won the Lombardi

Wastin' away again in Suspensionville
Searching for my lost docket of games
Some people claim that there's a Goodell to blame,
But I know
It's my own damn fault.

the free payton shirts were out in full force over the final four weekend.

/ saw blondie and the black keys at the final four shindig. got hot and tired of being around too many people, went to a bar to drink too much.
// didn't feel like heading out last night for jimmy buffet. maybe i would have to see sean payton
/// nope... probably would have still stayed home.
/V i think jimmy buffet is more liked by the tourists

Relax. He did something that every other coach and team does, and have been doing since the start of football. He just got caught. He should be suspended and fined, but not for a whole year.

Though I'm hardly a fan of his novelty music, I've always heard that Jimmy Buffet concerts are a great time, but I've never been able to get to one. Maybe one of these days. Because Hawaiian shirts an atmosphere where it's acceptable to drink red, fruity drinks with a slice of pineapple and a parasol? Count me in!

Question.
Did the bounties effect on the field play any more then any good motivational speech does?
Did the Saints defense get more flags for illegal hits then other teams?

check this out.....had Jerry not pasted in 1995, there had already been some discussions of a Buffett / Dead summer 1996 tour. Buffett's been known to cover the dead from time to time, apparently....I think Uncle John's Band, FOTD, and i think i read Eyes of the World a few times.

I don't know... every fan of his I know are either frat boys or people who buy $100 Tommy Bahama shirts. Not the crowd I, personally, want to hang with.

This is a prime example of the misguided attitude towards football that needs to change both on the field and in the fanbase.

I think R. God went too far taking a 1st round draft pick from the Pats over trivial nonsense but I see the case here, he needs to be seen as extreme on any issue connected to player safety because the NFL is going to spend a lot of time in court for the foreseeable future

I think he didn't go far enough with the pats in comparison. Either the Pats didn't do anything wrong and deserved no penalty or they gained a competitive advantage made a mockery of fair competition which deserves a large penalty and a suspension for the coach. And while I understand WHY they'd (the league) throw this hail mary with respect to the lawsuit, they are ultimately unrelated and it won't help a got damn bit. Big hit helmet to helmet concussions are a red herring after all - because the plaintiffs are gonna trot out expert after expert happy to say the evidence suggests you can experience this post-career syndrome without having any concussions. The lifetime of smaller hits will fark you up quite nicely all by themselves.

I think it is about future lawsuits, not the kind a disgruntled gambler might file but about serious issues of liability.

That's the 900 lb elephant in goodell's living room. and so far not many folks are talking about it. everyone is focused on concussions and dirty hits but there's plenty of evidence that the guys in the trenches have suffered as much if not more than anyone. I don't see how they can deal with that and still play the game.

This just in: there are degrees of criminality and there's proportionality of punishment. Sometimes you murder someone in cold blood and get life, sometimes you slap a biatch and get community service. On the NFL Justice Scale, I'd say this one falls somewhere in between.

I mean, there are all kinds of little ways that people intentionally cheat in the NFL. Most of them are addressed with nothing more than 15-yard penalties. What the Pats did was worse than that, but you can't just say that all cheating makes "a mockery of fair competition" and merits a severe punishment.

A) 10,000 dollars would motivate me to do a lot of things.

B) I don't think so. But lots of ways to hurt someone that aren't against the rules.
 
2012-04-02 09:24:33 PM
Time will tell who has fell and whose been left behind, when you go your way and i go mine. Saints (like so many other self admitted teams for decades) went way overboard on the idiot bounty system. No excuses. Broken rule is a broken rule. So, also, the NFL in their response. Except the Saints are a small market team. Easy pickings. Just found out players under a coach's direction hit hard for a reason? Really? Genie's out of the bottle on both sides, Rodger. Good luck with that. Wait? Is that a player's union attorney I see? More on the horizon. Popcorn, please.

You? Sure.
Someone already getting paid 100,000s a game? Not so much.

So if they hit someone in a fashion that is not against any NFL rule, they should be punished for it if that person happens to get hurt?

Did the Saints defense play any differently then the average NFL defense?
Did more players from the opposing offense become hurt playing against the Saints then they did against playing every other team in the NFL?

If I were a lawyer defending players against criminal charges, I'd try to get 12 jurors who have no clue what the Saints jerseys look like. Then I'd youtube "NFL's Hardest Hits 2012" and play some of those videos for them. "If you can pick out the Saints players in these videos, we'll concede the case."

Most jurors would probably pick anyone hitting Roethlisberger's ankles....
