    [quote user="ibbill"][quote user="bLuereverie"]I think it's beyond stupid. We all know hitlists exist for every team, but why would an NFL player find extra incentive in $1k to possibly lay an illegal hit they know would land them a $25k fine.[/quote]

    Sounds stupid it is stupid.

    I know this that next Falcons N.O. game there will be some Falcon head hunters for Brees running up the score on them.

    It is one of the most violent games around.You rub a teams nose into it human nature will come into play and they will get even. Thats a fact.

    I understand players "getting even" for a perceived cheap shot. But organized bounty hunting?

      Could this be the Second Time in a row we win a Super Bowl and end up with the 31st pick?

        Seems like organized bounty has be going on a long time by a lot of teams. According to a few tweets I have read by X players.

        Favre indicated that it's nothing new for players to try to hurt each other.

        "Said or unsaid, guys do it anyway," Favre said. "If they can drill you and get you out, they will."

          Hit Lists exist for every team on every week.
          i.e. Kyle Williams, Jermichael's name on a lockerroom chalk board, public predictions of pounding Brady

          There is a big difference between wanting to hurt a player and wanting to injure them.

          In a contact sport, you want to impose your will and dominate a player physically. You want them hurt.

          Wanting players injured is talking about compromising their careers and livelihood.

          It's a fine line in semantics but a huge difference in action. That difference is in how you go about it. I recall a lot of people praising 7 knocked out QBs as if it were an official stat, which is fine because they were the byproduct of legal hits.

          The Saints on the other hand were dumb enough to create a system that was blatantly against the rules, were warned about but still continued to operate it.

            No because the Saints traded this year's first rounder for Ingram last year.

              What a piece of low life garbage Greg Williams is. Sean Payton is not much better. Look where Williams is now, with Jeff Fisher and the Rams. Fisher and Williams have been buds since their days together with the Titans. And we all know that the Titans have been known to be dirty in the past.</P>


              </P>


              So now, watch out for the Rams D. Maybe not much so though, since Williams will be under the microscope from this point on. </P>


              </P>


              I remember when Fisher's name was mentioned on these boards to be our next head coach when Coughlin was going to be fired etc etc. The Giants are a class organization. I'm sure noone would want Fisher and that ****** bag Williams in our organization.</P>


              </P>


              And to think, all of the sob stories after Katrina and how Sean Payton, Drew Brees and the organization gave that nasty dirty *** city hope! All I can say is karma is a *****. It will come back to haunt all those that were part of this inexcusable and dirty tactic!</P>

                I knew along the Saints were dirty **** especially when they faced the Giants. And now, they won't get away with it next season.

                    Now I'm hearing........Titans (Greg Williams) had bounty on Peyton Manning. You gotta wonder if they had a bounty on certain Giants player.

                        [quote user="RoanokeFan"]Listening to Pat Kirwan on SIRIUS earlier, he opined this may just be the tip of the iceberg. A foremer Redskins player, now in the front office, acknowledged the practice when Williams was there.

                        Depending on how widespread this is, meaning how many teams are involved, someone may/should get banned.

                        According to Kirwan, the NFL has been investigating these allegations for quite some time and now believe they have enough information to move forward with the penalty phase. Williams has acknowledged the practice and apologized. Part of his apology included his admission that "we knew it was wrong."
                        [/quote]

                        Thanks Roanoke. Hoping this is not the end of the consequences for Williams or the Saints as the NFL enters the penalty phase. This is truly vile.

                          Just had the same thoughts. The NFL will not want to be implicated as doing too little once the civil suits start flying.

                            Now the question has to be what will the commissioner do to penalize the Saints?</P>


                            Major fines and draft picks will be taken without question. But is that enough? Not by a long shot if you ask me. </P>


                            Can you prevent them from signing potential free agents?</P>


                            Do you suspend players for 4 games or less in the upcoming season?</P>


                            Should Greg Williams be able to be employed by the NFL? (Rams)</P>


                            Whatever Goodell decides to do I expect it to be severe and swift...</P>

                                If I'm Brees, I'd demand a trade because teams are going to target him LOL.
