    GIANTS' ELI MANNING, TRAVIS BECKUM REACT TO BOUNTYGATE SUSPENSIONS

    GIANTS' ELI MANNING, TRAVIS BECKUM REACT TO BOUNTYGATE SUSPENSIONS

    "The NFL handed down
    suspensions for players involved in Bountygate on Wednesday morning, including a
    historic 16-game ban for New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma. In
    addition to Vilma, defensive lineman Anthony Hardgrove, now with the Green Bay
    Packers, has been suspended for eight games, defensive end Will Smith has been
    suspended for four games and linebacker Scott Fujita, now with the Cleveland
    Browns, has been suspended for three games. All players are expected to appeal
    their suspension.


    While taking part in a conference call to help promote his upcoming appearance on Saturday Night Live, New York
    Giants quarterback Eli Manning was asked to give his thoughts on the Bountygate
    suspensions. As you might expect, Manning was in full support of the NFL
    Commissioner.





    "[Roger Goodell] is doing the right thing to make sure that this doesn’t
    happen ever again," Manning said.




    Shortly after Eli's call, and mixed in amidst the angry tweets from Saints
    players, Big Blue tight end Travis Beckum took to Twitter to share his own
    personal, yet indirect, thoughts on the situation.





    "The Giants are a class organization. We play by the rules and are taught to
    play as men! It's not a coincidence we are Super Bowl champs," he tweeted.




    Finally, former Giants running back Tiki Barber shared his .02 on the
    suspensions and Bountygate as a whole.





    "Funded malicious intent and violation of the sanctity of the brotherhood of
    players is core to egregiousness of Saints bounty program," Barber tweeted. "Pay for performance is ok … pay to end a
    game/season/career is not – but if it happens in the natural course of the
    brutality, it's okay."




    Although most seem to agree that some sort of punishment needed to be handed
    down, a season-long suspension was commonly referred to as "over the top." Some,
    like Giants wide receiver Ramses Barden, went as far as to say "It's going to be
    a long time before Roger Goodell makes it back on anybody's Christmas list."

    What's wrong with being an intellectual? Society needs more intellectuals.

    Never said there was anything wrong with it. However, in Tiki's case he just comes off as being smug instead of smart.

    Tiki's language isn't intellectual -- it's tortured. Lots of big words for the sake of big words; his sentences are barely understandable.

    don't you know it's uncool to be intellectual? Stupid and ignorant is how we should all go through life.

    I'm not a fan of Tiki (anymore), but I do like what he said.
