beatnic:I suspect that Roger Goodell won't be attending any public events when he visits New Orleans for next year's Superbowl.
clearlysuspect:Well I'm sure anyone from NO is going to think its unfair. Unfortunately, that simply isnt the case. This program was ongoing for 10 years. Three years ago, the NFL approached the owners and coaches and said if anyone has a program going on like this tell us now, without penalty, and stop! There have been signs posted in every NFL locker room stating that this is illegal ever since! The Saints knew it, the disobeyed, and then lied about it. The person I felt sorry for in all this was Roger Goodell! In the interview shortly following the decision, he literally looked like he had been crying. The NFL is his baby and if you think he wanted to basically destroy one of its greatest franchises then I think you may have some delusions about him. I've been a Sean Peyton fan for years, a Drew Brees fan, and we usually don't miss a Saints game. I think the rule is a very good rule to have, and I think the punishment was just. I'd be pretty pissed if I were Favre, Warner, Newton, Rodgers, and anyone else who was on the bounty list of players they were intentionally trying to injure!
gmill880:It HAD TO BE SEVERE enough to make anyone dumb enough to think about doing this again realize it's just not worth it .
Instead of trying to knock another teams elite players out ... just line your best up against my best , play by the damn rules , and let the best team win . Real simple .
