That's true. I owe Bert a public apology. J-Mike might have posted something like "Junior Seau is dead. [Poll] Is Clay Matthews a better OLB than Junior Seau ever was?"

CJ is correct, at least he admits it.

Did anyone btw try more than Harrison for the Steelers to earhole & concuss players? His whining about a mere half mil in fines is chump change compared to the rain of hell that came down on Vilma & the Saints.

Can Vilma even have contact with the team, like watch the games he's missing in their hdqtrs? I know he's barred from OTAs, but knowing Goodell he might even ban him from calling other Saints on his cell. Goodell would throw him in jail if he could, probably wanted to lifetime ban him but was talked out of it.

Most embarrassed player in the NFL today: Drew Brees. Not only did he have nada to do with it, but he now has a big target on him from 31 other teams & he is very well aware of it. His aggravation pissoff level must be off the charts this wk.

I doubt it. I really don't think the other players from other teams' defenses are going to care that much. They aren't that concerned about defending the integrity of the NFL. Same for coaches.

Lest this little implication get out of hand unnecessarily, I went back and watched every Steelers offensive play from that game. The stats crew credited the 49ers with eight quarterback hits. Most were straightforward. Defenders were not twisting Roethlisberger's lower body, rolling over onto his sore ankle or stepping on him blatantly

...


Smith and NaVorro Bowman had free shots on Roethlisberger late in the game. They did not exploit those opportunities at additional expense to Roethlisberger. Bowman specifically had an opportunity to fall on Roethlisberger on the Steelers' final play, but he did not.
Glad we could clear that one up.

Quote:
The latest chunk of it comes from Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, who buries a bombshell in an article regarding the fallout of the Anthony Hargrove declaration.

Writes Triplett: “[A]ccording to a source close to [former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg] Williams, the NFL has also misrepresented what Williams said in interviews with the league. According to the source, Williams never admitted a ‘bounty program’ was in place and that the league ‘rephrased his statements to satisfy its needs.’ The source also said Williams never identified any players for their involvement in a pay-for-performance or bounty program.”

Those are strong, stunning allegations. Given the mounting attacks on the quality of the league’s evidence, the time has come for the NFL to disclose it. All. Publicly. Every piece and shred of it.

It’s far too late for the NFL to hide behind “personnel matters” and “privacy rights.” Through a series of detailed statements that the NFL has released containing summaries and characterizations of evidence, the reputations of Gregg Williams, Sean Payton, Joe Vitt, Mickey Loomis, Anthony Hargrove, Scott Fujita, Will Smith, and Jonathan Vilma forever have been sullied. The least the league can do at this point is share with all of us the evidence that justified publicly branding these eight men as cheaters, liars, and worse.
http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...ms-interviews/

Quote:
The league’s case against the Saints arises in part from an email message from Mike Ornstein in which Ornstein purports to contribute $5,000 to a bounty on Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

The league’s March 21 statement regarding non-player bounty discipline characterized the email as follows: “[P]rior to the Saints’ opening game in 2011, Coach Payton received an email from a close associate that stated in part, ‘PS Greg Williams put me down for $5000 on Rogers [sic].’ When shown the email during the course of the investigation, Coach Payton stated that it referred to a ‘bounty’ on Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers.”

Yes, it referred to a bounty on Rodgers. But now Ornstein, the NFLPA, lawyer Peter Ginsberg (who represents Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma) are taking issue with the league’s broader characterization of the email.

According to the Associated Press, Ornstein claims that the reference to Rodgers, contained in an email sent by Ornstein from prison, was part of a “running joke.” Ornstein said that the subject of bounties had been a topic of periodic kidding in the wake of the Vikings’ claim that a bounty had been placed on Brett Favre in the 2009 NFC title game.

In reality, the Ornstein email wasn’t directly sent to Payton. Instead, it came to team spokesman Greg Bensel, who then forwarded it to the coaching staff with this message: “email from Orny (he asked that I send it) the dude is in prison so I told him I would.”

“When I wrote that email, I was in jail,” Ornstein said. “How was I going to pay for it? In stamps? I’m in federal jail in Florence.”

And so, now that more details are available regarding the Ornstein email, the players’ representative have pushed back.

“Ornstein’s email is just another example of the speciousness of the quote-unquote evidence that Commissioner Goodell claims to have to support his erroneous accusations against Jonathan and the other players,” Ginsberg told the Associated Press. “As more of the evidence is revealed in the media, it is becoming more and more apparent how irresponsible the NFL’s actions have been.”

Richard Smith, hired by the NFLPA to advise players regarding the bounty investigation, also complained about the Ornstein email message. “The NFL has not provided the players with any information like this,” Smith said. “It is unfortunate that they continue to withhold evidence that can show players’ innocence. This email proves what we have feared: what they’ve been selling to the media as evidence doesn’t match up with the truth.”

Between the Anthony Hargrove declaration and the Ornstein email, it’s hard to disagree with Ginsberg and Smith. Unless and until the NFL produces raw evidence that demonstrates player involvement in a bounty program or player funding of payments made to other players for knocking opponents out of games, suspicions will remain that the NFL is embellishing the bounty evidence in order to justify hitting the Saints hard enough to deter all teams, players, and coaches from using bounties in the future.
http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...rnstein-email/

The horror the horror I will never let my kids watch the NFL. They try to hurt people OMG.

Starting to look like most people overreacted

I agree with everything Triplett wrote. If there's evidence then let's see it.

I read that earlier. You know aiming for an injury isn't against the NFL rules right? We did it against Romo earlier in the season. Now when you are getting paid financial bonus incentives...that's different. So not sure why you are posting that. It's not even a story.

By the way, your Saints need to get Brees signed already. They are an unhappy quarterback away from being a 4-12 team.

1. Just because I felt like rustling some jimmies.

2. I have listened to the GW audio and other than "I got the first one", I didn't hear a thing wrong. Teams do target injuries. You are 100% correct.

Ginger Roger Goodell wants to make a deal with Jonathan Vilma. If Vilma drops his lawsuits then he will reduce his suspension. Goodell must have a really strong case.

I hope that Vilma turns down the deal and takes this the distance.

Mort wrong as usual:

NFL senior VP of communications Greg Aiello: "Today's report about a settlement offer by the league to Jonathan Vilma is completely inaccurate. No such settlement offer has been made. We will continue to respect the court proceedings on this matter and have no further comment at this time."

And while the NFL has vehemently denied the accuracy of the story at all, I can tell you that the other side — the sources who provided this information to us last night — have been equally adamant that we stand our ground, that the information is correct, that there have been settlement discussions, and that the NFL has offered to significantly lessen Jonathan Vilma’s suspension is he agrees to drop the defamation suit.”
