    While watching the Lions/Saints SNF game this past season, I noticed some Saints defenders twisting, pulling, unnecessarily holding on to the legs of Lions players after they tackled them. At the time, I figured they were trying to goad the Lions into taking personal foul penalties (which some players took the bait).

    Now, with this allegation, perhaps something additional was going on...? <shrug>

    I wonder what Kurt Warner thinks about this after unnecessarily getting knocked the **** out after an INT in the 2009 playoffs.

    Was saying it all year....but I am just surprised they were
    stupid enough to do it formally, with coaches involved. Then again. Sean Payton is an arrogant SOB.

    I think its bad. Really bad. But not worse than Spygate. Maybe on par.

    I love how your shat defense has been rolled by a couple teams from the West these last 2 years.

    I guess if your squad isn't cheating, it isn't winning.

    Benson didn't even try to deny it. The only problem is a lot of these stiffs have probably moved on to different teams so the Saints won't suffer any consequences.
    Awesome.

    So by that logic, your team should get a huge fine and forfeit it's first round draft pick.

    I think the main issue is that it sounds like basically the entire organization (including the owner and GM) knew that this thing was going on.

    Spygate was never anywhere near that.

    Does Donte Whitner get a cut of the bounty? So many Saint fans couldn't wait for the game to end to call that a dirty hit.
    Draft well and then coach em up!

    First of all, at least this explains why the Saints blitzed the hell out of the 49ers in the first pre-season game the past year. Didn't think of it much then, nor do I care much about it now.

    Secondly, I think I'll wait till far more info comes out on this to make a final judgment, as I think it's quite premature to say 'oh this is waaaay more serious than spygate and whatnot. On the surface, I don't think it's anywhere near spygate, but I guess we'll see.

    I know one thing for sure...if the Bucs had a bounty system they failed miserably last season.

    Another SB winner raping the rule book. I hope the NFL drops the hammer on them, but they'll probably get away with something less severe.

    The Eagles must have had a bounty for missed tackles. Jarrad Page made a killing!
