    So no complaints if Brees gets a late, hard tackle.

    Of course Tagliabue, the appointed arbitrar of Goodell, the former Commish, is going to 'affirm' Goodell's 'evidence' but revoke the suspensions. That's another way for the NFL to get out of being laughed at, because the league had no evidence.

    Bounty transcripts: Gregg Williams says Joe Vitt kept program going

    Former New Orleans defensive coordinator Gregg Williams testified that he tried to shut down the team's bounty system when the NFL began investigating but was overruled by interim Saints head coach Joe Vitt, according to transcripts from appeals hearings obtained by The Associated Press.

    At last someone with a real clue.

    The Saints' season was destroyed for no reason. The NFL had no evidence of a "bounty". That's totally BS.

    Sure they had an incentive program like all teams do for clean, legal, hits.

    Not a "bounty" program to intentionally "hurt" opposing players. Pay for performance is not the same as pay for injure.

    This whole fiasco was manufactured and blown way out of proportion by the *** wipe teet suckling media. Now the Saints have a reputation as being dirty and that's just not true. In fact their little incentive program didn't pay off if the hits were flagged or fined or were illegal.

    But in the end the NFL still got what they wanted.

    They created an "illusion" of false concern for player safety.

    They prevented a Super Bowl contender from the potential of hosting their own Super Bowl.

    Goodell can go to hell.

    I think a defense that can't stop anyone is what has prevented the Saints from hosting their own Superbowl.
