“The Saints are dirty!!” “They deserve to have their Superbowl taken away!!!” Anything imaginable that could be said about my hometown team has been said. The New Orleans Saints are being investigated by the NFL for taking part in a “bounty program.” Basically the allegations are that players were paid to take out certain members of the other team. I’ve must’ve talked to a lot of people about this and majority have no problem with it. I think the reason those people are so nonchalant about it is because it goes on with almost every team in the NFL. A number of teams have come out to say that they too had certain bounties on people. I just think we were the unlikely ones to get caught.
This man here. Gregg Williams, is the center of all this attention. He’s the Saints former defensive coordinator and now the Rams defensive coordinator. The penalty for our so called “bounty” program is to get draft picks taken away and of course the obvious fine from the commissioner. One of our so called “targets” Kurt Warner thought the hit he took in his final game in January 2010 was “completely legal.” My brother, on his blog, makes a good point basically saying that if the Saints were out to get people, why do we only have one Superbowl and why wasn’t our defense ranked higher? In closing, I hope this situation goes away real soon and all the suspensions and fines are handed out and everybody can put this behind them.
