some people only care about winning, and don't care what they have to do to win. and don't think if they cheated or broke rules or did something unethical to win, hurt someone in a way that ends their making their livelihood that it matters, cause oh well we won.
doesn't surprise me that the saints got caught, and that thier fans don't think any less of it. it's their mentality

Roger Goodell just got a new huge contract and he will make an example out of the New Orleans Saints. He will make a statement about player safety which has been the mantra for the past two years.

Barry Bond probably feels the same about his homerun record, but he is the only one
Enjoy your asterisk Saints fans, your SB win means crap now.

Id prefer a superbowl win with an asterisk than none

I thought Brett Favre was taking an unnecessary amount of punishment that game. Now hearing what was said about Vilma putting 10k on whoever knocked him out of the game makes me sick. Favre doesn't get hit late CONSTANTLY, He never grts hurt and Saints lise that one

I laugh at the fact that they actually put money on stuff like that. Pretty sure most NFL players dont need additional incentives to knock the bejesus out of their opponents....
This is a lot more common than you think. Several retired players have come out saying this is fairly common across the league. I'm not implying that is is right. It is against the rules and should be punished, but it is a part of the NFL culture. It like us making side bets on the golf course for the first birdie, sand trap hit, putt made, etc.

The vast majority of fans everywhere would agree.

Check out this story in your own ticker:
Atlanta Falcons star Roddy White calls it a “league thing” that goes far beyond the New Orleans Saints, the team the NFL said maintained a bounty pool in the last three seasons.

Yeah, the performances bounties are a common thing, not the "hurt someone" bounties.
