    The NFL went to far in suspending Saints Coach Sean Payton for an entire year, until he is acting Head Coach of the Saints again, I plan on not watching,attending or buying any nfl merchandise.

    I encourage everyone else to do the same.

    Offering bounties to hurt other players... I think 1 year is pretty short myself.

    If he wasn't aware of it - it was HIS crew... he should have been aware and therefore pays the penalty. Stop watching if you want to, but I'll be watching this year.

    But in hockey its ok to have goons,that usually suck,and there only goal is to knock out a star on the other team. So its ok to pay bonus to knock out players in football.

    Since the NFL doesn't want the Saints to do well, Im going to be watching real football instead.
     
  7. Yeah..not a Brees/Payton fan.

    Im more of a Patriots fans,but I just dont think what Payton or the Saints did was wrong. The commissioner of the NFL is trying to ruin the league.

    Their goal isn't to hurt the opponent to the point where they aren't able to play because of an injury, their goal is to take them off the puck and make them afraid to go after the puck. It's part of the game.

    I just want to point out that a myriad of ex-football players ALL said this was a consistent part of any football program, although maybe not as widespread as the Saints. I don't understand the increasingly soft game that Roger Goodell is shaping the league towards as it looks in just a short time it may very well be two-hand touch.
     
  11. I'll agree with you on that. If anyone can tell me what a catch is in the NFL, or when you are allowed to touch a quarterback or wide receiver, I'd love to know.

    I don't think he had any choice in the way he handled this situation tho. This is what he has been preaching since he came into office, and the whole bounty thing got blown way out of proportion by the media.

    That's what the saints wanted to do,not hurt them where there career is over.

    @ohaider compared to many sports,the NFL has become to much of a sport for wimps.

    In hockey the goons don't go to hurt the other players. They fight when the other player hurts one of their own.

    If it happened to the head coach of the titans, I'd be calling for a boycott as well.

    The NFL needs to become more violent, like how the NHL is

    How about you boycott when they have tsa groping you when you go to a game, or boycott them when they have the governments custom enforcers looking for knockoffs of there jersey on our tax payer dollars.
