It appears the Saints ran a bounty system in their 2009-2011 seasons. What should their punishment be?

Players were paid to make good hits or "cart-offs." The NFL investigated this a few years back, but claimed a lack of evidence. This time around the League says it has convincing evidence.


Penalties are likely to come down hard on players, staff, and the legal entity itself...perhaps the stiffest in NFL history. What say you?

I say the NFL should stand back, remove all barriers to litigation, and let injured players take all these thugs to the bank: joint and several liability for every player and employee, including those on the offensive side of the game who were aware of the bounty and did not say or do anything to stop it.

If the litigation wipes out the Saints, then "Adiose!"

    Financial incentives to inflict injury so severe that a player has to be carted off the field? Sounds like assault and conspiracy to commit assault to me--what are the penalties for that? Injuries in sports could be life threatening. Since when are football players exempt from laws protecting us from killing each other?

    I'm old enough to remember when they played football for the love of the game --not to become millionaires. How did it come to this?

    Exactly. This bounty is the moral equivalent of taking out a contract on someone.

    They should pay some cash to Buddy Ryan for the idea.
