The NFL has revealed an investigation that has shown a "Bounty Hunter Scheme" by the New Orleans Saints. Involved is the General Manager Mickey Loomis, Gregg Williams, then the defensive coordinator, Head Coach Sean Payton and many players.
Opposing team players were targeted to be hit and cause injury serious enough to force the players off the field. The more severe the inury, the more "bounty" the player received. Some of the players contributed to the "bounty fund."
At this time, no punishment has been made, but definitely will be coming. NFL writers are speculating fines, suspensions and even loss of team draft picks.
I am a fan of the Saints, but this type of behavior has no place in the NFL or any sport. There has to be severe consequences to put a stop to this. A message sent that will make this not acceptable.
When is winning a game more important than a players health? When is winning more important than a life threatening injury?
Sounds like a house cleaning may be needed!!!
