    Interesting read my friend.
    Thanks.

    On a seperate note:.......


    What thread was it in that somebody was trying to convince me that PFT was the best site on the web.

    Nothing but credible reporting on stuff that coaches and players read or something like that.

    Brother, I guess he was on the mark there......... :
    (That was being sarcastic by the way)
    I don't refer to it as PFT, I refer to it as PFFFFT.

    Aren't they the same ones that also said, Chilly would be fired as early as last week?
    Not really,
    it was posted on vikesgeek.blogspot.com.
    PFT picked it up, but was careful to point out that they had never heard of the blog and didn't give it any creditability.
    Besides, if they post something in their rumor mill then keep in mind that it is exactly that.
    A rumor.

    League looking into report of Packers players' 'bounty' offers

    By CHRIS JENKINS, AP Sports Writer
    November 19, 2007


    GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- NFL officials are investigating whether Green Bay Packers players offered payments to teammates for achieving specific defensive goals.

    League rules prohibit teams and players "from offering or accepting bonuses to a player for his or his team's performance against a particular team, a particular opposing player or players, or a particular group of an opposing team."


    League spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed the investigation Monday.

    ESPN reported that Packers defensive backs offered to pay the team's defensive linemen $500 each if there were able to hold Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson under 100 yards rushing two weeks ago, and another $500 for holding Carolina to under 60 yards rushing as a team on Sunday.

    Peterson was held to 45 yards rushing before he left the Vikings' Nov. 11 loss to the Packers with an injury. But the Panthers rushed for 131 yards in Sunday's loss to Green Bay.

    Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Monday morning he was not aware of the situation, but had not yet spoken to general manager Ted Thompson.

    "I have no knowledge of that," McCarthy said. "I have not been made aware of that. I haven't talked to Ted today, so if it's something that happened this morning, we have not spoken."

    Packers players were not available to the media on Monday after their 31-17 victory over Carolina.
    Skol!
    Go Vikings!

    Green Bay - If the players' reaction Tuesday was any indication, the National Football League's investigation into whether the Green Bay Packers violated league rules prohibiting bonuses for in-game goals won't yield much.

    On the same day that Adrian Peterson returned to the practice field, his Vikings teammates questioned the value of such an incentive.

    This shit is really pissing me off. IMO this gives the defense a reason to hurt Peterson. I am bitter about this and can't stop thinking about it. Where is Cajun with all that classy talk?

    Williams added: "We don't need a bounty because we'll whip you either way. That's what we do. I know that's what they pay me for, anyway. I don't need no extra money for it."

    "One player, who asked not to be identified, said the incentive was offered to the defensive linemen, but the money was never paid out after the team got wind of what was going on."

    I was watching an interview here on a local news station and Al Harris said, "Are you calling me a liar." He was refering to the fact that he knew nothing about what was going on. Yes Al Harris you are a liar and a piece of shit.

    This ones gets me too.

    "For what? They couldn't get nothing from me," Woodson said. "I don't know (anything)."

    Sounds guilty to me.
