    NFL says Saints created 'bounty' program from 2009-2011

    NFL.com news: NFL says Saints created 'bounty' program from 2009-2011

    Surprise surprise and what will the league do? apologise for not finding it sooner and wag a finger at the Saints and say " don't do it again ". I'd love to see them fined and lose draft choices but it not going to happen unfortunately.

    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    I knew they were a bunch of dirty mother*&#$@%^!!! Ban them from the league. This makes me so mad. They may have just topped all others as my "most hated" team.

    Disgraceful and outrageous behavior. Also not the least bit surprising to anyone with a functional set of eyes who watched that NFC Championship Game. I expect they'll lose some draft picks for this. Given the place where their roster is right now, this will hopefully hurt them in the years to come. Sadly, it won't change the fact that they head-hunted their way to a Lombardi Trophy.

    I foresee severe penalties coming down from the league. Multiple draft picks, and sanctions.

    How did the actual payments get made, and were they included in the salary cap numbers? Did the players report that income on their tax returns?

    If they were paying players under the table outside of the salary cap the league will come down extra hard.

    Sad truth is that all the players and coaches benefited from the cheating, and even after being caught I'm sure they don't have any regrets.

    Not surprising at all. I hope the league comes down on them hard. Im also interested to see if the saints try and play yet another katrina card in this case.
    None

    So the Saints will probably lose some draft picks and be fined a few hundred thousand dollars. So freakin what? They got a Superbowl victory out of it.

    I guarantee you ask every team in the league if they would trade some draft picks and some cash for a Superbowl, and all 32 teams would say yes. I expect these type of tactics to escalate unless the league starts really cracking down. Like forfeiting victories similar to college ball. But I doubt that would ever happen since the Patriots won 3 Superbowls and got caught cheating WITH VIDEOTAPED EVIDENCE and didn't forfeit any wins.
    Skol!
    Go Vikings!

    Wouldn't surprise me if Greg Williams gets suspended as well, possibly for a year.
