We should split the draft picks they lose with the Cardinals.
Jared Allen, Loadholt, KWill and Peterson should beat the hell out of Gregg Williams on the sideline when we go down to St. Louis this season.
Fuck that guy and everyone on that defense. Especially Bobby McCray.

Karma is a bitch, as Sean Peyton is already experiencing. Next year will be his other knee.

Fuck all the coaches and players who took part in this and the refs who swallowed their whistles in the NFCCG

Who cares at this point. So they had a bounty out. It all comes down to if the refs weren't calling the hits, why the hell didn't our defensive players bring the nasty as well?
In the end, the refs didn't call any of the hits/tackles and they won. Big deal. Move on. Nothing to see here.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

I knew they were head hunting from watching earlier games that year. It sucks, we really should have made the super bowel that year. We were good enough.

The refs not calling it is no surprise, they're the worst in professional sports, no questions asked. What is surprising is that one team could amass such a collection of scumbags to go along with this.
These bounties directly impacted the outcome of the 2009 playoffs. The Saints only scored 10 points in the second half of the Division round game against the Cardinals after intentionally hurting Kurt Warner to knock him out of the game, it was a two score game when they hurt him. The Cardinals only made into Saints territory once after his departure. Bobby McCray bypassed Levi Brown to hit Warner on that interception. Levi Brown made the tackle, Kurt Warner was knocked out of the game.
The following week, McCray hit Favre after a handoff. He also went low on him later in the game.
It's not fair of me to say that either team would have gone on to win the game if this hadn't occurred, but it's impact cannot be understated just because of other factors contributing to their wins. Regardless, pair this with the ridiculous officiating in the NFCCG and I'm even more sure we got screwed. We absolutely laid the groundwork for beating ourselves with turnovers, but when you're playing against the officials and a team with a specific goal of hurting players on your team, how can you overcome it?
This guy isn't even in the league anymore, he had a bad reputation already and a limited future so he collected on these bounties to put some cash in his pocket. There's no place in sports for anything like this. If people want an asterisk for the Patriots "spygate" the Saints better get one too.
What the Saints did wasn't just a football penalty, it was organized crime.
