Re: Saints investigated for "Bounty Program"

Classic "point to bad behavior to justify other bad behavior" argument. You're losing this argument hard, PG. Nobody here said we lost the game because of dirty play. There were, however, certain plays, such as the first interception, that were influenced by dirty plays that weren't called. No matt...

Re: Saints investigated for "Bounty Program"

^Again, its tackle football. You think they were cheap, I think the Saints played just fine. They were flagged for a couple, the ones they werent flagged for, no biggie, refs miss calls every game. You dont think the Vikings have ever benefitted from a non call???? Gimme a break.

Re: Saints investigated for "Bounty Program"

How liquored up were you for that game anyway? Hitting a QB after they hand the ball off isn't "good hard play". Hitting a QB low from behind on purpose isn't "good hard play". Hitting high/low isn't "good hard play". Why are you so hung up on "sour grapes"? We lost, great, it's over and done. That...

Re: Saints investigated for "Bounty Program"

LOL. Im done with this thread. The pouting and sour grapes from the Vikings being given an #### kickin is sickening. The Saints beat us fair and square. They were flagged a couple times, just like happens in every game. Its football. Since they had a bounty and they whooped the Vikings, they have to...

Re: Saints investigated for "Bounty Program"

They were flagged during the game, they were fined after the game. So not only did they have the illegal bounties that they will be punished for, but they repeatedly broke a rule called "unnecessary roughness" during the game. Not sure why some people are refusing to accept it... So every player an...

Re: Saints investigated for "Bounty Program"

If that is true, why do you think the NFL investigated in the first place? Do you think the league would mount an investigation like it did simply because a single team cried sour grapes after a tough loss? Come on, purple guy, there had to be more to it than sour grapes. This type of thing could d...

Re: Saints investigated for "Bounty Program"

They also state that you don't offer up bounties to your players. That's what the Bounty Rule is. And that's why what they did was wrong and why they should be punished for it, hard. It's not whining, it's pointing out a fact. The Saints broke the rules, hard. And we all saw them do it back then an...

Re: Saints investigated for "Bounty Program"

:rolling: Now the refs were probably paid off since the Vikings lost. Ridicolous. Doesnt matter if you outplay another team, the rules clearly state, to win, you have to outscore the other team, sorta what the whole scoreboard thingy is for.

Re: Saints investigated for "Bounty Program"

Favre said no big deal. Warner said no big deal. They didnt condone the bounty end of it, but neither had any problems with the way the Saints played. Like Favre said, its football. No reason for the bounty, but even the 2 guys who were supposedly targeted, arent crying about it and claiming they ar...

Re: Saints investigated for "Bounty Program"

Dirty? Nothing dirty about that! The bounty is obviously against league rules, they way they played was just fine, IMO. Most Vikings fans just want to find an excuse for the loss. They definately shouldnt have had a bounty, but they didnt play dirty. Sour grapes tasting good I assume?? Losers alway...

Re: Saints investigated for "Bounty Program"

I don't believe they played dirty. But having a bounty system that encouraged hurting opposing players? That's just reprehensible. Chuck Bednarik didn't need a bounty system to deliver bone-crushing hits, and Conrad Dobler didn't need one to be considered a dirty player. It's the fact it was system...

An aweful organiztion for playing tough, aggressive, mean defense??? Nope, Id be happy as heck if the Vikings D played anywhere near as aggressive as Williams' D plays.

Re: Saints investigated for "Bounty Program"

Some of the hits on Favre in that game were absolutely dirty, I don't know where you're coming from PG. Low shots at Favre's knees, late hits, some from his blindside. It's not just Viking fans who felt that way, almost anyone I know who watched that game other than Saints fans thought the Vikings ...

Re: Saints investigated for "Bounty Program"

Actually their aggressive D wasn't working out to their benefit that game...it was probably Chilly's greatest game he ever called, they we're being WAY over aggressive in hopes of injuring and we were doing what we wanted on O (which unfortunately involved fumbling, putting 12 men out, and INT)...I...

Re: Saints investigated for "Bounty Program"

You do recall it was the Vikings that whipped the Saints in nearly every statistical category in that game, right? And that they essentially beat themselves. If the choices are dirty or conservative, I choose conservative. I like rooting for a team that has integrity and would never resort to such ...
