    so paying someone $10,000 to hit someone legally, but just try and legally hit them in the knee and hope they tear the acl is fine then, right?

    It was cool to see Roger get it again. The best ever was still Roger at the 2011 NFL draft.

    ... thing is, the only thing the Saints did "illegal" was talk about it.

    whoa whoa.... a new twist in the story.... doesn't this kinda f*ck **** up again...

    According to the transcripts, Williams said then-assistant Vitt [their HC right now] responded to a suggestion that the pay-for-pain setup be abandoned with an obscenity-filled speech about how NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell "wasn't going to ... tell us to ... stop doing what won us the Super Bowl. This has been going on in the ... National Football League forever, and it will go on here forever, when they run (me) out of there, it will still go on." - NFL.com (AP Article; link below)

    messy, very messy....

    I was talking to my kids this past weekend about taking accountability for their own actions and not use "other people" as their excuse to do it as well.

    Example:
    I was talking to my kids about cleaning their room this weekend. My youngest son looked at me and said "well you need to clean your computer desk." They do this every time they ever do anything wrong. "well mom did it, well you did it, well grandma did it" Its like they believe that because others do it, that they are allowed to and cant choose to do the right thing. No accountability.

    I feel like I should have that talk with some of you now........

    Just because other teams MAY do it, its okay? Explain that logic to me.


    Maybe i look at it differently. You say that everyone is doing it so its no big deal. Well if everyone is doing it, its a bigger deal than we are admitting.

    I know I think differently than a lot of people on this board, but I thought this was common sense.
