Well, after “Bounty-Gate” exploded in their faces, the New Orleans Saints learned they were being penalized by having their head coach suspended for a year, a loss of a draft pick and some fines. Gregg Williams is banned indefinitely from the NFL and the entire football world is confused by this shit.
Well today, it’s been reported that there are more penalties coming down the tubes from the Ginger Commish’s office. Linebacker Jonathan Vilma is now being suspended for the 2012 season. Defensive end Will Smith (The Fresh Prince) is serving a four game suspension, Defensive end Anthony Hargrove (now with the Packers) is out for eight games and Linebacker Scotty Fujita (now with the Browns) will be sidelined for three games.
I don’t get it. I just don’t get it. Why don’t they just suspend the entire franchise for the season and be done with it? This is ridiculous. They’re killing teams, ruining competitiveness in the league and frankly at this point, you would think the NCAA is involved in this shit somehow.
It’s crazy. Bounties are bad. Shut the hell up with that. Bounties are a part of EVERY sport in some capacity. To think that a professional athlete is going to just go hurting people to make what amounts to pocket change for them is outrageous. But the NFL being the NFL, is “coming down hard” on these “egregious actions” because they fear they’ll be found liable for former players’ health care costs and that isn’t good business for a BILLION dollar organization apparently.
Further, they should suspend the Patriots for “Spy-Gate”, they should suspend the Browns for “Sucking Since Forever” and the Redskins for “Dan Snyder”. Might as well throw the Cowboys on the pile for “Jerry Jones” and the Panthers for “Jerry Richardson Being A Racist Dipshit”.
Can we also suspend the Ravens for having a murderer on their team? Wait, the NFL allowed Ray Lewis to come back, as well as Dog hater Michael Vick, so….let’s just ban the Goddamned NFL and be done with it.
It makes my head hurt. I’m going to get a case of Miller Lite Punch Top Cans and see if I can just forget about all this bullshit.
