Just because there are undoubtedly others who haven't been caught doesn't mean you reserve punishment on those who have. What sect of society operates that way?

In addition, the NFL said that Hargrove told at least one player on another team that former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre was a target of the Saints' bounty pool in the 2009 NFC Championship Game and that Hargrove obstructed the league's investigation in 2010 when he wasn't truthful with investigators.
Smith, according to the NFL, helped former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams create and fund the bounty pool when he was a captain of the defense.
Vilma, also is alleged to have helped Williams create and fund the program. Also, the NFL said Vilma pledged $10,000 in cash to any Saints player who knocked former Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner out of the 2009 divisional playoff game involving the teams and then repeated the pledge for Favre for the NFC title game.
So now he's being honest about not being honest. Honestly!

Must've learned that from DRad, right GTPhd?

Which skyrockets the day the kid chooses to go somewhere else.

The most appropriate actions aren't suspensions, but hefty fines paid to a pool for players injured during the seasons that the bounties occured.

I would think if anybody had actually gotten seriously hurt when this stuff was happening that would have been a major lawsuit.

That probably is a driver for the suspensions. Somebody gets hurt a few years from now, if they could have gone back and said "Hey, you knew bounty-type stuff had gone on and you didn't do much about it...yada yada yada" that would be a lot of litigating. Now at least the league can say they reacted strongly when they did find out about it.

Intersting blend of fact, innuendo, reasonable suspicion and biting sarcasm.

Did you not see the cheap shot on Kurt Warner that Hargove did? What about the blatent late hit on Farve in the NFCCG Those guys didn't know where the hell they were.
