Here’s a memo to those talking heads: IT’S FOOTBALL!
Football is a violent game. Football is a game where you see big hits – lots of them. Some of those hits are quite vicious (see Steelers-Ravens, Giants-Cowboys, and Patriots-Jets).
Sure bounties are against the rules, but guess what – it happens EVERYWHERE. Remember when word got out that the Ravens had bounties on Hines Ward and Rashard Mendenhall a few years ago during a Monday Night game? Anyone remember the “Bounty Bowl” in 1989?
Everyone is doing it folks. It’s just that the Saints were the ones who got caught.
If those talking heads do not want to see bounties in sports, take up badminton. Talk about making a mountain out of a God-dang mole hill…
