‘Bout to be another day of pearl-clutching over bounties up in… well, not here, since we view the media reaction as a mixture of knee-jerky bullsh*t and Saints schadenfreude, but probably everywhere else there will be that. The takeaway from the Gregggggg locker room audio isn’t that Gregg Williams is a blood-thirsty monster so much as he is a breathtakingly oblivious derptard.
What’s stunning though is the NFL was deep into its investigation of the Saints and had already contacted the team when Williams made a fiery speech to his players, audio of which was uncovered by Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports via documentary filmmaker Sean Pamphilon, who was present for the meeting with cameras.
BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA What a stoop. Enjoy your future career in landscaping. For all the talk about Frank Gore, it might have made some sense to mention Vernon Davis more than once in his bounty checklist in retrospect. Famous unspoken last words, I guess. My favorite part is where Williams asks his players to target spectators. That’s cartoonish supervillainy.
What are the odds that an enterprising YouTube mixologist has this autotuned by the end of the day? Even money? Is DJ Steve Porter still in that trade? Either way, no doubt that someone will be on it.
Saints players: AAAHHHHHH THE FINGER THING MEANS THE TAXES BOUNTIES
If true, this may be the worst example of how insane Gregg Williams really is. If true, there is no way Williams will ever coach in the NFL again. Yahoo! Sports' Jason Cole has added the latest layer to the Bountygate story, and this time there is some pretty damning audio evidence of how psychotic the former New Orleans defensive coordinator really is. The story reveals that...
Former Tampa Buccaneers legend Warren Sapp has once again cast his opinion regarding the New Orleans Saints ongoing soap opera.
In an interview with The Contra Costa Times, Sapp responded to the audio tape that surfaced yesterday of former Saints DC Gregg Williams more or less demanding that his players maim certain 49ers prior to a NFC Wild Card playoff game last season.
When the NFL released coaching discipline for Bountygate, it stated that Gregg Williams would be able to appeal his “indefinite” suspension after one year. After hearing audio of one of Williams’ speeches to Saints defenders, his suspension needs to be definite and everlasting.
Gregg Williams bounty talk freakout will dominate the news today, so it looks like we’ll need any excuse to escape the rampant outrage and grandstanding wherever possible. Except there’s not a whole lot else going on to distract from the sanctimony. Bummer. In news fit only for post reaching, RBIII did get a chance to meet with Condoleezza Rice. Huh. That’s… [Nantz voice...
The whole Gregg Williams tape thing has me thinking about football when I should be enjoying golf or baseball (You win, ESPN & Derek Medlin. I give up.)
As you may have heard, football is a violent game. It is so violent, in fact, that long-term participation in the sport is all but guaranteed to cause serious health problems in later years. Even short-term participation (lets...
As if the regular season matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the New Orleans Saints did not have enough built-in drama, the pregame speech by Gregg Williams before last season’s playoff matchup may be the ultimate bulletin board material, months before players even take the field. Recently released recordings made during a documentary of
When we hear a comment, regardless of its importance, context is everything, and sometimes it takes the passage of time to bring to light the true context behind things players and coaches say.
As we all know by now, Gregg Williams was slammed with an indefinite suspension last month by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. The penalty is the most severe punishment ever handed down to...
There is no way to defend Gregg Williams now, no way to hear those words on tape and not acknowledge that the former defensive coordinator of the New Orleans Saints crossed lines in ways that not only deserved, but demanded significant punishment.
Whatever you thought of Bountygate before -- and the notion that everyone in the NFL operates this way has been a persistent undercurrent...
As a vilifed group showed up to beg for a reduced sentence, the brainchild of their crime stared down more evidence that he should never again be paid to coach football on any level.
Gregg Williams ought to be banned for life.
New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton visited the NFL’s mothership Thursday, to appeal to the compassionate side of his judge, jury and arbitrator—commissioner...
Former NFL linebacker Antonio Pierce played under former New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams when they were both a part of the Washington Redskins organization in 2004.
Pierce, who now works for ESPN, sat down with Rachel Nichols and gave his thoughts on the Saints bounty scandal and talked about his time with Williams.
After listening to the audio of Williams’...
