Former New Orleans Saints defensive end Anthony Hargrove, who now plays for the Seattle Seahawks, has released a statement today regarding his involvement in the now infamous bounty program instituted by Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.
In the statement Hargrove, who injured Brett Favre on a late hit in the 2009 NFC Championship Game, explicitly denied that the team placed a bounty on Favre.
In regards to the hit I made on Brett Favre that has been talked about: it was one of about 5 times I got to him and the only one that was late. I agree it was a late hit, but in the heat of the moment I was simply trying to make a play. I can assure you that when I got up, I was thinking 2 things, one, that I cost my team, and two, that I might have just cost myself some money if the NFL fined me. To put things in perspective, I received a game ball for my play that day and yet got fined while receiving nothing and expecting to receive nothing for the play some keep referencing.
The Saints won the 2009 NFC Championship Game in overtime, 31-28. Favre threw for 310 yards on 28-46 passing, including one touchdown and two interceptions.

So, there is an update to our story this morning on the Brett Favre Twitter account story. This is going to confuse many of you. Stick with us. Brett Favre’s media coordinators want you to know that someone hacked @BrettFavre4 on Sunday night. The account prior to March 5 was legitimately Brett Favre. Everything since March 5 is the work of the hacker.
Here is the statement from...
Brett Favre. Perhaps his greatest strength was his greatest weakness. In a survival of the fittest like tactic from the days of the Wild West, for 20 years Favre brought his gunslinger mentality to various cities throughout the NFL. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn’t, but the fact of the matter remains that when Favre
So far we’re enamored by the Brett Favre Twitter Experience @BrettFavre4. Yes, the account is verified. This is the real deal. When Brett tweets, “I know I kept coming back to the NFL, but I think it’s safe to say that Im officially retired,” it brings a tear to our eyes. The guy has only been tweeting for a few days, but he’s already leaving us with such gems as “Man...
For once, a YouTube comment cuts to the heart of a story.
Next Media Animation makes a good point here — that the NFL glosses over their scandals by depicting them as isolated incidents, and is basically a violence glorification machine — but the way they make it is classic Taiwanese batsh*t insanity, beginning with a “high horse” in the ESPN studios literally zero seconds...
Former New Orleans Saints defensive end Anthony Hargrove attempted to clear the air on Thursday about his hit on Brett Favre during the 2009 NFC Championship Game.
With the Saints admitting to having an organized bounty program in place during a three-year period, Hargrove issued a statement on his hit which knocked Favre out of the game with an ankle injury.
"The late hit...
WE'VE BEEN DUPED
After Twitter initiated the process of determining its authenticity, it has been determined that the Twitter account believed to be Brett Favre's is a phony.
UPDATE: Brett Favre’s media coordinators issued a statement indicating that @BrettFavre4 is legit but was hacked Sunday night.
Former Saints DL Anthony Hargrove said in a statement that he received “nothing” for his part in a high-low hit on then-Vikings QB Brett Favre in the 2009 NFC Championship Game, despite comments he reportedly made after Favre was injured on the play.
I can not tell whether or not Brett Favre intervened his verified Brett Favre Twitter account to tell Randy Moss (image below) the truth or whether the hackers knew Brett Favre's daughter went to the hospital. The best part seemed to be that Twitter had verified the account due to the Randy Moss (@DaRealOtisMoss) messages to the Old Gunslinger. Well it seems like the Favre...
- Brett Favre’s Twitter was hacked earlier this week, prompting a statement from Favre’s representatives to ESPN explaining that the last actual message Favre sent out was on Sunday and that anything posted since then has been written by an imposter who gained access to the account probably because Favre set his password as havingfunoutthere.

Thumbs up to The Colts and Peyton Manning for acting like adults and avoiding another drama filled breakup.
So it is official, the Indianapolis Colts have released Peyton Manning, making Manning a free agent, free to sign with anyone he wants. This, Losers, is how the Brett Favre vs. Green Bay Packers thing should have went down. There are parallels everywhere and the Colts and...
