I didn't want to write anything about the BountyGate coverage knowing I could never give an unbiased, fair assessment of the scandal as a lifelong Saints fan. I've always been curious what it'd be like to have my team at the center of a scandal big enough it got its own "Gate" attached to it... now I know, it sucks. This is worse than going through the years of Billy Joe Hobert AND Billy Joe Tolliver. The actions of Gregg Williams, Sean Payton, Mickey Loomis, the players, and everyone else in BountyGate have taken a team whose story was admired and embraced by a nation - from the depths of Hurricane Katrina all the way to a Super Bowl triumph - and blotted it with an ugly scandal. They've hurt their organization, their league, and their fans in a drastic way.
Make no mistake, the Saints organization and those involved should pay for what transpired, if for nothing else than their sheer arrogance and stupidity in lying to the league and thinking they ...

ST. LOUIS (AP) For now, it's business as usual for Gregg Williams, who is on the job behind closed doors with the rest of the St. Louis assistant coaches.
The parking lot at the team's training facility is full this week because there's plenty to do. Free agency starts next week, and there will be minicamps before and after the draft for the Rams, plus they're all...
In the midst of the Gregg Williams “Bounty-Gate” scandal, the NFL Network has decided not to re-air the 2009 NFC Championship Game between the Minnesota Vikings at the New Orleans Saints. The NFL Network has been re-airing “classic” games over the past few days and the re-airing of the 2009 NFC Championship game was supposed to take place on Monday at 3pm EST...
Even with March Madness almost upon us, spring training beginning, and the NBA and NHL season in full swing, the NFL still found a way to make headlines.
As you probably already know, former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has been accused of incentivizing his players to purposely injure opponents’ top players by paying organizing a system non-contract bonuses.
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...
Defensive lineman Kedric Golston says Gregg Williams offered cash incentives for certain plays when Williams was the defensive coordinator of the Washington Redskins.
Golston said Monday that Williams would reward players for a ''sack or an interception'' or ''a pivotal play.'' But Golston also said: ''I've never seen a player get any...
Then again it would probably have unintended consequences as it did for a Swedish floorball coach who found himself in trouble after using a unique method to coach defense.
The unnamed coach of the FBC Engelholm floorball team recently returned from suspension after another floorball coach reported him for employing his “Snygga brudar i försvaret” or “Hot Babes on Defense”...
This isn't the real brett farve. I apologize to everyone.

Well, it was bound to happen one of these days: Brett Favre's Twitter account has been hacked. The brand spanking new account was hacked on Monday, and since then, the hacker has been pretending to be Favre. He finally admitted to being a "parody" account...
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.
Spygate has been thrust back into the limelight following the recent revelations regarding the New Orleans Saints' bounty program. But why? Aside from both instances breaking NFL rules, is there really a comparison to be made between the two? The Patriots' Spygate situation involved videotaping defensive coaches' signals, whereas the Saints' bounty program -- spearheaded...
The world of sports is a funny thing. One minute - an athlete, coach or franchise can be on top of the world and the next minute, fall flat on their face. In 2009 the New Orleans Saints stood atop the football universe as Super Bowl Champs. Every player and coach on that team became hero's to a city that was literally left in ruin due to the devastation left in 2005 by...
