Tagliabue - What the Saints Did Is OK With Me

Wow.  He finds that the players did engage in a bounty program which paid money for injuries, yet finds that since the case is such a mess he will just let the players off the hook!

Again, wow.

Question for the NFL in my "The NFL Doesn't Give a Fuck About Concussions" case:  "Isn't it true that you had a former commissioner of the NFL recently find that bounty programs where players are paid to injure other players result in no suspensions?"  Answer - Yes.

How exactly do you defend the whole "The NFL under Paul Tagliabue didn't give a fuck about players" case when Tagliabue himself says that guys who intend to injure other players deserve no suspensions?

Punitive damages award anyone?
