Where is the evidence to warrant that type of response when they previously let other teams get away with it like the Packers in 2007 and the popular "Smash for Cash" program funded by Reggie White in 1996? Why are the Saints and their "performance pool" different?

Where is the evidence?

More importantly, where is a fucking apology from this shitbag?

Goodell is just the kind of guy that says NO MORE NOT ON MY WATCH. He's a grandstander, but puts on the this fake ass humility WE'RE ALL ABOUT PLAYER SAFETY.

He was extreme in his punishment, but thinking he did what he did to keep the Saints out of a Superdome SB is a stretch to say the least.

Re: Who's the worst Commissioner in the big 4 sports (NHL, NBA, NFL, MLB)?

Really, what we could use is an additional bye week in the NFL, the NBA season cut down to like 70 games, MLB cut down to 140ish, and I have no idea how many games are in an NHL season, Bettman lost me as a fan after the fucking first lockout(2 in 7 years is ridiculous).

None of them care about player safety, just their bottom lines.

Right, he wants these players to play an extra game a season too lmao (all for player safety obv). I forgot about that insanity. I agree Stacks, an extra bye is what is needed, not an extra game. You can easily cut a pre-season game to account for the bye week.

An extra bye could really destroy a team's momentum though. There is that.

Let's not forget the Giants and that 41-0 shellacking they gave the Vikings in the 2000 NFC title game. Bounty system fo' sho'.

umm you do realize everyone agrees on the fact that there was a bounty system in Saints organization, right? It wasn't like the older commish(cant spell his name) said that all the suspensions were of wrong doing and that the Saints didn't deserve them, he just pointed out the fact that there was no way of proving which players did what in the program and therefore suspending them wasn't right.

And just because other teams in the past got away with it doesn't mean the Saints should have. Team shouldn't be employing any team of bounty systems as it isn't safe and it does put players at risk in a game where players are already normally at risk.

They called him the Lion of Lannister to his face...

...and whispered "Kingslayer" behind his back

The Packers in 2007 were on his watch considering he assumed the head honcho role in 2006. You can't set a precedent of letting one team off scott free and giving the other team the Mussolini treatment.

Then why the extreme punishment in one case and not the other? The precedent had been set. He FLAT OUT LIED about evidence that he supposedly had. When he was ordered to show the court the thousands of pages of documents he claimed, HE SUBSEQUENTLY RECUSED HIMSELF FROM THE SITUATION.

This couldn't be more wrong. Tagliabue acknowledged that certain players DID take part in a "performance pool" for big hits and defensive plays, but not intent to injure as was orginally claimed. However, he completely shredded the NFL's claim of payments for cart offs and how there were certain "bounties" on certain players' heads (Favre and Warner).

You can't set a precedent for one team and crucify the other. Simply can't do it.

Exactly Magic, Kirk Gibson was on steroids to recover faster when he hit his walk off shot in the World Series, but baseball changed their tune on that issue, just like the NFL is allowed to make things that were once done, illegal. You can't ban what hasn't been done before, look at goal tending in basketball, and the use of midgets as pinch hitters in baseball.
