I also bet Kelly Clarkson will not flub the National Anthem & Madonna will wear fishnets-yes you can bet on that.

Seems M.I.A is making news for her use of her middle finger during Madonna's halftime performance. I expected to see Britney Spears or Eminem or someone like that get to perform. Seems every musical act got In on. The show.
Of course this was her first time performing at the Super Bowl halftime show & doesn't count for her previous performances in the locker rooms after Super Bowl's or in locker rooms for the NBA finals.

The longer Drew Brees remains unsigned the more likely it is the Saints lose Pro Bowl Guard Carl Nicks. Sigh. Just get this done-PLEASE!

IMO-maybe the Democrats could have scheduled their convention the week before & not screw up football. I won't get into politics here.
Seems like the Browns & Dolphins want to talk to the Rams about the 2nd pick of the Draft.

I completely disagree. The whole bounty situation is insane. These guys get paid millions of dollars to play a game. Like they need any more money to play the game. "Hey,lets purposely injure people" And this is coming from a Saints fan.
I think it will be interesting to see what the penalty ends up being handed down by the NFL, especially for Greg Williams. Some of the players who have been fined multiple times or suspended for hits where it was obvious that they were not trying to intentionally hurt another player will have a real legitimate argument against the league if they fail to suspend Williams for multiple games from his new job in St. Louis in addition to forcing him to pay a massive fine.

What is clear is that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is preparing to come down hard. After the Spygate scandal, Goodell stripped the Patriots of a first-round pick, fined Bill Belichick $500,000 and fined the Patriots $250,000. All indications are that the sanctions for the Saints will be significantly more severe.

On every level a bounty system is in place-in high school we got a tomahawk sticker for big hits. In some colleges the player who gets the big hit of the game can get a special locker or have their name on a wall. I dont oppose Professionals getting a few extra bucks for making a big hit-as long as its clean & legal. If the player intends to take out someone illegally then & only then IMO does it need to stop. I do understand its against NFL rules & if Mr. Goodell suspends Williams & Sean Payton I will not object. I just wanted to make my point a bit clearer, thanks for the time to read it.

With that said, though, when the coach is involved (or, as is apparent in this case, actually running the operation), I have a big problem with that. The coaches are supposed to know better and are supposed to be held to a higher standard. If I were Goodell, Gregg Williams would be suspended for the year, if not longer. Sean Payton and the Saints' GM should receive rather lengthy suspensions as well. And, just for the record as I'm not a fan of the Saints, I would support the exact same sanctions if it came out that Rex Ryan and Mike Pettine of the Jets were guilty of the same offenses.
The one thing I do hope that comes out of this whole discussion, though, is the outright hypocrisy of the NFL. They claim to be all about player safety, but the only players they care about are the ones that get the headlines and that you actually see in the spotlight on TV. The game has not gotten any safer for the offensive and defensive linemen, but that's OK because they're not viewed as "playmakers", even though the game is won and lost by them more often than by any other position player. James Harrison gets fined and suspended left and right for vicious hits and if Gregg Williams gets let off the hook with a fairly light sentence (which is what happened the last time Goodell was supposedly going to "drop the hammer", when he barely slapped the Patriots on the wrist for SpyGate), then he and the NFL will lose whatever sliver of credibility they have left.

I can't believe they couldn't get a deal with Brees done by now. Loomis needs to get this done. NOW. Then sign Nicks and Colston.

That whole refuse-to-trade-Carson Palmer fiasco,
I'm not sure that the Carson Palmer deal was a fiasco at all for the Bengals. It may have taken them roughly half the season, but they made out very well in that trade, and got a really good young QB in the draft as well. I think replacing Palmer with Dalton and Ochocinco with Green with a couple of first rounders tacked onto the top of that is a pretty good season of work for the Bengals front office.
On a separate note, now that Peyton Manning is expected to be released by the Colts, Mike Tannenbaum and Rex Ryan need to get to work to make him a Jet. It probably won't happen, but they need to get that done. Either they land him and become an instant contender or they really motivate Sanchez with their pursuit of Manning to really step up and prove that he's worth another contract in another year.
