Williams meets with NFL Security

Posted on: March 5, 2012 5:47 pm
 
Gregg Williams, one of the men at the center of the bounty controversy involving the New Orleans Saints, met with officials from NFL Security on Monday, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

I'm told these officials had a great many more questions for Williams about his role not just in the Saints' scandal but also if he was involved in other instances of organizing bounties. Newspaper reports have linked Williams to bounty programs at his previous coaching stops in Washington and Buffalo. No other details of the meeting were available.

The NFL's investigation, I'm told, is focusing on the players involved in the Saints bounty scandal but perhaps even more on Williams, coach Sean Payton and general manager Mickey Loomis.

One message the NFL wants to make clear is that coaches and managers are responsible for the actions of their players and others. Commissioner Roger Goodell also wants to make a statement that player safety is paramount.

It's expected the NFL will release its disciplinary decisions within the next few weeks.

A coach who does not need to coach again. How is this different than a parent telling their kid to take out an opponent? This shows how shallow Williams and all the players who ever "benefited" from this program are. Premeditation. But I guess if you don't think your team can compete, take a shortcut. Class act.

This is where you are wrong.. Its not that other teams do it all the time, its that it is common practice leaguewide...

I think it's awesome how some people come to the defense of the Saints with "other teams do it all the time". Let there be a scandal with a team you don't like, then all of a sudden they're the dirtiest, cheapest team around.

I completely agree with this, and it really doesn't matter IF someone was seriously injured or had a career ending injury. I'm glad that Kurt Warner or Brett Farve didn't end up in the ER because of this idiot. This type of coaching is totally unacceptable.

I think this is worse than what Pete Rose did; a ban for life seems appropriate.
