As a football fan days like today can just kill your will to enjoy the sport.
The audio of a pre game speech, captured by filmmaker Sean Pamphilon, from Gregg Williams has been released. Use caution when viewing this video and remember; he is a passionate man (or dirty) talking to men. Here is a big of a preveiw of what was said ”At one point Williams says, ‘We hit (expletive) Smith right there’ — then he points under his chin (and continues) — ‘remember me,’ ” Pamphilon told Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports. “Then he rubs his thumb against his index and middle fingers — the cash sign — and says, ‘I got the first one. I got the first one. Go get it. Go lay that (expletive) out.’ ”
Everyone seems to be looking at this bounty issue the wrong way; we are focused on how these players could do this, which is true. However, let’s remember that young football players look up to NFL players and many will mimic their game after them. When has winning became so important to players that they, not only play “dirty”, but play with intent to do bodily harm. Isn’t that punishable in the court of law?
There is no reason for these suspesnions to be shortened, in fact after hearing the audio I think the suspensions should be greater. Sean Payton should be fired. As a head coach you know everthing that goes on with your team, from where your players are to what your coaches are teaching. As far as Gregg Williams he gives any coach a bad name and should never be allowed to take part of any football team, in any level, ever again.
