"Bounty Scandal": An Exercise In Coordinated Divisiveness

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

At that point the entire process the Saints fans have endured became crystal clear. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that the NFL wanted the results that they got, and why.

The term “cover your ass” has been used in the media numerous times to define the Saints efforts to control the damage caused by the scandal, yet that’s exactly why the NFL played the soap opera out in the way they did.

There are hundreds of players lawsuits pending against the NFL as we go about our business today, and the NFL has begun laying the foundation for their defense in the media, with the Saints as the sacrificial lambs.

Among the results of the NFL campaign are the fans of 31 teams lined up to hand a beating to the Saints fans in every conceivable form of social media, including the chat rooms of NFL.com, in Twitter, Facebook and the like.

The NFL has even been able to get Saints fans fighting amongst themselves as evidenced in the comments at Nola.com below articles on the subject.

Congratulations Roger, your experiment was a success.

(By the way, I apologize for the picture I used, certainly none of us wanted to see Roger Goodell’s ugly mug today. When I pulled the first 100 pic results from US Presswire wanting merely the NFL logo, there was only one poor example, LOL.)

    What is NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell up to today look like no good he knows the Saints Fans knows he up to know good. A question was ask where is Tom Benson Roger Goodell must have them all hiding. Tom Benson need to get on Roger Goodell like Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys NFL don’t raise bell with Jerry.Owners stand up for your team.

    I think Roger Goodell is talking us Saints Fans fighting among themselves plus the other 31tea ms fans fighting with Saints like watching a soap opera so why are we as Saints Fans fighting among ourselves. We must get pass this and focus on we or hosting the Super Bowl and keep our team lifted up because what’s done is done the only thing the New Orleans Saints and Fans can do is show the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the 31 teams fans that we are not the laughing stock of the show nor are lamb. We are the WHO DAT NATION the strongest fans
    base and we love our team know matter what because that 31 teams they have or had a bounty program also, so you fans of the other 31 teams your team might be next hitting are not going to stop for either teams so don’t let Roger Goodell think we Saints fans are the only ones your team could be next because it’s not funny Like Roger Goodell and media takes it to be. NFL just need to come up a game plan so they can stay off the media and trying to cover up this mess that should have been straight decade a go.

    Larry, it’s the old strategy of “Divide & Conquer” taken into sports. The Saints had people worried in the preseason that we were a danger if we got to play for the SB title in our own dome.

    Magyver; do you think the New Orleans Saints were setup with this bounty scandal there are to much mess between the NFL & NFLPA to me it sounds like the NFL trying to say the Saints injury all these guy’s. Also said they want to watch game tape between the Saints & 49er’s what would happen if the NFL is wrong I believe they are being setup by the NFL to cover some of the lawsuits do you thank NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell did everything to protect the safety of the players. Me myself I don’t think he did because hard hitting been going on when he took sit I’m just saying this is a big puzzle its going to get deeper than it is now what you thank about it.
