Fish and Denmark

I'm honestly baffled I can't take this nearly as straightforwardly as it is being portrayed here. Doesn't anyone else feel like there' something rotten in Denmark? I think it's been pretty much admitted that this bounty stuff is normal. Yeah, maybe the NFL, twits that they are, want to make an example of somebody and need to make an example of somebody, otherwise the behaviour won't cease. But, why the Saints? I mean, yeah, there's been harping about Saints cheap shots for, what?, a couple of years? Is that it? Were the Saints just the easy target? It still doesn't fly, though. Not for me, anyways. Maybe I'm jumping at shadows but, darned, if this just doesn't look like a setup to me. Let's see. It happens right after the combine. Right as we are trying to figure out what to do with our immense overabundance of talent and how to keep them all. We eat something called, "dried fish" in Maine - not me, the locals, smelling it is enough for me - and this just smells way too much like it. I don't know. It just seems to me that this usually happens with renegades. People who won't play by the imecilic, unwritten rules. A perfect example is Belichick. The guy might as well have told the powers-that-be in the NFL to go take a hike and, lordy, lordy, he gets hammered with spy-gate a handful of years ago. So, is someone in the Saints org not playing nicely? Or, is it just some chump with a big mouth giving the NFL what they needed to "make an example"?
