I want a radio show where we just screen callers to weed out the GOOD ones, and spend 2-3 hours berating the sh*t out of the idiots

Carlos Rogers thinks the way Goodell handles things is "kind of crazy" | ProFootballTalk
"Guys going out there to hurt guys for a couple of thousand dollars when you basically can get fined by the league for $15,000, it just doesn’t add out to me," Rogers said. "A lot of people do their little system things where you make a big play, you make a big hit or you get an interception and you return it for a touchdown — different positions have pots. But to say you go out and intentionally hurt a guy for for a couple of thousand dollars to get fined by the league $15,000 and even more, that just doesn’t add up."

NFL’s carrot could be keeping coaches in line | ProFootballTalk
Regardless of whether Sean Payton and Gregg Williams fear the NFL's stick, they have good reason to be concerned that the NFL will remove its carrot. Lost to date in the discussion regarding whether coaches caught up in the bounty scandal fear retribution from the league office if they talk is th...

Next wave of bounty litigation will be an uphill climb for players | ProFootballTalk
Monday's tweet from Jonathan Vilma confirms what anyone following the Saints bounty scandal already knew. Unless he's planning to buy a condo at Del Boca Vista, "Phase 2" means litigation. Technically, the litigation will be in the form of an attack on an arbitration award.

Bounty coaches fear further sanctions from league office | ProFootballTalk
...we’ve heard from multiple sources that Williams wants to comment publicly, specifically regarding the league’s contention that Williams corroborated the claim that linebacker Jonathan Vilma offered $10,000 to anyone who knocked Brett Favre out of the 2009 NFC title game. But Williams to date has been muzzled by his lawyer, who apparently believes that any effort to dispute the notion that Williams threw a player under the bounty bus will be overcome by the impact of disputing the league’s evidence on Williams’ ability to be reinstated after the 2012 season.

DREW BREES!!

Saints quarterback Drew Brees will know within a week if he is franchise tagged for a third time in 2013, whether he’ll collect nearly $4 million more than the NFL says he is due.

QB participation shows importance of new offseason program - NFL.com
The irony here is that while all these other QBs have been treating Wednesdays in May like Wednesdays in October, it's Drew Brees who's been absent this year, because of his contract situation. Brees ran the most detailed and complex of the lockout camps last offseason, and it was Brees whom Rodgers was juxtaposed against last year. Funny thing is, in a way, Rodgers is validating Brees' 2011 intentions with his 2012 actions.

Brees gets bumped to Thursday by Letterman | ProFootballTalk
Well, if I've lost my mind, this isn't evidence of it. I tuned in to The Late Show With David Letterman at 11:35 p.m. ET, planning to watch Drew Brees' appearance, and then to post anything new or different he might say, after spending pretty much the whole day saying all sorts of things to all s...
