Reds Fan Since 1971
Gregg Williams isn't looking so good right now.
How do we know he's not Mel Torme?
I think we are about to witness a life-time ban from the NFL. Frankly I think Payton should be right there with him, but he'll probably slither his way out of the worst of it.
I figured this whole thing was probably overblown a bit by the NFL, but that it was still a suspension and punishment that needed to happen. After listening to that audio tape, any coach who was in the room when that speech was made should not ever coach again.
That is beyond ridiculous to specifically target hitting guys in the head, and even more so guys who have had concussions in the past. Talking about going after an ACL or vernon davis ankles in the pile has no place in the game whatsoever.
There is a distinct difference between telling your guys to go knock the **** out of someone and hit em as hard as you can (both fine) and the garbage that Williams was spewing.
Joey Votto does not care about RBI.
NEITHER SHOULD ANY OF US
Pay attention to the open sky
I look forward to the NFL outlawing the chop block soon.
The most interesting thing about the tape is the timing. Is it a coincidence that the tape came out the same day as Payton's appeal? I don't think so. Goodell is very smart and he doesn't want this appeal to be successful. So, what better way to do that than to encourage the release of this tape?

Saints deny. Stay tuned.The U.S. Attorney's Office in the Eastern District of Louisiana was told Friday that New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis had an electronic device in his Superdome suite that had been secretly re-wired to enable him to eavesdrop on visiting coaching staffs for nearly three NFL seasons, "Outside the Lines" has learned.

A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.
