John Sullivan thinks Vilma should be banned, too

NFC Championship: Minnesota Vikings v New Orleans Saints Getty Images

On Thursday, the sometimes quirky (but always entertaining) Chris Kluwe said that Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma should be banned for life as punishment for offering $10,000 to whoever knocked Brett Favre out of the 2009 NFC title game.  Many shrugged and/or laughed at Kluwe’s take because he’s a punter.

It’s time to stop shrugging and/or laughing.  Vikings center John Sullivan agrees with Kluwe.

On Friday, Sullivan sounded off on the subject with Paul Charchian of KFAN.

“If you want to offer money to knock someone out of a game on a clean hit, fine,” Sullivan said.  (Actually, it’s not fine.  But he’s going somewhere with this.)  “The guys that went after it in the wrong way, that’s the exact opposite of sportsmanship.  It’s just disgusting.  To think that you’re going to take money to hit someone illegally and put them out of the game, I can’t even fathom that somebody would do that.

“So I’ve got to be honest, I support Kluwe in saying that I think Vilma should be banned.  And I really think that, if you go back and look at that game, anybody that took a shot on Brett illegally and you can see with the intention of trying to injure him — and the big two that come to mind [Darren] Sharper and Bobby McCray — they’ve got to do something to those guys, too, whether it’s no Hall of Fame, whether it’s you’re not allowed to be associated with the NFL anymore.

“I have a hard time talking about it, because it disgusts me that you would go out there and try to take away someone’s livelihood.  It’s just — it’s gross.”

Sullivan also touched on the reality that, no matter what happens now, the fact that the Saints parlayed the bounty system into a championship served its ultimate goal of winning the ultimate prize.  “Now you’ve got a Super Bowl ring . . . because you took out the other team’s quarterback in a way that’s just despicable,” Sullivan said.

Sullivan he can’t go back and watch the game, but that he recalls Brett being hit in the mouth after handing the ball off.  “A lot of the hits on Brett were illegal,” Sullivan said.  “So what are you supposed to do to prevent those?  That’s not our job, that’s the officiating crew’s job.”

Now that some Vikings are talking about what happened back in January 2010, don’t be surprised if more voices join in.

    Yeah, let’s just let the entire Viking’s roster decide.

  2. cakemixa says: Mar 23, 2012 1:30 PM

    I guess the referees were in on this too, because they obviously didn’t flag all of the illegal hits?

    It’s hard to argue against them.

    I guess you approve of the Saints criminal behavior. In any other walk of life these nitwits would have been arrested.

  7. toad8572 says: Mar 23, 2012 1:34 PM

    I fully understand and support the gamesmanship that goes into the bounty system; it’s been around forever in some form from PW to Pros.

    HOWEVER, I also fully understand and support the strongest form of punishment that can be meted out to those who would willfully step beyond the bounds of sportsmanship and take illegal or cheap shots at their fellow players.

  8. norseyapper says: Mar 23, 2012 1:35 PM

    I’m glad he’s speaking up. His last thoughts on the officials probably won’t win him any friends with the zebras or with the league office, but as Bud Grant said, the officiating was bad to the point of being obviously dishonest.
    If Goodel really wants to make a statement about safety and fair play those officials should be banned for life.
    As for the likes of Vilma and Sharper, nothing that could be done will be sufficient as payment for their behavior and subsequent lies.

  9. abr173rd says: Mar 23, 2012 1:35 PM

    It’s funny because the term “Illegal” was never used anywhere in the investigation as far as hit’s, cart-offs, . Vilma never said I will give someone money for hitting illegally knocking Brett Farve out of the game. We don’t even know if he 100% said anything he’s being quoted as saying….

  10. antalicus says: Mar 23, 2012 1:35 PM

    that Saints Vikings game was just ridiculous and I still can’t believe it didn’t get any more looks than it did. Ya Favre did have some bad turnovers but im sure the fact that he was rattled so much and damaged after plays had a role.

    I wish they would have let that game re-air.

  11. fsckedagain says: Mar 23, 2012 1:36 PM

    I don’t care if the Vikings would have won or not, the Saint’s are a bunch of useless pu$$ies in my mind forever now.

    Can’t play fair and win, so let’s cheat. Too bad that lil wind storm didn’t blow your ugly dome down…

  12. ragingyinzer says: Mar 23, 2012 1:36 PM

    Does “no Hall of Fame” mean that Sharper & McCray wouldn’t be allowed to buy tickets to get into Canton? Cause that’s the only way either one of them is getting in.

  13. zonon85 says: Mar 23, 2012 1:36 PM

    I may have missed something here but if the Saints are not going to be paying several of their employees contracts, where does all that money go?

  14. brewdogg says: Mar 23, 2012 1:36 PM

    I’m not going to be one to say what the official league punishment should be…..all i’m going to say is that I would hate to be Drew Brees next season.

    The players will take this into their own hands if the league doesn’t. Suspending a few players may make future players think twice before trying this again, and if that makes everyone put it behind them, then that should be the way to go.

    I think reading the article its about taking out players for cash….Vikes lost the game schit sux but when its a union member trying to end another union members career…Yeah thats trouble, not just the Vikings, Kurt Warner, several others even Arron Rodgers whom I don’t care for but would like to have the the Vikings beat him and the Packers the right way….

    TAINTS Enough said….Tainted Trophy

  19. thermalito says: Mar 23, 2012 1:58 PM

    Saints are tainted champions with a big fat asterisk next to their NFC Championship game “victory.” This kind of cheating can’t be tolerated.

  20. shatterpt says: Mar 23, 2012 1:58 PM

    What amazes me is the non-calls on the late hits, the illegal hits, and all the turnovers – and the Saints still needed ref help in OVERTIME with the PI call on Leber, the “complete” pass to Meachem that was really incomplete AND the “1st down” from Pierre Thomas when he tried jumping over everyone and Chad Greenway knocks the ball loose and clearly behind the line of scrimmage.

    It’s an endless, trite argument to talk about if the outcome would have been different. At the end of the day the Saints went to the Super Bowl. It’s come to light that they also legitimately cheated. As such, they should be penalized for it.

    Ban Jonathan Vilma and Gregg Williams for life from the NFL.

  21. demo1984 says: Mar 23, 2012 1:58 PM

    As a Vikings fan I will honestly say if they would not have turned the ball over 5 times they would have easily won that game. That being said it is also true that if the officiating didnt suck as bad as it did they also would not have lost that game. On the play that Favre was high lowed and knkock out for a few plays, he threw an int and the vikings were on the Saints 35 yard line. If the official that was standing right behind the play would have thrown a flag ( and the play was not even disputable that it was a penalty because you are not allowed to hit a QB below the knees) the vikings then would have had 1st and 10 from the 20 an almost for sure FG if not TD. In overtime the phantom PI call on Ben Leber even if there was a very little incidental contact the ball was nowwhere close to catchable. The the catch that set up the winning FG. It was bad enough that they called it a catch on the field but after reviewing it they confirmed it. Go to you tube and look at the play. it is absolutely without dout not a catch because the ball is on the ground.

    I am not saying at all the officials were in on anything, but anyone other than a Saint fan ( and some of them should also be able to see) that this was one of the poorest one sided officiated NFC championship games I have ever watched.

  22. porkchopexpress1969 says: Mar 23, 2012 1:58 PM

    @winningisabrees

    Typical moron coming from a Saints fan. No ONE said that the Vikings would of won the game. Get over it, your team is a bunch cheap shot artists that got paid for that..

  23. mark921129 says: Mar 23, 2012 2:00 PM

    Im not sure which is more disgusting…the whole bounty program, or the Saints fans defending this BS. Im not a Vikings fan at all, but who better to talk about this?

    What if the bounty were on Brees? Im sure you all would be piling on big time…but then again no way Brees could take the beat down like Farve did.

    I think Vilma, Sharper, and several others should be banned for life. And frankly if the Saints had any character at all, Payton would be fired.

    Saints fans, get the bags out, cause you’re once again the “Aints”

  24. jackers252 says: Mar 23, 2012 2:01 PM

    More voices like Kyle Williams who was targeted in the NFCC game by the Giants because he has a history of concussions a few weeks ago?

    More voices like Heinz Ward and Mendenhall because Suggs admitted to having a bounty on him in 2010?

    More voices from players speaking out against Tennessee’s bounty program when Jim Schwartz was the coach?

    More voices from when GB had a bounty program in 2007 that the league knew about?

    The hypocrisy runs deep here and in the NFL. Punish the Saints because the coaches organized and covered it up, but hammer those teams as well. Or if the league is going to turn its back on those indiscretions, then reduce the death penalty on the Saints.

  25. artielange says: Mar 23, 2012 2:02 PM

    It’s nice to see the Vikings players are just as big sloppy, wet vaginas as their fanbase is.

    The Vikings D was trying like hell to knock Drew Brees out of the game, too. They just weren’t good enough to get it done.

    I also love how the Vilma thing has gone from offering $10,000 to knock Favre out of the game, to all of a sudden becoming knocking him out with an “illegal” hit. By next week, some other irrelevant Viking turd will come out and condemn Vilma for offering $10,000 to stab Favre in the knees with an icepick.

  26. iluvbears says: Mar 23, 2012 2:02 PM

    Boy, for having a cheating team, you Saints fans sure are sanctimonious in your judgement of how fans of these other teams who were cheated against feel. You need to admit that what your team was caught doing was wrong and start to show a little remorse because your going to need some support from the rest of us when your team is sucking next year after the player suspensions are doled out.

  27. neovenator250 says: Mar 23, 2012 2:04 PM

    Screw the Vikings. Their problem needs to be with the officiating crews. If there was an illegal hit, then it was flagged. For all their whining, its not as though the Saints were constantly knocking people out of the games or constantly getting flagged. As a defense, they were one of the least flagged teams over the last 3 years! I’m not saying that the bounty was a good thing, but they weren’t exactly going around executing people like everyone suddenly wants to pretend. If the Vikings were supposed to win that game, then they wouldn’t have turned the ball over 5 times. You lost. Move on.

  28. neovenator250 says: Mar 23, 2012 2:05 PM

    *meant to say that “If there was an illegal hit, then it needed to be flagged”

  29. neovenator250 says: Mar 23, 2012 2:06 PM

    And for the love of Christ, having a bounty is not cheating in any way. Its illegal, but it is not cheating.

    ***
    You’re damn right I’m still sour. Reverse the tables and you’d be bitching from the rooftops, Saints fan. Based on the way you crowed incessantly about winning it all, you’d certainly be screaming the live long day if Brees was assaulted illegally that way.

    I’m the first to point out that Chilly literally screwed himself with the 12 Men penalty; and that 5 fumbles clearly hurts and of course the INT at the end was the dagger. But remove the illegal, injury-intended late hits, insanely-bad-borderline-rigged “officiating” and the photographed/taped/broadcast demonstrations of celebration when Favre went down time after time, in obvious pain. All of that contributed to the Saints’ victory and eventual title.

    You cannot argue those facts, Saints fan. You cannot be supported in claiming that your team played fairly. Minny lost, and their own faults are evident. But to say that New Orleans won justly is simply impossible. The whole world knows and has seen the evidence. The NFL commissioner has begun strong punishment. Scream all you want, point to your ‘victory’ and claim superiority.

    I do not say Minny would have automatically won the SB. That’s not the point, sir. The point is that one of the biggest games in NFL history was decided illegally, and your victories are soiled.

    If the Saints organization is severely crippled as a result and that’s all I get in compensation, I reserve the right to be happy about it.

Censor me but let that go right on through. Would you publish me saying something about them deserving their horrible incident where their bridge collapsed? I think not. But because it is presently, pile on New Orleans month, anything flies in your eyes. Classy. Here’s a suggestion: stay out of nola next year for the superbowl.

  34. oliverioxerxes says: Mar 23, 2012 2:16 PM

    You don’t turn the ball over five times in the playoffs and win. Ask the Saints. Chilly would have choked in the Super Bowl anyway. Say what you want about Payton, but the he’s the reason they beat the Colts. It’s pathetic that Vikings fans think they had a ring stolen from them. Then again, I’d be bitter about it too if my team had no chance of making the playoffs for the next decade.

  35. obithejedi says: Mar 23, 2012 2:16 PM

    Maybe if Sullivan and his fellow lineman played better Vilma and the other defenders wouldn’t have made it to Favre as much. I guess he knows illegal hits better than the referees on the field that night.

    why in the hell do Saints fans need to show remorse? Did I dole out money for this? Was this wrong and deserving of punishment? of course. Did I have one thing to do with it? not in the least. if we go 0-16, do we need your support? hell no. and certainly not from the scumbag fans of the bears. we remember the signs we saw in soldier field at the NFC championship game about Katrina. be careful running around throwing stones in glass houses. your fanbase is known for being as classless as can be.

    It is hard to know what would have happened if the Saints hadn’t cheated in that game. But you can’t deny that those cheap shots on Favre didn’t matter just because he kept playing. They affected his play, just as they would for any other QB. I mean, the whole purpose of the bouny program was to acquire a competitive advantage through cheating.

    Since the Vikings basically came within yards of winning in regulation I can say with pretty good confidence that if the Saints hadn’t hobbled Favre with illegal hits that Favre would have likely completed a few extra passes.

  43. baxman89 says: Mar 23, 2012 2:23 PM

  61. nomesayin says: Mar 23, 2012 2:46 PM

    FINALLY someone has mentioned the officiating. They hand out flags like Halloween candy against some teams, then look the other way on infractions which are so egregious that even the Saints’ HC got suspended for a yr merely for being complicit. Payton gets suspended, but he wasn’t the one trying to injure opposing players. These bonehead officials weren’t even suspicious of what was happening under their own noses!

    If the officials were doing their job(s), this could have been avoided, or at least been brought to light before it went this far.

    The officiating crews are like the clown car of the NFL. If there is any one thing that diminishes the integrity of the game, it’s the officiating. Everyone talks about the bountygate, spygate, Steeler/Seahawk Super Bowl gate… wtf-ever else. Do something about the officiating.
    You have these old men in their 50s or 60s who have no business being on the field calling the games. You hold the players, coaches, GMs, & even owners accountable. What about the NFL clown car? The officials should be changed every few seasons.

    The NFL just ignores the dubious ways that officiating affects the outcome of many games. “Coincidentally”, millions of dollars are wagered every week on the same games.

    Duh.

    Just because the NFL has plausible deniability over the huge sums of money being bet each week, (because the NFL does not condone sports betting) the league therefore has the same deniability for the same reason when failing to address the way that officiating can affect the way those millions are paid out. I do not gamble on the games, & it’s not really the point I’m trying to make. I’m merely stating that, if officiating is bad enough to induce suspicion, AND money is involved on the outcome of any given game, then some of the AWFUL officiating that everyone sees every week should be looked at more closely.

    Instead, the NFL looks the other way on the refs…implying that the league agreed with the officials on the field who saw no reason to penalize the Saints for questionable conduct during games which they would later suspend the HC, DC, GM, & even Owner over.

    The League implies that the officials could not have reasonably penalized the Saints during the games in question over 3 years, yet, they suspend the guilty parties for infractions which were not even considered infractions by the refs on the field at the time.The officiating crews had no suspicions about what was going on in the Saints’ bounty games, then called an unusual amount of idiotic penalties against the Minnesota Vikings, thereby “influencing” the final score in a game in which millions of dollars were wagered.

    Who cares about gamblers? I’d be happy if they could just get it right for the integrity of the game.

    @demo1984 …To me the NFL is looking for scapegoats, ok they had bounties out, but where are the flags?, and how can the integrity of the game be tarnished by bounties when all the refs have to do is throw the flag. I’m not a Vikings fan, but if y go back and watch that NFC title game the officiating was terrible and they overlook that like it has no bearing on the outcome of the game, people are straight overreacting to this whole bounty gate fiasco, the Redskins didn’t sniff the superbowl and the Saints won one but their defense has clearly taken a down slide since then, if you want to punish because they were giving players money off the books that’s fine no problem with that , but to suspend these guys over the the integrity of the game then the refs you pay week in and week out should be fined also, because a simple throwing of the flag could have stopped all of this non-sense, and that raises another question if it wasn’t illegal on the field then how its illegal now and might I add the NFL fined no one after that high low hit on Favre.

    Did anyone get fined or flagged for an illegal hit in that game? If so, they should be the only players investigated. If no flags were thrown then what does it matter? If I’m a pro player, I am looking to make the biggest hit I can regardless of extra money. My job is to go out and hit people. There was no “cheating”. Breaking the rules is not the same as cheating. I dont understand how everyone jumps on these guys for doing their jobs. That would be like getting in trouble for tipping a waiter more for bringing you your food before another tables.

    And if you put an mark on their super bowl win, you put one on the Pats for theres and then vacate any wins by any teams Gregg Williams coordinated or coached. Make it like college football.

    All the complaining about hits on Favre. You dont think he would have been hit as much if there hadnt been extra money on the line? You are fools to believe that.

  66. whoknowsnothing says: Mar 23, 2012 2:54 PM

    He has some good ideas as what punishments some players should get.

    Just like Pete Rose, he tainted the game of baseball, got banned, and now he will never be inducted to the baseball Hall of Fame.

    Similar situation with the Saints, people in the organization tainted the game of football, now they should face similar consequences including the players.

  67. bigmike7914 says: Mar 23, 2012 2:54 PM

  68. hdahs143 says: Mar 23, 2012 2:55 PM

    I had not dogs in that fight, but Goodell should give a public accounting of the officiating in that game, because the pummeling that was allowed to take place on Favre, was so far beyond flagrant, that is laughable.

    The irony is that the league protects its officials behind a veil of secrecy, with the same zeal in which they hammer players and officials.

    Something is not quite right with that.

  69. lancegams says: Mar 23, 2012 2:56 PM

    The way about trying to push your team to play harder is the issue. “Bounty” or “Taking someone out of the game” are wrong and need to be punished heavily.

    Now if there was an incentive plan to get a “Sack” or “Force a fumble” that would be no different than what most companies do for their employees. That I could see as being acceptable. If you drive them to do their job better that still is in line with the rules then there should be no issue.

    But to go out and possibly end someones career or effect them in a way that could physically harm their way of living is inexcusable.

    Drive your team how you want, but be a sportsman over all. Who knows, next year you might play with that guy who was the target, now you’re going to be pissed when they’re coming after him like that.

    As a Viking fan, this covers the known. Yes, the Saints did beat us due to turnovers and coach Clueless. My complaint on this, isn’t the Saints. They won the game, it’s in the books, nothing can be done about it, history. Yes, the non-calls by that officiating group(if you want to call it that) was downright atrocious. My complaint is against Mr. Sullivan and the rest of the Viking group that was on that field that day that was paid to protect Favre. Why did you being witness to these flagrant cheap shots, not give out on the field justice to those who committed these acts? You saw first hand how the game was being called. Why did you not respond immediately in kind to those who delivered the blows that you now say were done and makes you sick to your stomach? The allowance of these cheap shots during the game without retribution is what sickened me.

    I’m not a Vikes fan nor do I think much of Lord Farve in general, but I did see photos of the brutally swollen and twisted ankle Farve had after that game was over.

    Funny thing that when you can’t put your weight on a leg you underthrow or throw with a lot of inaccuracy. How many of those INTs came because of illegal hits that caused significant injury to Farve ? Probably at least 1 or 2 of them. That’s a game changer right there.

    Your team cheated, and there is absolutely no excuse for it that is valid.

    Farve and every other player who was injured by the Saints during that period should be sueing the Saints team, the individuals who hit them, and pursuing criminal charges for conspiracy and assault against them.

    Dont you just love revisionist history? Vikings players will have you believe that Saints players were going for Favre’s knees, hitting him late and hitting him after the whistle. The problem is, that didn’t happen.

    If the hits on Favre were so heinous why didn’t anybody associated with the Vikings organization complain about it until news of the bounties came out? Why werent Vikings players complaining then? They didnt complain, because there was nothing to complain about. Not only is it a punk move, its disingenous for players like Sullivan to act like something was taken away from them. Favre got punished because of a porous line, not because of illegal hits. Its time for the Vikings and their fans to move on. No amount of crying is going to get you a Super Bowl trophy.

  84. rendumas says: Mar 23, 2012 3:38 PM

    what the saints did was wrong for offering money to knock people out of the game. but everyone crying about how it afected their team should wake up and realize the refs were in the game also. the hits were reviewd for each game and some fines were issued. with those hits scrutiny should be used and possible bans but then james harrison and suh should be banned also. and as for taking their superbowl trophy get real mineesota woulda got dusted by the colts and there were no hits o manning in the superbowl.

    ***
    Because the rules make those kind of hits ILLEGAL. That’s why. Football isn’t the Mafia. Everyone knows that football is a hard, violent sport, especially on the lines. Big fat hairy duh (literally). The whistle stops play, and rules protect defenseless players away from the action. Ref are supposed to protect QBs particularly. Giving the ball to a RB takes the QB out of the play. THE GUY WITH THE BALL IS THE TARGET. Otherwise, WR, TE, RBs out of the backfield would all be instantly tackled and their knees and ankles bashed every game, every play. No one would worry about scoring, just hurting the opponent as often as possible. It would be nonstop MMA every play. Soon players would be embedding weapons into their pads.

    By minimizing the stains that the bounty situation brought to the game, you cheapen the success of those that play by the rules and win by the rules. The New Orleans Saints did NOT win by the rules. End of argument.

    Yes – as stated — “Sullivan he can’t go back and watch the game, but that he recalls Brett being hit in the mouth after handing the ball off. “A lot of the hits on Brett were illegal,” Sullivan said. “So what are you supposed to do to prevent those? That’s not our job, that’s the officiating crew’s job.”
    – – – – – – – – – –

    Other news from today: packers were investigated for a bounty in 2007. Gregg Williams had a bounty on brad Johnson when he coached the redskins. I’m not saying what the saints did was right, but there are other teams doing it too and they deserve punishment as well.
    Second: all you people who call the saints criminals and then advocate for the other teams getting revenge this season. I understand what the saints did was wrong, but if any player tries to take out saints players next season as a revenge, then they are just as much of a criminal as the saints are.
    Lastly: for you idiots commenting about Katrina destroying the city and everything, go f**k yourself because you didn’t live here and lose loved ones. I hope you people don’t have to experience having your parents or children or friends become homeless or worse, dying.

  89. t2live22 says: Mar 23, 2012 3:51 PM

    First off, I acknowledge I’m a Vikings fan. Chris Kluwe is an idiot, shut up and punt the little ball. John Sullivan and every other Viking player just needs to move on, its over, you blew it now we as fans have to deal with it.

    The blame falls on the refs. How can you not call penalties that WOULD have changed the outcome of this game, and then fine the players $20,ooo afterwards? Everyone who has doubts, just watch the film.

    Saints fans on here need to be a bit more humble. They were LOSERS for so many years and by the grace and stupidity of the Vikings won the SB. Not bitter, just fact.

    Last point, Saints fans want to go after Vikings fans on this topic, but funny how almost everyone not a Saints fan agrees with the verdict. I think the trophy should be taken away. World versus Saints

    Uh, Sullivan, yeah it is your job to prevent those hits by actually BLOCKING for your QB because you’re an Offensive LINEMAN.

    That said, I agree with him about the outrage over bountygate. Why should the punter’s comments be dismissed just because he’s a punter? He’s on the field and in the lockerroom with these guys. Why should a center’s comments lend more credence (other than the fact that he blocked like crap for Favre)?

    Does it guarantee that Marshawn Lynch is immune to tackles or that the 49ers have a beast of a defense or a machine at tight end?

    The players will take this into their own hands if the league doesn’t. Suspending a few players may make future players think twice before trying this again, and if that makes everyone put it behind them, then that should be the way to go.
    ________
    I don’t think Brees has to worry about a thing. The man has the quickest release in the league defenders barely get to breathe on him before the ball is gone, and if you don’t think that the officials are going to be looking for retaliation payback then you’re a fool, and if you think that it’s smart for any players to put a “bounty” on Brees after all this then you’re just plain stupid.

  109. RedRuffAndSore says: Mar 23, 2012 6:50 PM

    The refs in the 2009 NFC CG (Pete Morelli and his crew) did one of the worst officiating jobs I’ve ever seen. It wasn’t just that they turned a blind eye while the Saints cheap-shotted Favre with obvious intent to injure, it was all the other botched calls or non-calls, such as the phantom pass-interference call on Leber, the non-catch by Meachem, and the 4th down play in overtime where Chad Greenway hit Pierre Thomas in the air causing a fumble that the Saints recovered behind the line of scrimmage. Sure, the Vikings turned the ball over 5 times, but, they had twice as many yards as the Saints and would have won the game if the refs had only been semi-incompetent or semi-biased. After that hatchet job, Morelli et al. should have been fired on the spot!

    As for those who make excuses for the refs, I say why should we — all NFL fans, who spend our money, time and energy following our favorite teams passionately — have to put up with bad officiating? Most fans can accept losing a game when the other team plays better. But, nothing irks and frustrates a fan more than having his/her favorite team lose because of bad officiating.

    Let’s demand that the NFL improves the officiating by hiring full-time refs, having refs in the booth watching replays to assist the refs on the field, investigating possible bias and corruption involving the refs, conducting detailed performance analysis of the refs’ on-field work and firing any ref who demonstrates incompetence or bias.

    I’m a die hard Vikings fan and a season ticket holder I can’t disagree with Sullivan or Kluwe. Those guys deserve to be punished severely. HOWEVER… we turned the ball over 5 times! The bounty on Favre had nothing to do with AP fumbling on the goal line before half. It had nothing to do with the 12 men in the huddle at the end of the game which led to the Favre pick. The Saints were dirty and they got away with it but the Vikings killed themselves. That’s the bottom line. As much as it hurts to admit it that’s the truth and any Viking fan that doesn’t admit that the bounty had nothing to do with those turnovers is obviously dillusional.

    ==================
    The Vikings did in fact complain immediately after the 2009 NFCCG to the League, not only about calls they thought the officials missed, but also on the bounty on Favre. In fact, one of the Saints’ players was indeed fined $20,000 for an illegal hit on Favre after the fact, even though there was no flag thrown during the game — a fact for which Periera apologized. The only reason there was no action taken right away on the bounty was because, when confronted by the NFL, the Saints organization lied through its teeth…and lied…and lied some more. Only after someone came forward recently with evidence did the NFL reopen its investigation into the bounty system, and we all know what happened with that.

    As a Vikings fan, I don’t want your SB trophy. Enjoy it. However, I would say that after alll these years, you should not be surprised that Vikings fans are thoroughly enjoying your predicament, brought on only by your organization’s arrogance and stupidity…and a little tip from the Vikings that there was a bounty in place on Favre during that 2009 NFCCG.

    I’ve listened to all the overheated rhetoric on this topic – and I’m struck by the inherent ignorance that informs so much of it: Lawrence O’Donnell, for instance, has called for the Saints to be disqualified from their Super Bowl title – and the Lombardi Trophy awarded to the Vikings! Yet rather obviously, if the Saints were to be disqualified (which I most emphatically do NOT support doing, by the way), the championship would have to go to the Colts since the Colts were the runners-up (having lost to New Orleans in the Super Bowl), not the Vikings.

    Another aspect of this cannot go unaddressed: The anti-bounty crusade is still another move by the league that is designed to favor offense over defense; have we yet heard of even ONE incident in which an offensive player was offered a bounty to take out a defensive player – say, via a chop block or leg whip?

    How far will the NFL go to tilt the playing field in favor of the offense? Will the typical over-under line on an NFL game soon be 80?

    Can’t believe how some people are saying that “the Saints didn’t cheat,they just did something illegal”….
    Huh??? The bounty scheme was not only illegal,it’s immoral and tantamount to cheating!!! Best form of punishment is to make ALL those found guilty to hand back their SB ring…take away the ring and I guaranty nobody ever does this again.

    vikesfan4life: Sorry, Bud. I’m delusional. A guy in a long black coat and really dark glasses gave me this pill, and ever since I took it, I see streams of green letters and numbers everywhere I look. He looked like Shane Falco; you know, the poor QB that got hammered back in the Sugar Bowl. Weird. I was bummed when the Sentinels let him go.

    The green streams make is really easy to see where the Saints got away with football ‘murder’ that night.

    What the hell kind of fan are you? Are you so imbued with Viking misery and half a century of disappointment that you’re actually starting to believe that Minny ‘can’t win’? Wake UP Man!
