    In Response to U.S. Senate Wants In On Bounty-gate : why don't you join the occupy movement and try and make a real change rather than regurgitating fox news talking points from your computer chair?  the reason why congress/the senate/obama love these types of things is because they know we are so dumbed down that we will put all of our attention on something as trivial as nfl bounties, rather than taking notice to govt corruption, economic inequality, failing domestic and foreign policies (war on drugs, illegal war with iraq/afghanistan..ect.) iraq isn't anywhere near close to having nuclear weapons, their nuclear facilities were funded by the US and were made to for things like fighting cancer through chemotherapy. you're eating up propaganda that will allow the US to start yet another illegal war, gas prices are high now, do you understand that they will rise even more if there is a war with iran? how about the fact that congress is about to allow student loan interest rates to double from 3.4% to 6.8% come july? you don't hear about that on fox news do you? obama is doing his job as the ceo of the US and pleasing this countries share holders, it's the same job title as any previous and future president... do you really think that voting in another rich elitist president backed by corporate donations is going to change anything?

    First, the current administration has done a lot more for troops than the last one, but there is still much more that needs to be done.  But secondly, I can't take anyone seriously who thinks that the healthcare bill involves telling someone whether to live or die.  Better yet, it's hard to take anyone seriously that thinks its worth being outraged over.  I mostly just skim these boards, but a lot of people are losing my respect by the post.  This isn't even a partisan issue.  This is a rationality issue.  My conservative/libertarian friends from other countries think that this entire argument is nuts and they have no dog in US politics.

    Vertigho, wouldn't it be easier to just keep yourself out of the political threads that happen to pop up from time to time, rather than trying to get the thread deleted altogether? just sayin

    In Response to Re: U.S. Senate Wants In On Bounty-gate:
    Just a hint to everyone here -- keep politics out of sports. Texas, that goes for you too. Isn't it somewhat hypocritical to complain about politics pushing their way into sports, on a sports forum? Did you not just do the same thing? I hope this thread gets shut down. Reading some of these comments has unfortunately changed my opinion of certain posters here, and I hope that doesn't further occur. I'd recommend that the mods delete this thread.

    While I agree that offering money to injure a player is sick and does border on criminal behavior, I don't think we need Senate hearings. This Country has enough problems and a debt that is out of control so to spend tax payers dollars on this is just ridiculous and so unnecessary. The Commish handled it, so let it go!

    Uh, you have a minor mistake here. Someone (those of us who pay taxes) is paying for this healthcare, so it is not 'free'. It is only free to people who pay no taxes.

         Why don't you read what's in the health care bill (unlike our esteemed representatives who voted for it without reading it)...and maybe then you could "take me seriously".

         Amen, brother. But, of course, none of those tax increases to pay for this monstrousity of a bill come into effect until after the 2012 elections.

         Let them be ticked off. In this case, Goodell was right.

         But, he and the NFL owners are being hypocritical. They say that they are all for player safety. Yet, they are insisting on the imposition of an 18 game schedule, which would certainly lead to more injuries, and shortened careers.

    "Offering money to injure persons is a crime"
    Then what would you call paying contracts to guys like Rodney Harrison, Vince Wilfork, Laron Landry, Ronnie Lott, Steve Atwater....etc.  Defensive studs play to hurt the other players...PERIOD...they dont cheap shot (usually)...but lets not kid ourselves into thinking that in the huddle, they arent saying they are going to "knock that punk ___ out of the game".  Football is a game of gladiators, where people get hurt, and good defenders do everything they can to intimidate others, including a brutal hit over the middle to set the tone.

    Why do many people believe that the NFL should be exempt from the federal OSHA worker safety provisions?  Do you believe that your company should be allowed to have programs in place to break the knee caps of your competitors?  If so, you must be a Tonya Harding fan.

    Jonbam:
    Would you prefer your NFL experience to be two hand touch? Or maybe flag football is your speed?  OSHA is designed for safe working environments....certain working conditions are more dangerous than others. So police should stop policing in bad neighborhoods for fear someone might get shot?
    Welders should use hot glue guns from Michaels because welding is by definition a dangerous occupation?  Should our sky scrapers be limited to 3 stories, for fear that the welder or carpenter might fall off and get a boo boo? Your rationale doesnt make sense here.
    When will people get it....there wasnt a bounty to cheap shot...there was a bounty to knock players out...you can do that without diving at their kneecaps, or have you never played a contact sport before?

    Isn't it extremelly apparent to all that, if they want something, nay ANYTHING FUBAR'd or SNAFU'd, have the "government" involved?

    Here we go again.... snake oil salesmen trying to convince us that this is THE most important issue that needs immediate work rsolving.

    Just have them pull an Obama.... blame any of the following: BUsh, the Chinese, ATM's, VP Joe, or a broken teleprompter!

    It's Dirty Dick's way of grandstanding on an obviously key issue that dramatically affects US policy, and our national ability to cram down more rules and regs on an industry, because he's now "outraged". I'll bet he doesn't even know which end of the football needs to be pointed forwrad when thrown!

    God, Himself, created all animals. A US Congressional committee came up with the camel and aardvark, as improvements.

    I think they feel the need to get involved when there is a "Pay to Injure" program being promoted on a national level.  Simply because it is on a national levels, they try to push their way into the mess.

    Personally, I think he's using this as the newest diversion that will keep the majority in the Senate (Dems, BTW), from coming up with a budget. You know, one that hasn't been drawn up or passed in over 1000 days. 

    BountyGate is an obviously much more impprtant issue of national importance. 
    Just ask Dirty Dick.

    If you are going to decide cases based on your religious beliefs you shouldn't be allowed to be a judge. If you can keep the two separate then it shouldn't be a problem.

    The issue is that so far the religious fanatics have kept their true intention secret until they are appointed or elected

    Iran's nuclear program started with the support, encouragement and participation of the United States, France, Germany and the UK because it made economic sense, and it still does. At a time when Iran's nuclear program is portrayed as an imminent threat, its interesting to see that the program actually started long ago, with the support and participation of the same countries that today insist Iran abandon its nuclear program.
    http://www.iranaffairs.com/iran_affairs/2006/05/blasts_from_the.html

    The United States, European allies and even Israel generally agree on three things about Iran's nuclear program: Tehran does not have a bomb, has not decided to build one, and is probably years away from having a deliverable nuclear warhead.
    http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/03/23/us-iran-usa-nuclear-idUSBRE82M0G020120323

    The fact that the US is about to get into ANOTHER ILLEGAL invasion, this time on Iran through a false pretext; and the fact that the US Govt. is gaining civilian support through the use of propaganda proves that indeed, terrorism is on the rise.
