    Default Saints violated NFL's "Bounty Rule"

    NEW YORK (AP) -- New Orleans Saints players and at least one assistant coach maintained a bounty program the last three seasons for inflicting game-ending injuries on opposing players, including Brett Favre and Kurt Warner - a pool that reached as much as $50,000 and paid specific amounts for "cart-offs" and "knockouts," the NFL said Friday.

    The report said the pool amounts reached their height in 2009, the year the Saints won the Super Bowl.

    Apparently this went on in subsequent years (including last year). It's crazy that they got away with this for so long.
    Also - I'm guessing Peyton Manning and/or Tom Brady's bounty must've been off the charts.
