With all the bounty money going around, I wonder how much of that money was made available as "TIPS" to the officials for NON CALLS?
The NFL was aware of this during that time and as reports are coming out they warned the saints about such things.
My question is : "Why didn't they warn the officials to look for such things"? Doesn't make sense honestly. They allowed this to go on knowingly. They should'nt have.
As a Falcon fan I get ticked thinking back on some critical calls made throughout the years against the Falcons.
There were some FOR SURE CALLS every game against the Falcons that you could bank on getting called against the Falcons even WHEN THEY DID NOT MAKE THOSE PENALTIES. For one : "Block in the back", that was called forever against the Falcons special teams, which always resulted in giving the other team great field position starting out.
Now, back to the Aint's vs Vikings game, I would have preferred as a fan watching a legitimate game being won or lost.
I question who got paid on the officiating end of all of this. If the NFL knew this was going on and warned the saint's, where were the officials? I don't get it?
