The only time I'd say I have a (big) problem with it is if a coach offers a bounty to do something illegal. If somebody is telling a player to "sweep the leg, Johnny!" that's taking it over the top.
OK. I think it's official. Williams took it over the top.
Yeah, he definitely did. Ask yourself whether you could ever, ever see Dick LeBeau saying those things.
What's fair punishment? Lifetime ban? A season, or more? What hurts the sport more, taking out players, or cheating in games (and winning your dynasty SBs by 3 fucking points each)? Spygate and Bountygate both had the potential to change the course of NFL history. Pretty sure Spygate actually did.
