One thing is clear about New Orleans Saints Bountygate the NFL and Roger Goodell are fighting their case with the press. Monday the NFL gave more evidence out to reports. This time it was a video clip from the 2010 NFC championship game, where a voice made a money comment about injuring then-Viking QB Brett Favre. The NFL is asserting that the voice was former Saints’ defensive end Anthony Hargrove. The clip was part of the appeal hearing by Hargrove. Today Hargrove is letting the media know that voice was not him. But it’s kind of suspicious that in that same game Hargrove was flagged and later fined $5,000 for a flagrant hit on Favre. No worries Favre returned to play in that game meaning if he was participating in the bounty program Hargrove didn’t get the big reward of a ‘cart-off.’ But he would have still been owed some money for the hit.
Joining Hargrove at the meeting was Will Smith, Scott Fujita and Jonathan Vilma. The NFL is standing by their suspension decisions. But don’t worry Vilma still has his defamation suit against Goodell to get even.
