Really? Is that what my tax dollars are for? Investigating sports while millions continue to languish in the unemployment lines while Banksters go unpunished. What a bunch of idiots we seem to have chosen to lead this country. Here is a News Flash for Congress: Major League Sports are NOT your forte. MLB hearings proved that.
On the other hand, this may prove to be a good thing as the fact that bonuses are paid for bad behavior not only in Boardrooms, but amongst nearly all of the NFL teams; not just the Saints. By the time Congress is done with its investigation and hearings we could see nearly all head coaches suspended for the
2013 2020 (they take forever to go nowhere) season along with their defensive coaches suspended indefinitely. Or maybe we will see the NFL Commisioner eating crow as the players and fans demand his hide for sweeping this league-wide practice under the rug for so many years.
Somewhere along the way of opening this can of worms, bonuses for doing a good job (hitting hard) became "bounties". Nothing like putting a negative conotation to engender outrage so let's try it here:
When will you investigate the paying of Bounties to the Banksters responsible for gutting the Economy of the United States and the World?
Nothing like a little sleight of hand to distract the news media and John Q. Public from discussing what a miserable failure you Congress people are when it comes to acting like leaders and upholding the Constitution you swore to protect is there? The Corruption and obvious lack of Morals and Ethics in your own Halls far outweigh anything going on in the lockerrooms, but investigating yourselves and your Corporate ties would implicate you as the Most Corrupt Government in the world. Yet you owe this to America and the World at large. Bring these Banksters to justice. Expose them for the criminals they are. Hold their shady practices up for the world to see. Expose the utter contempt they had for their clients and the People at large.
Oh wait, that's right, you won't because you don't want to bite the hand that feeds you...
Time to vote out EVERY incumbent. Maybe that will get the Commissioners message across to Congress: Bad behavior will NOT be tolerated!
