Wouldn’t be surprised if #NFL threw the book at Gregg Williams in this bounty thing — and stripped him of one of his g’s. #Saints#Redskins

SEE RELATED:


Love to know which of the #Saints spilled the beans. We’re talking “Mutiny on the Bounty” here. #NFL #Redskins

Remember how they got Capone on income-tax evasion? Wonder if #Saints‘ Bounty Program also constitutes a salary cap violation. #NFL #Redskins

What #Saints did is reckless, it’s arrogant, it’s barbaric. Outside of a point-shaving scandal, how many things are worse? #NFL#Redskins

We’re not Pollyannas here. We all know this kind of stuff has gone on in the #NFL forever. Doesn’t make it right, though. #Saints#Redskins

What a PR disaster for the #NFL. And at time when TV ratings are through the roof. #Saints #Redskins

Can just imagine what Goodell will say at next league meeting. “This is the #NFL. We’re not a bunch of soccer hooligans.” #Saints#Redskins

Will never understand how #NFL players can lock arms in a labor dispute — and then conduct themselves the way the #Saints did. #Redskins

Takes some of steam out of players’ cry that “the #NFL isn’t doing enough to protect us” when this bounty crap is revealed. #Saints#Redskins

What Goodell should tell the players: “My name’s Wyatt Earp. It all ends NOW!” #NFL #Saints #Redskins

This is classic. Brett Favre, one of the #Saints‘ reported targets, joined Twitter today. https://twitter.com/#!/BrettFavre4 #NFL#Redskins

The #Caps come up with another of their patented Admiral Stockdale performances. “Who are we? Why are we here?” #Devils, 5-0. #NHL

Saturday

The #Saints put the franchise tag on Brees. It was either that or put a bounty on him. #NFL

If Peyton Manning signs an incentive-laden contract with somebody, it’ll be interesting to see which incentives … #NFL #Colts #Redskins

… will be considered earned (and thus count vs. cap). I mean, the guy just missed an entire season and is … #NFL #Colts #Redskins

… damaged goods. Who can say with any real certainty what he’s capable of? #NFL #Colts #Redskins

Sunday

Peyton Hillis pondered retiring to join CIA? http://es.pn/zepHkkDavey O’Brien DID retire to join FBI. http://t.co/fg3rWXrS #NFL#Browns

Davey, a 5-7 dynamo from TCU, is the guy the QB award is named after. Played two seasons with #NFL‘s #Eagles (1939-40). His last … 

… game was vs. #Redskins at Griffith Stadium. Set #NFL records that day with 60 pass attempts, 33 completions … http://bit.ly/xpEVla

A week later, in the #NFL title game on the same field, the #Redskinsgot nipped by the #Bears 73-0. http://bit.ly/zFweKN

Whatever penalty Gregg Williams gets, at least he won’t be able to appeal on the grounds his urine samples were mishandled. #NFL#Redskins

Rajon Rondo just had the 7th 15-15-15 game (points-rebounds-assists) since ‘85-86. Others to do it: Kidd (3), Magic (2), Bird. #NBA#Celtics

Kidd is the only one in the group to do it in the playoffs. Bird’s big game came vs. Bullets. http://bit.ly/wdrj65 #NBA #Wizards #Celtics

Here’s the whole list in case you’re curious. http://bit.ly/wlcEjo #NBA #Celtics #Wizards

Interesting story about Mike Ornstein, whose name has come up in the #Saints‘ Bounty Thing. http://lat.ms/xodVa7 #NFL #Redskins#Raiders

Who said, “We try to hurt everybody… . This is a man’s game”? My column on the #Saints‘ bounties. http://bit.ly/x5aPq6 #NFL#Redskins

Here, btw, is cover of the Time magazine in which Sam Huff uttered: “We try to hurt everybody.” http://ti.me/wOgFkT #NFL #Redskins#Saints

Huff was the 2nd #NFL player to grace the cover of Time. The 1st, 5 years earlier, was Lions QB Bobby Layne. http://ti.me/xE00vQ#Redskins

Monday

Fired #GW women’s hoops coach Mike Bozeman in the school paper: “We lost our games by an average of one point this year, … #Colonials

“… which is incredible to me.” It’s incredible to me, too. #GW lost 18 games by a total of 209 points. Average: 11.6. #Colonials

#GW did lose 1-pointer to Charlotte (61-60). That might be the game that sticks in Bozeman’s mind. Or maybe #Colonials need new scoreboard.

Here’s the link to the story in the #GW Hatchet. #Colonials

Before the media is done putting Gregg Williams under a microscope, we’ll probably know how much he tips his paper boy and … #NFL #Saints

… whether his cable package includes the Spice Channel. #NFL#Saints

So I’m reading about Nicky Backstrom going back to Sweden, and I’m thinking: What, he couldn’t find a decent sauna here? #Caps#NHL

Tuesday

Josey Wales: “You a bounty hunter?” Bounty hunter: “A man’s got to do something for a living these days.” … #NFL #Saints #Redskins

Josey Wales: “Dyin’ ain’t much of a living.” #NFL #Saints #Redskins

Another line from “Josey Wales.” Maybe the #Saints D said it as it broke huddle: “Get ready, little lady. Hell is coming to breakfast.” #NFL

“Crosby cleared to resume contact.” Wish I didn’t read that as: “Crosby cleared to sustain next concussion.” #NHL #Penguins

Randy Moss and Bourbon Street. That’s about as good a match as Albert Haynesworth and a buffet table. #Saints #Redskins #NFL#Pats

The #Caps are tied 2-2 with the #Hurricanes after two periods thanks to the Killer B’s, Brouwer and Beagle. #NHL

Justin Faulk with the game-winner for the #Canes. Well, at least it wasn’t Peter Falk. #Caps

You can’t waste a goal by Jay Beagle. You just can’t. It’s like wasting a homer by Nyjer Morgan. #Caps #Nats

Wednesday

Among guys w/ 10+ goals, #Caps‘ Perreault (2nd, 23.4), Johansson (26th, 16.2) + Brouwer (28th, 16.1) all in #NHL top 30 in shooting %. #Caps

Leonsis: “A #Lightning player has scored more goals this season than Ovechkin, Semin + Green combined.” Stamkos 48, #Caps Trio 46. Horrors.

If Peyton signed with #Dolphins, he wouldn’t have to play vs. Eli for next 3 years — unless it was in Super Bowl… . #NFL #Redskins

… Given Peyton’s age, 3 years could be the rest of his career. Nice fringe benefit to playing in Miami. #NFL #Dolphins #Redskins

What has Peyton got left to prove? I mean, he’s even proven you can become a sports icon in Indiana without throwing a folding chair. #NFL

Well, we’ve seen what Archie’s kids can do. It’ll be interesting to see what Peyton and Eli’s kids can do. #NFL #Colts #Giants

I’ve gotta tell ya, some of these tweets analyzing Peyton’s neck movements — or lack thereof — are a little creepy… . #NFL #Colts

Kinda reminds me of the close inspection that photos of Kim Jong-il used to get when people wondered if he was still alive. #NFL

They’ve finally released a picture of the guy who pointed a laser at the rival goalie in his daughter’s hockey game. http://bit.ly/xJ4X4g#NHL

Thursday

Peyton doesn’t need Shanahan the way Elway did. He’s already won his SB, is already an all-timer. Elway had a big hole in his resume. #NFL

Not to get all Jerry Maguire on you, but Shanahan completed Elway. Manning needs no such thing. Just wants best possible chance to win. #NFL

Brees has thrown for 404, 466 and 462 yards in his last three playoff games. How does that make him “very good” and not great, #Saints#NFL

Why would Peyton’s camp ever suggest he’d ruled out the #Redskins, even if he had? The mere illusion of Snyder drives up his price. #NFL

In the space of 20 months, LeBron James, Albert Pujols and Peyton Manning will have changed teams. America, land of the free! #NFL#NBA #MLB

The thing you have to ask yourself is: After LeBron, Albert and Peyton, is Ovie next? #Caps #NHL #NFL #NBA #MLB

Dunkin’ Donuts Sports Fact of the Night: Tokarski (Tampa Bay’s goalie) rhymes with Koharski. #Caps #Lightning #NHL #Schoenfeld

Idle thought: Maybe Ovie should hire Butch Harmon as his swing coach. #Caps #Lightning #NHL

Now that Gregg Williams is “cooperating” with the #NFL, I hope he doesn’t pull a Frankie Five Angels. #Saints #Rams #Redskins#TheGodfather

Georgia Tech’s 36-point effort in the #ACC tourney wouldn’t bother me so much if Pete Maravich hadn’t averaged 44.2 for his college career.

… And Pistol Pete didn’t have a single three-point basket, because the rule hadn’t been passed yet. #ACC

If there’s a heaven, Maravich is playing HORSE with Hank Gathers, waiting for Paul Westhead to show up. #ACC

Speaking of Pistol, I wore his number 23 as a high school and college basketball player. It wasn’t a coincidence.

Red Auerbach LOVED Maravich. Would have him demonstrate various dribbling maneuvers in his “Red on Roundball” series… . #NBA #Celtics

Pete might have been flashy — and a bit of a “chucker,” as we called them — but he was so fundamentally sound. #NBA #Celtics

Red finally got him at the end of his career and Pete played 26 games with rookie Larry Bird. Those were his last games in the #NBA. #Celtics

Friday

I know this football coach who’s so fond of trick plays, he has a double-reverse mortgage. #NFL #Redskins

#NFL teams wound up franchising 21 players, including 5 kickers, 1 punter + a guy who runs around the field after touchdowns waving a flag.
