[QUOTE=Batmans A Scientist;4382623]You could argue that spygate helps a team win more...
BUt this is MUCH worse for the league, in terms of PR. The reflects really poorly on everyone attached with the incident, and I wouldn't be surprised if there were lawsuits that came down.
Gregg Williams is in serious, serious trouble here. The league has been preaching playing safety for a few years now, and paying a bounty to purposely injure players, whether it's common or not, is embarrassing for the league. I suspect the league is going to come down VERY hard on Williams.[/QUOTE]
Almost all teams have bounties, it's widely practiced and known throughout the league. Only one team was taping/cheating... I heard the former GM of the redskins on the radio last night, he said that this doesnt compare to spy gate for that very reason.
