Shall we call week 12 of the NFL season, or Thanksgiving week 2012 as the week of the Bounty?
Pete Prisco of CBSSports cites that game as one that he is salivating over. He said in his column today, “
San Francisco 49ers at New Orleans Saints
This is a rematch of the Bounty Game from last season's playoffs when Gregg Williams delivered his now-famous pregame speech. But it also happened before a classic game, one the 49ers won in the closing seconds. That game was big for 49ers quarterback Alex Smith. He'll most likely have to match scores with Drew Brees. That isn't easy -- especially in the Superdome.
He also said the following regarding another rematch from last year:
The 2012 NFL regular season schedule is due out any day now, and contrary to popular belief, the Saints will not play a regular season game or even a scrimmage with the Hornets. That is not to say, however, that it would not happen if the owner of both franchises demands it. Tom Benson, the long-time Saints owner who bought the Hornets this week from the NBA, is on a roll and could probably have anything he wants. The Benson Magic obviously has rubbed off on his newest team, which is 4-0 since he began serious negotiations to buy the franchise and assure it will stay in New Orleans.
With liberals in control of academia, the unions, Hollywood, Wall Street, the media, and of course, the White House, it would seem the left would be in a very happy mood in our country. Yet, each day, radical liberals show their anger at ordinary Americans and conservatives who do not share their leftist ideology.
Suspended New Orleans coach Sean Payton can't have contact with anyone on the Saints or in the NFL during his suspension. …Adam Schefter of Sportscenter
Legal experts and trial attorneys say they expect more complaints against the NFL to point to the Saints' scandal after the ex-players filed suit contending the bounty system was another example that the league "explicitly relied on violence" and neglected to educate players on the dangers of concussions.

Jindal versus Vitter
Most local politicos have known that the two top GOP leaders in Louisiana, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and U.S. Senator David Vitter are light years away on various issues with the Senator frequently taking a dig at the Governor’s legislative policies and courage while at the same time commending him for at least, something.
Big day for New Orleans Saints: No Drew Brees (in New Orleans), no Payton but yes to big NBA brass.
Drew Brees is in New York today attending a NFLPA exe. committee meeting.
Yet, according to ESPN, The New Orleans Saints start training camp without Brees, who is holding out due to contract dispute.
Brees has denied texting Parcells during the discussion for head coach, although it has been rumored that he had such communications.
The New Orleans Saints have had a crazy spring and it now gets even more chaotic.
With the Draft approaching, vacancy in top coach spots, Brees virtually on his knees begging for a fair contractual shake, and now owner Tom Benson and top management engaged in split loyalties and duties with the newly purchased New Orleans Hornets, the New Orleans Saints might not be a big audience town, but it is indeed a town commanding a big audience.
So, here’s the news for today:
Has the media has been sensationalizing the Trayvon Martin-George Zimmerman case to the exclusion of other shootings and crimes occurring throughout America?
Kinda. The Executive Vice President of the National Rifle Association, Wayne LaPierre accused the media of “sensational reporting from Florida”.
Now that Tom Benson owns the NFL New Orleans Saints and the NBA New Orleans Hornets, other than wondering what might be the new basketball team’s name, the talk has been on two somewhat related issues:
Will Benson be able to focus upon both a flailing NBA team and a battered NFL team who could find numerous defensive players sitting on the bench for games, due to the bountygate drama?
