Ex-Saints coach, Greg Williams, was suspended indefinitely after it was discovered that he instituted a bounty system. The players were paid an extra $1,500 for getting a player on the opposing team out of the game with a serious injury. No one was sure about exactly how Williams told his players to go about inflicting these injuries, but what was revealed on these tapes is shocking in nature.
“Little 32, we want to knock the (expletive) out of him,” Williams is heard telling his players in a profanity-laced speech to his defensive players the night before the Saints lost a playoff game to the San Francisco 49ers last January.
“We’ve got to make sure we do everything in the world to make sure we kill Frank Gore’s head. We need to decide on how many times we can meet Frank Gore’s head,” Williams is heard saying.
“We need to decide how many times we can bull rush and we can (expletive) clip Vernon Davis’s ankles over the pile,” Williams is heard saying.
“He becomes human when you (expletive) take out that outside ACL,” Williams says in reference to Wide receiver Michael Crabtree.
“That little wide receiver (Kyle Williams), number 10, about his concussion. We need to (expletive) put a lick on him right now,” Williams says on the tape.
The tapes were submitted by film maker, Sean Pamphilon. He followed the Saints around last year for a documentary on U.S. football. These tapes prove that Williams received the proper punishment that he deserved.
