Pretty much every team since the history of football has gone out trying to injure the other team's best players. It's part of the sport.
Brett Favre himself says as much:
"I'm not pissed. It's football. I don't think anything less of those guys."
Although Goodell would never admit it, that's the more minor issue. The league is far more upset about the possibility to circumvent its bullshit salary cap.
Beast Mode gonna Beast in the Emerald City again (although I fear a little regression to the mean...)
I've always wondered about circumventing the cap in devious ways. Mark Cuban probably has some offshore bank accounts, no? We're probably looking at double the Spygate penalties, here.
Colts are going to cut Peyton Manning.
How the fuck do you cut him? They seriously couldn't get a trade of any kind?
its that bonus. everyone knows the colts dont want to pay it, and they sure as fuck dont want to pay it themselves with that neck. so ya, i can see that
I doubt anyone would have traded for him before the $28 million deadline.
Any competitor that was interested in a trade would have made the Colts eat that salary hit first.
So the Colts are basically saying, "better to not eat $28 million than to pay it and maybe get something in return via a trade."
