Why We’re Going a Little Overboard With the Gregg Williams/Saints Situation

I was just reading Steve Young's opinion that the Saints should be sued by any opponent who got injured against them over the last few years, and I have to say that I think that's a little over the line.

Now granted, paying player's incentives to hurt other players isn't right, but how many times were the Saints flagged for playing outside of the boundaries of the game?

Were they penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct more than the average NFL team over the time span that Gregg Williams was there?

If not, what are you suing them for, exactly?

If they weren't penalized for doing anything illegal, how can you sue them for playing the game?  The most they could do is hit you harder than they normally would during the course of a play.  

How is that grounds for getting sued? 

Now if you stepped on a guy's bicep or something, and injure him, that's something different.

Was Gregg Williams wrong for what he did?  Absolutely.  Does Gregg Williams and/or the Saints deserve to be punished?  The jury's still out on that one (pun intended).

What do you think?  Do you disagree with me?  Leave a comment below, or hit me up on Twitter to rap about it.
