Whether you believe him or not, at least he said something. It would be a bit strange for him to admit to a late hit and lie about everything else. In a case like that, why would he issue a statement at all? He could not say anything, like many of the other players. The current Saints' players may be under a gag order, but Hargrove is not. He can say whatever he wants.
Pigs have flown. Hell has frozen over. Rickey Jackson and William Roaf made the Hall of Fame. The Saints have won the Superbowl.
Typical whiny Cryking statements from the author at the end. All I could think the whole time was, yeah I'm sure none of those old Viking teams had a bounty on Favre when he was a Packer. At least he admits Hargrove's statement strikes him as the truth though. So I'll give him props for that.

I am so glad thar Hargrove made that statement. This whole bounty thing is being blown way out of context. I wonder if ESPN will broadcast this statement. I'm doubtful because it conflicts with their agenda/story/ratings.
Well thats wonderful he came out and clarified what morons are saying about the Saints. Roger Goodell will not cripple our team of whats happened here. Everyone speculates it, but when he likes a team, the penalty is usually not so harsh. Sure it'll cost money but whatever, other teams do the same thing having not gotten caught, most were legal hits, and if everyone came out and spit out what happens behind the curtain, the NFL would not be where its at today.
The thing that has never made any sense to me is the money. They keep saying stuff like a Saints defender would intentionally injure a player for $1,500. So why would a player intentionally pop a QB late for $1,500 if he knows he will then be fined $20,000?
