For a certain segment of the sports nation, Gregg Williams is public enemy number one. Audio has surfaced of a speech Williams gave to his Saints defensive players in advance of a playoff game against the 49ers. This is a 4 minute snippet that was obtained from a documentary that was being filmed titled The United States of Football.
Obviously the severity of this speech is because by this point Williams/the Saints had already lied to the NFL about the bounty program but, where is the game of football headed at this point? I don’t think anyone seriously wants to see players hurt but how do you balance a sport that is marketed with hard hits and a gladiator mentality?
