Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe seems irate over the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal. He told “Judd & Phunn” on 1500 ESPN that he would like to see Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma and former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams banned from the NFL.
“I was pleased,” Kluwe said when asked about Goodell’s actions per ESPN1500. “My position has always been that I think Vilma and Gregg Williams should be banned for life and then Payton should get a year, their GM should get a year and anyone who knowingly took money after a hit that injured someone should get a year as well.”
During the 2009 NFC Championship game, Kluwe clearly saw the Saints defense going after former Vikings quarterback Brett Favre, but didn’t want to believe it.
“Me and Ryan (Longwell) were kind of looking at each other on the bench going, ‘Are they really going after Brett?’” Kluwe said. “Like, ‘Is this really what they’re doing?’ But you don’t want to believe that something like that is happening because you think better of the other players.
“You don’t want to think that they’re doing something like that. I think that was part of the thing that the league was looking at (in its investigation) was like, ‘OK, we’ve really got to make sure that this is true because otherwise it’s going to make the sport look really bad.’”Follow PFZ on Twitter @ProFootballZone
