Kids—10- and 11-year-old kids—allegedly getting paid for whatever the Pop Warner equivalent of knockouts and cart-offs are. Yeah. "Kill the head and the body will grow up feeble and addled."

Drew Brees Says The NFL's Bounty Evidence Is Like Bush's WMDs. He's Not Wrong.

Leave it to Drew Brees, nominally uninvolved in the Saints bounty scandal, yet a possible target for retribution, and simultaneously embroiled in his own cash controversy.

$15,000 Says "Brad Johnson Doesn't Finish This Game": More Tales Of Redskins Bounties

The NFL will tell you repeatedly that it's the cover-up, not the crime. That the harshness of the Saints' punishment is due to the lies and obstruction from the higher-ups, even moreso than the actual bounty program.

Broadcast People: We'll Pay For Old Footage Of Things Like That Fenway Three-Way And Chris Berman Yelling At The Help

Over the years, Deadspin has hosted some ESPN footage that was never intended for air: There was Chris Berman berating the MNF production staff, and more recently a Fenway fingerblast from 1995.

Spoiler Alert: Mork "Hunting Bait" Encino survives this segment about his whole "you can hunt me for $10K (or $12K if you want me naked)" schtick. How can I be sure?
