Before January’s Saints-49ers playoff game, New Orleans defensive coordinator Gregg Williams urged his players to injure their opponents in a profanity-laced speech.Williams was suspended indefinitely as a result of the bounty program he helped run.
The audio was captured by documentary filmmaker Sean Pamphilon, who put part of the speech on YouTube and let Yahoo! writer Mike Silver listen to the entire thing.
The damning quotes:
