NFL responds to Hargrove's claim

Anthony Hargrove claimed this week that it wasn't him who said "Give me the money" after a hard hit on Brett Favre during the NFC championship game between the Saints and Vikings -- a game that was a part of the NFL's bounty investigation. Today, NFL executive vice president of labor/general counsel Jeff Pash responded in an interview with Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com. "I suppose you could watch anything enough times and come up with different conclusions, but we didn’t discipline Anthony Hargrove for taking any money in the context of this program," Pash said. "What that video tape rather clearly demonstrates is two things: one, there was a program and it corroborates rather clearly that there was a program where a player could be rewarded for making a play that resulted in an injury to an opponent – you were basically making that point during the break; second, it demonstrates Mr. Hargrove’s awareness of the program and his understanding that it existed, and it demonstrates that his statements to our investigators in early 2010 denying the program and saying there was nothing like that  in existence were false.  That is the basis on which the commissioner imposed discipline on Mr. Hargrove." Hargove, who signed with the Packers in March, is appealing his eight-game suspension.
