DISCUSSION: WHAT PUNISHMENT FOR GREGG WILLIAMS, SAINTS? (http://www.bigblueview.com/2012/3/5/2846023/discussion-what-punishment-for-gregg-williams-new-orleans-saints)

"Bounty hunter Gregg Williams will be taken to the woodshed today by NFL
Sheriff Roger Goodell when Williams has to meet with Goodell to discuss bounty
payments to between 22 and 27 defensive players from 2009 through 2011 while
Williams was defensive coordinator of the <a class="sbn-auto-link" href="http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/teams/new-orleans-saints">New Orleans
Saints</a>.


Simple topic today. What should the gun-slinging Sheriff Goodell do with
Williams and the Saints? What punishment fits this crime?</p>


SI's Peter King wrote today (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2012/writers/peter_king/03/02/saints.bounties/index.html?eref=nflg) that "There's little doubt the
penalties on the Saints will be worse than what the league did to the Patriots (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/teams/new-england-patriots) for
the Spygate scandal in 2007."</p>


Punishment isn't likely to be announced today, but should come before league meetings (https://twitter.com/#%21/JayGlazer/status/176048703331774464) at the end of this
month.</p>


What would you do if you were Goodell? You know he will come down hard,
especially considering his push for a kinder, gentler NFL."</p>

Lose second and third picks this year, first next year. 600,000 dollar fine to the saints organization. I think Gregg Williams will keep his job, but Jeff Fischer will eventually be convinced to part ways with him before their first season in st Louis.

You also have to find a way to punish the players, though. Losing draft picks is what players want. . .more job security.

Its going to get ugly. The legal ramifications are brutal and will take a huge toll on them.

Here's one issue that will be interesting. We have information that Williams has done this for years with at least three of his former teams. The consensus seems to be that the punishment will be "severe." I have no idea what "severe" actually means but if it involves a suspension/ban for Williams is that fair to his the Rams which, as far as I know, is not involved is the bounty business.

Then there is the issue of owner Tom Benson ordering the practice to stop and they continued it until all of this bubbled to the surface again. How does he react to all of this? Will he be able to just move on and be confident in his front office to act as he expects them to?

What is interesting is Tony Dungy has implicated Jeff Fisher in a similar scheme when he was with the titans. The league is beginning to look into it.

The rams may find themselves a self coached team.

Make the Saints join the UFL for 3 years.
