  • Goodell lowers boom on the Saints



    Damn!! they got nailed. I guess we can beat them this year haha
    </p>


    </p>

    As expected, Commissioner Roger Goodell has hit the Saints hard for the bounty system that was employed for three seasons.</p>


    Per a league source, head coach Sean Payton has been suspended for the full year.</p>


    But it could have been worse for Payton. Former Saints defensive
    coordinator Gregg Williams has been suspended indefinitely.
    (Presumably, that means at least a year.)</p>


    Also, G.M. Mickey Loomis has been suspended for eight games.</p>

          They should have taken the Saints next year 1st Rd pick instead of a 2nd Rd.

            The only thing that surprises me is that Payton got hit so hard. I guess you can make the argument that he's the guy in charge and had to have known about it and condoned it, even if it wasn't his idea.

              One year for Payton is ok, should have been worse. I was hoping Williams was going to get banned. I think Loomis should have gotten at least a year also, but Goodell had to think of the team and owner.

              I'm waiting to see what happens to the players involved. NFLPA asked Goodell to wait until after their investigation.

                  2 2nd rounders is worth about as much as one 1st for a team that's usually picking in the late 20s or 30s. And this is a more immediate impact since they lose a pick this year instead of just next year.

                    Wow, Goodell really hit them where it hurts. Lost draft picks won't kill a team, but this can.
                    Coupled with the Brees contract issues, this could be a lost season for them.

                      He isnt done yet, he is going after the players in round 2.

                      And people were saying that Goodell didnt have the balls to do anything, lol!

                        Thats true but I was just saying that they should have taken the Saints 2nd round pick this year and their 1st rd pick next year, but I hear what your are saying.

                          LMAO! Players may take the hardest hits of them all.. I guess they organized everything (pay scale) and paid the fines out..

                            Ha ha, better get that contract done before the GM gets iced for half a season!
