Good. There's no place for this kind of crap in professional sports. Payton's suspension should have been longer.

gilgigamesh: The Saints made the mistake of getting caught, and so Goddell is making an example out of us.


No, they made the mistakes of:

1) Getting caught
2) Lying about it
3) Continuing the policy for two more years
4) Getting caught again

Sorry, if you're not smart enough to stop doing something after being the target of a league investigation, you don't deserve any leniency because you're idiots.

Here's some perspective. Sean Payton's suspension is longer than these suspensions:

Michael Vick - for gambling and murdering dogs in an illegal dog-fighting operation that put him in federal prison

Ben Roethlisberger - for multiple rape accusations.

Bill Belichek - actually cheating

Ray Lewis - being implicated in a murder, agreeing to testify in exchange for non-prosecution only to change his testimony at trial

Michael Irvin - Hookers and blow. Duh.

Tank Johnson - arsenal of guns and assaults.

Plaxico Burress - illegally discharging a gun in a New York nightclub and going to jail

I guess you could say that Payton's worst transgression was lying to Roger Goodell, but Vick did that, too.

IMDWalrus: I hope you realize how dumb


I hope you realize we could have had a conversation about this, but now we can't. I'm sure we'll both be fine in the end.

Nabb1: What Goodell has done, however, screws fans in general and specifically Saints season ticket holders.


Bullshiat. What the Saints did screwed fans of other teams who see their season go to shiat because their QB had a bounty on his head and won't be playing the rest of the season.

And the Saints better watch out next year because I'm sure other teams will be trying to take cheap shots at Saints players next season.

R.A.Danny: Nabb1: Or at least drop the hammer BEFORE we pay thousands of dollars to keep our season tickets.

The Saints organization should be offering some kind of apology (at least) or compensation for selling an inferior product. It's the Saints that owe the fans something here, not the league.


From the Saints yesterday:

"We recognize our fans' concerns and we regret the uncertainty this episode has created for them. We are humbled by the support our organization has received from our fans today in the wake of this announcement, and we ask them to continue to stand with us, as they have done in the past, when both our team and our city have overcome greater adversities.

"To our fans, the NFL and the rest of our league, we offer our sincere apology and take full responsibility for these serious violations. It has always been the goal of the New Orleans Saints to create a model franchise and to impact our league in a positive manner. There is no place for bounties in our league and we reiterate our pledge that this will never happen again."

The official release from the league yesterday made no mention of the fans, and specifically stated that team ownership had absolutely no knowledge of the bounties, unequivocally instructed Loomis to put an end to them when informed about it, and basically cleared ownership of any wrongdoing. Payton and Loomis (and Vitt and Williams) owe fans an apology, and Benson still owes us an apology for some of his past transgressions, but this isn't one of them, as far as I can tell.

JohnBigBootay: Sapp's blindside on Chad Clifton about ten years ago. Everybody talks about Harrison (James or Rodney) or Suh, etc. but for my money the Sapp hit was far more brutal and unnecessary than any other hit I've seen in the last decade.



i was saying yesterday in the "shockey was the rat" detour the suspension thread took, how i'll never forget the then-Packer coach (mike sherman, fritz sherman, fritz shurmer, whatever) runing up to Sapp and having words, and then Sapp shouting at him -- a mid-thirties professional athlete, 6'3", 290, versus a 60yr old man -- "PUT ON A HELMET! PUT ON A HELMET! PUT ON A HELMET! PUT ON A HELMET!"

What a farkin' JACKBAG.

I think we are missing the big picture here. Sapp is a total douche.

Either be 100% sure of what you are about to say and be willing to reveal your source or shut the fark up until you are 100% of it and are willing to reveal your source.

R.A.Danny: Nabb1: but there is a sense among Saints fans right now that the suspension of Payton for a whole year is disproportionate and vindictive

The entire sport is contracted assault. Let's not all clutch our pearls, here. We (football fans) all like to see people get hit. Sure, we don't like dirty hits, cheap hits, hits after the play is over, but we all like to see big tackles, sacks that force turnovers, defensive backs flying in and breaking up a reception with a good, hard hit. We don't tune in every Sunday to watch flag football. This punishment is for the lying and the cover-up, which was stupid and arrogant in the extreme. I'm willing to bet if the Saints had put a stop to all of this back in 2010 when they were told to, we'd never have heard anything about it. So, go ahead and punish the Saints, and punish Payton, but hit them where it hurts them more than it hurts us. Or at least drop the hammer BEFORE we pay thousands of dollars to keep our season tickets. Just show us some consideration here, even if it's just doling out the punishment before season ticket money is due.
