[quote]An announcement by the NFL about discipline for the New Orleans Saints for their bounty program is [url="http://twitter.com/#!/jasonlacanfora"]expected shortly[/url], according to the NFL Network.

We don’t know the exact nature of the discipline yet, but the league has said previously it could include suspensions of players, coaches and front-office officials, fines and the loss of draft picks.

As soon as the official announcement is made, I’ll be back to analyze what it means for the Saints.[/quote]

[url="http://espn.go.com/blog/nfcsouth"]http://espn.go.com/blog/nfcsouth[/url]


[b] PAYTON, WILLIAMS, LOOMIS[/b] [b]SUSPENDED[/b]

Saints head coach Sean Payton will be suspended without pay for one season; GM Mickey Loomis suspended for first eight games; former DC Gregg Williams suspended indefinitely

All below from Jason LaCanfora on twitter:

[quote]Saints fined $500K and Sean payton suspended w/o pay for the 2012 season. Mickey Loomis suspended w/o pay for 8 games...[/quote]

[quote]Gregg Williams is suspended indefinitely. Commish will review Williams situation at end of 2012 season and consider reinstatement[/quote]

[quote]Payton's suspension begins April 1, saints assistant head coach Joe Vitt suspended w/o pay for 6 games[/quote]

[quote]So, indeed, the punishments were every bit as severe as most thought were possible. And player discipline still to come[/quote]

[quote]Saints will also have to forfeit 2nd round picks in 2012 and 2013 on top of $500K fine[/quote]

[quote]So Saints don't pick til the 3rd round in April, and will be picking without Sean Payton around, as his suspension starts April 1[/quote]

[quote]The league does not stipulate when GM Mickey Loomis begins suspension but it notes 8 reg season games. With the Brees contract looming...[/quote]

[quote]It appears as if Loomis could still operate the club til Week 1. Again, no date is listed for his start[/quote]

Expecting a decision on bounty discipline for Sean Payton, Mickey Loomis, Gregg Williams and Saints team sanctions to come down shortly[/quote]

Discipline for the individual players involved likely to come at a later but could be addressed broadly today[/quote]

maybe not, that's how i interpreted it, but here's LaCanfora saying possibly otherwise on individual player punishments
