Report of Sean Payton taunting Viking fans confirmed to be true

Recommended Posts

It's been reported by Jonathan Jones, confirmed by Vikings players, and yes there's photographic evidence...
 

Quote

News of the alleged taunt crept out late Sunday night, but I dismissed it as fan fodder that had no evidence. If all those cameras inside U.S. Bank Stadium couldn’t catch the head coach doing this, in my opinion, it didn’t happen. But Tuesday morning we woke to the news—first reported by former Vikings linebacker Ben Leber—being corroborated by still images.

 

And the coup de grace?  Payton fessed up to Saints reporter Mike Triplett.

This guys a grade a douchebag. That’s why his players act like the way they do. 

"Douchebag" does tend to be the first word many people use to describe Payton.

This particular incident will go down as one of the most poorly timed choices ever.

Can’t imagine the NFL is happy about this ..would love to see some sort of discipline...just to let him know it’s not ok

Not a violation of policy.

If they punished people just for being douchebags, Payton would have faced discipline a long time ago.

Why is it not ok? If he wants to focus on getting into it with fans instead of coaching, let him. I don't see the problem other than him looking like a fool.

It was great playoff fun watching them jog their asses back onto the field after that final TD that put them on the couch for next week. I tell you the Saints were more cocky this year than ever and it starts with that piece of crap coach!

He’s the face of a multi Billion dollar NFL franchise ...taunting fans isn’t exactly In the job description. Players have been fined for giving fans the finger and whatnot . How come coaches are exempt ?

There's nothing profane about the choke symbol or the Vikings' skol thing.

That was my fav moment ... them having to come back out with their tails between their legs for the PAT. And they sent out the injured punter too. I like seeing arrogant people humbled in general

This season was the last gasp for the Saints

As long as they have DB9, I find that very hard to believe.
