Get in line and watch all of your questions get answered:
Payton and Loomis will get nothing more than a wrist slap couple of games suspension and some cash penalty at most
I can promise you Brees will sign a multi year contract and all will be in love again
Defense will be better than before, Vilma is going to be replaced by a younger better version, better corners and best of all best DC in the league.
14-2, 15-1 very real possibility
Riiiight, we're waiting all this time so Goodell can slap people on the wrist. He had his office conduct a 3 year investigation involving over 50k pages worth of documents so he could slap someone on the wrist. Do you even hear how stupid that sounds?
If it was going to be a slap on the wrist, then the slap would have already been delivered. The NFL would like nothing more then to put this behind them and move on. The fact that this process is taking so long indicates the severity of the punishment that's coming.
Did you notice the NFLPA asked the NFL not to suspend any players before it had a chance to conclude it's own investigation? What does that tell you? If you have a brain, it tells you that significant player suspensions are coming. The NFL told the NFLPA what they planned to do and the NFLPA thought it was so severe that they wanted to conduct their own investigation before they signed off on it. How many times in the past (if ever) has the NFL approached the NFLPA in a case like this and asked them to sign off on it? Would they bother doing that for a slap on the wrist? No, of course not.
Did you also notice that your owner and scumbag HC spent a few days in NYC meeting with Goodell? What does that tell you? If you have a brain, it tells you the Saints are VERY concerned about the punishment that's coming... so concerned that they traveled up to NYC and requested a face-to-face meeting with the commissioner to do damage control (which I'm sure fell on deaf ears after the multiple warnings the Saints received and ignored to put a stop to the bounty system).
I promise you that the punishment coming to the Saints will dwarf any punishment in the history of the NFL... it will make the spygate punishment look like a slap on the wrist. The punishment will be such that no other team would dare tolerate a bounty system for fear of receiving a similar punishment.
Spin it however you want... but you know I'm right.
