What They Are Saying In New Orleans....

Recommended Posts

Love to look at local newspaper links.

Here is a rational statement.

Of course there are differeing opinions.

Should be interesting at next years SB.

Don't blame the NFL or commissioner Roger Goodell for the sanctions levied against the New Orleans Saints today. Blame Sean Payton, Mickey Loomis, Gregg Williams and Joe Vitt. ......Their cavalier attitudes and carelessness left the league with no recourse and has caused irreparable short- and long-term damage to the organization.

Yea this is one of those cases where the guilty party knew exactly what they were doing was wrong and kept doing it. So you can argue all day whether or not the punishment is severe enough or not but at the end of the day its the Saints organizations and coaches fault.

They will find a scapegoat as long as he is isn't in the organization. The "Saints" are just that... Saints. :rolleyes:

The NFL is sending a harsh message to serve notice to the rest of the league. Sometimes, in business and in life, you have to set a new precedent to prevent future abuse of the system. They can call it unfair all they want; they just set a new bar for how these actions will be dealt with.

I'm sure other teams have bounties.

The bottom line is the saints are the only ones retarded enough to put it in writing. What a bunch of morons.

Today....

Essentially, the Saints told Goodell: "It's our universe" and to go away.

Payton and the Saints now will pay the price for this hubris.

The same arrogance which helped propel Payton and the Saints to unprecedented heights on the field the past six years helped undercut them off of it. They became corrupted by their own perceived omnipotence, and their greatest strength became their most debilitating weakness.

"A combination of elements made this matter particularly unusual and egregious," Goodell said in a damning report released by the league Wednesday. "When there is targeting of players for injury and cash rewards over a three-year period, the involvement of the coaching staff, and three years of denials and willful disrespect of the rules, a strong and lasting message must be sent that such conduct is totally unacceptable and has no place in the game."

But the cover-up by the team's front office disrespected Goodell and his seat of power. From the outset of the investigation, the Saints acted with blatant disregard for the NFL office.

The investigation also exposed one of the best-kept secrets of Payton's tenure: His dysfunctional relationship with Williams. The two maintained a professional working relationship, but Payton never trusted his defensive coordinator. That was clear in the NFL report, which said one of Vitt's primary roles "was to monitor the activity of Coach Williams. This was based on the direction of Coach Payton, who apparently had less than full confidence in Coach Williams."

If the reports are true that the Saints' front office tried to paint Williams as a rogue vigilante to the league office during the investigation, you can rest assured Williams did likewise to them behind closed doors.

The most amazing part is all the dillweeds saying "Other teams have bounties" and "Other teams got penalties". They can't comprehend that they were warned and blatantly ignored it.
