The New Orleans Saints and general manager Mickey Loomis followed head coach Sean Payton in appealing their penalties stemming from the "bounty" scandal that engulfed the franchise from 2009 through 2011.

The Saints, fined $500,000 and docked two second-round draft picks, and Loomis, suspended the first eight games of the 2012 season, are appealing their punishments separately to the league, Saints vice president of communications Greg Bensel said Friday. Bensel confirmed "that the team and Mickey Loomis albeit separately have respectfully filed an appeal with the league."

per NFL.....

I figured he would wait until the final hour to appeal to buy some extra time with the team. Dumbass.

Can't believe Goodell is going to give those liars a chance to appeal.

Haha, the fools are just buying time. Can't wait for player suspensions to come out. Can we please have another dancing gif thread when the player suspensions come out?

Wonder how many games the players all together will be suspended? As the Saints season is doomed now with Payton suspended for the year!

if this ever happend to the panthers-- we would want our staff to do the exact same thing.

it happend, this appeal obviously is just to buy time ( I doubt it'll backfire) the commish seems to be fair and although each situation is different the process is the same for each one.

As for player suspensions, they are coming-- but some expect them to be staggered ie. vilma first 8 games, grant last 8 games-- that is also fair IMO but I WOULDN"T be surprised if they are not staggered either.

I was reading in SI that the main reason the taints* are still in NOLA is because of Goodell, and them little shits are giving him greif over the decision. They forget recent history I suppose.....
