That's how I remembered it too, and a quick internet search of articles written at the time confirms.

Of course, the only reason this happened was because Goodell was out to hurt the Saints any way he could :wacko:


GODDELL!!!!!!

Drew Brees is getting pretty desperate and redundant with his attacks on Goodell.

He also vilified Williams for that bounty audio recording yet painted the players as innocent pawns lol.

To be totally honest Id feel much better with him calling a game between us and the Saints than a ref who hides their allegiance to a team. You cant honestly tell me that you think all of the refs on all of the crews dont have a favorite team.

At least if you know who they are you know how to keep an eye on them.


It's kind of a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" thing, I guess.

You can bet the NFL wants no part of a Tim Donaghy type scandal, or even the appearance of one.

I'm gonna really enjoy the day Gregg Williams finally decides to go public with everything he knows.

You can bet it'll be epic :lol:

You know they'd be going into the Super Bowl undefeated this Sunday if it weren't for Gordell.

Who else remembers how absolutely giddy they were at the thought of Goodell handing them the Lombardi in the middle of the Superdome? Some of them were dead certain it was going to happen :lol:

Reality may have set in for the moment, but I'm sure Payton being reinstated will stoke their delusions soon enough.

Typical saints fan response. Get caught with your hand in the cookie jar, blame someone else.

Let' see - Gordell screwed the Saints, screwed the bounty players, screwed Greg Williams, screwed Sean "do your job" Payton, and now they ruined this bozo's life? Pretty good 2012 in my book, Roger.

To hell with all of them.

Related Note: Goodell is not going to give the Saints their second round pick back for the coming draft.

He said he might have considered it if they had a really high pick like the #1.

(darn you, Gordell) :angry:

His Facebook page was littered with Saints fans and Saints pictures. He really is trying to say he wasn't a Saints fan? This guy was a HUGE Saints fan. I'll believe it when my poo turns purple.
