After the unprecedented beat-down given to the Saints by Commissioner Goodell and the kick 'em while their down efforts of New York media, have been looking for something good to take from the ongoing events of Bountygate...

With the anticipated penalties coming for players and a new defensive coordinator in Steve Spagnuolo, who'll be objective as he is tasked in getting the defense to a championship level, the player suspensions may have a long term positive effect on the organization....
