Please..give me a break. I know you think Drew is all squeaky clean but this crap has been going on forever. We are the ones getting caught because of a little ***** on our team.

Maybe I didn't quite elaborate well enough on what I was trying to say... Drew led the charge in the CBA negotiations last offseason in trying to get rid of the franchise tag. Now that he might be the victim of it, plus losing two players who help him exponentially in his success... He might not want to be a part of the fallout from these shenanigans. I'm sorry if I misspoke or sounded a little ignorant... the whole thing has me upset.

I hear ya but this whole thing should have you questioning the motives. The media is making this like we were trying to kill people. I truly believe this was just a motivation tool to add incentive to make a big play. They were told to stop because of what this would look like if it got out and low and behold look what happened.

Where's all the "GW" homers now?

And why should their be any penalty - did they see the way the defense has performed the past two seasons?!?

You won't hear me apologizing for supporting GW while he was here. I got the satisfaction of experiencing the only championship in the history of our franchise.

There are no words to describe how I feel at this moment. It's a good thing I'm no where near GW.

The ramifications of this are going to put us back in the dark ages with this team. We all thought we had this great locker room and we take in some strays and took a chance and this is what we got for it.

I believe this is rampant throughout the NFL, not just something singular to the Saints. I believe that if Goodell, who I feel is the worst commissioner the NFL has ever had, punishes the Saints before completing a full investigation of every team in the league and then taking equal action against every team that has done this, then it shows bias and an intention to single out the Saints to do damage that will impact this team for decades.

I believe that this investigation was started by that gutless wonder Childress and the equally gutless fans and players of the Vikings. I wonder if that college D-Line coach that worked for us for 1 lousy year then ran back to the college ranks was the rat. I hope we all find out who did this so he can reap his just rewards. So that everyone throughout the league knows who and what he is. That does not remove the fact that GW, SP and Loomis allowed this to continue, which is hard to believe because of the pathetic play and hits of this sorry excuse for a defense, but now we're going all the way back to square 1 with our reputation and our ability to attract free agents or for that matter, even draft choices to this team. We finally had what we've been waiting for, for years. A respectable team. Run with class and dignity and finally professionalizm. I am so disappointed in our coaching staff, our head coach ( That's ok Sean, we all know you got a gig in Dallas anytime you want it.) and Mickey Loomis that I can't even wear my Saints gear with pride, this team has embarrassed itself, it's ownership and more importantly it's loving, devout and loyal fan base that supports them better than ANY other team's fans support their teams. This is a very sad day.

Exactly!! If this would have been the Steelers or Lions(sorry Slo) I would beleive it because of all the fines they received. How many fines did our players get? I can only think of 2 players. Harper and Thomas for putting a bow on a football.
