Thumbs down This would be an utter and complete disaster for the Saints

Though the release issued by the league office mentions only fines, suspensions, and forfeiture of draft picks as possible discipline for the blatant three-year violation of the league’s bounty rules, the timing of the league’s disclosure of the information invited speculation as to whether Commissioner Roger Goodell is contemplating something a bit more creative.

Something like, say, stripping the Saints of their franchise tag for 2012.


League should consider taking Saints

This is really bad guys. I know everyone wants to act like it's no big deal and make jokes about how Shanle probably never got any bounty money but I think this is going to be devestating for the Saints. I don't think they'll take away our franchise tag but we're going to take a big step back.

Maybe the Saints can say all the unpaid money in the bounty was given to charities!!

Another question..what A Hole keeps 50,000 pages of records for an illegal act? This entire thing smells funny.

I think they did pay players but...I am curious to what the actual documents say on the matter. Reporters have a tendency to make things sound worse then they appear. Also there is really no other news to report right now...so this is the biggest story. I am also curious if they will crack down on all the teams in the NFL. Maybe the saints need to report the 49ers for being to aggressive and see what they find.

Will the look into the redskins, now that they have come foreword. I am interested to see how this all ends.

I call B.S. on the whole deal.

It's chum in the water for an otherwise headline-lacking offseason.

If we were Ohio State, I'd be concerned...

Headline-lacking offseason??? I don't know about you but I read about 10,000,000 stories daily about where Manning's going to play next season, and what team's going to trade up to the number 2 pick in the draft to get RG3. Considering we haven't made it to the draft yet I'd say it's been a pretty headline worthy offseason so far. This story is a big deal like it or not.

I agree that something isnt stirring the kool aide here.... If i were to guess, someone who is involved in this investigation, got paid themselves..... Something isnt right about this entire event..... The possibility of the saints being the first team to host a superbowl, Brees' contract situation, nicks/colston, williams defection...... I want to hear what Sean Payton has to say about this..... I WANT TO SEE THESE DOCUMENTS.... we are presuming guilt, without seeing any of their evidence..... Guilty til proven innocent? And another thing..... I dont trust Goodell any further than i could throw him..... There is a conspiracy here, i would bet my last dollar on it....

What's popular is not always right, and what's right is not always popular.....

I am more concerned with our reputation now. After reading the comments included in the article it sounds like a lot of people hate us more than ever. Those were some vicious comments. No wonder Williams bolted to the Rams. He should still be held accountable no matter where he coaches. Where in the hell do we go from here?

This is a bad day in New Oleans Saints History. We can't sign the greatest Quarterback we've ever had, and know this Bounty gate DUMB DUMB DUMB. From some of the smartest men in football.

' we have to keep this team together " Drew Brees. Then sign the dam contract. Last minute deal will happen.
