Yup. Another reason why Loomis and Payton are staying put.

Benson
Loomis is like a son to Mr. Benson, and, Mr. Benson will never fire his son.

So, we better hope that Loomis does well, because he has a job for life.
That is eminently clear.

The one who should be fired for this is Gregg Williams, and that's already been done. Seriously. Get real. It could have even been that they knew last year this charge/report was coming, inside of the organization, and that's why they let him go.

“Mr. Benson advised league staff that he had directed his general manager, Mickey Loomis, to ensure that any bounty program be discontinued immediately. The evidence showed that Mr. Loomis did not carry out Mr. Benson’s directions.”
Am I the only person who thinks GW could run a bounty scheme WITHOUT Loomis or SP knowing about it?

GW was in 100% control of the defense. I'm sure knowing what they were doing was illegal made the defense a little quiet about what was going on. I'm sure they weren't just bragging about it at the facility and to other coaches.

No biggie in my book. Its like side-bets in golf. It doesn't affect how you play the game, it just provides braggin rights when its over, or in my case humility.

Why the Saints? Why not come down on the Ravens, Giants, or 49'ers?

Player Safety? What about the constant chop-block effort by Falcons and Broncos?

The League has its darlings and then the league has the 'other kids'...

And we're one of the 'other kids'

So you think firing the best GM/Head Coach tandem, the Saints have ever had, in their entire history, is the best way to go? Are you high? No, no, no..... I agree with Halo on this one.... Williams was the mastermind behind this whole thing.... How do we know, that this isn't the reason that Loomis let Williams go in the first place? I'm still waiting for Payton to respond to this..... The last thing you do, is fire either one..... Forget "messages" being sent..... The only message that matters to me, is the one they send to the fans, where they say, "we aren't going to screw all of you, in the process."

And here's another thing..... Benson doesn't have the best "track record" when it comes to major decisions..... That's why we were never as successful, with him running the show.... He's the last one that should make this decision....

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