This spells it out pretty well

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I couldn't care what other teams fans think. Aside from whatever Punishment the league throws out way my only worry is that you can guarantee anytime we go near another teams QB there will be more penalties against us. The ...

The mud will stick but when the media get there teeth into the next scandal the circus will move on

I had been oblivious to this story all weekend. I kept hearing "bounty story" teasers on the local (DFW) sports station driving in. Never would've dreamed it was about my team, but I started getting nervous when the only two soundbites they played were from Farve and Warner. They both said basically "it's football", and Warner said that it was a clean hit that took him out. I think it'll blow over. ESPN was saying it could mean an 8 game suspension for Payton, and Williams might be barred from the NFL for 2 years. I never liked G. Williams and I'm damned glad he's gone.

Never liked him...

At the 2009 season you can't find a Saints fan alive that would say they didn't like him.

It wasn't until the end of 2010 when it started to unravel for him.

In the last couple of years we do seem to have been arrogant. In 2009 we were confident and hungry. We may be about to be brought down a few notches. Of course, we do well with the "us against the world" attitude.

Almost seems as if they all agreed that he should find work elsewhere.
Somewhat try to dis-associate themselves from the ring leader in this scandal.
Not going to help much it seems. He didn't take the turd with him.
Now the media nor the league is not going to let this thing crust over.

Agree salary cap and injuries!!

In more ways than one, these Saints were sinners - The Boston Globe
YOu know what? It took years for the hammer to come down on Will Smith and the Vikings players. Who knows if we will even see reprocussions this year. I think there is going to be a league wide investigation and more teams will get exposed.

That was different, because there was the whole question of whether of not the StarCaps product violated the NFL substance abuse policies - there's no question here whether or not this activity violates NFL policies and rules.

Nope...This will be swift and hard I'm afraid. Goodell has to keep his a**-kissing buddies in the media happy, so hold on, it's gonna be a rough ride.

I liked GW when he was on our side. I hate him now that he is against us. I stopped supporting his style of defense at the end of 2010, but I have always liked a healthy disdain for authority.
