JOINT STATEMENT FROM SAINTS GM and HC
 
JOINT STATEMENT FROM SAINTS EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT /GENERAL MANAGER MICKEY LOOMIS & HEAD COACH SEAN PAYTON

For Immediate Release: March 6, 2012

We acknowledge that the violations disclosed by the NFL during their investigation of our club happened under our watch. We take full responsibility.

This has brought undue hardship on Mr. Benson, who had nothing to do with this activity. He has been nothing but supportive and for that we both apologize to him.

These are serious violations and we understand the negative impact it has had on our game. Both of us have made it clear within our organization that this will never happen again, and make that same promise to the NFL and most importantly to all of our fans.

Mickey Loomis & Sean Payton

I don't even know what to say to this

Thanks Mickey and Sean, for a sincerely unnecessary apology.

I feel like I am in an episode of the Twilight Zone.................

From other articles I am seeing looks like they have singled out the ringleader... Greg Williams.

That's one awkward sounding apology. I wonder if Payton and Loomis know they made it.

They're sorry for stuff that they don't know about. When justice is played out in the A.D.D. media, one has to expect this.

It does. Yes it does. Where's Rod Serling?
Acid flashback?

Need some comic relief at times like this. Someone has to make a Bountygate Hitler reaction. Until then, we'll have to relive more pleasant times for now ...

It's over guys. I know we don't want to give up how great it felt having such success the last few years, but it was a sham. Too good to be true. I know, I know... overreacting blah, blah, blah. Accept it guys, reality sucks and it wasn't the feel good story that we thought it was. Flame away.
