The player's union wants to advocate for no penalties for the players and pin it all on Williams, Loomis and Payton, but they have to make sure that they have the evidence to back it up.

Looks like it ,and the NFL made it clear that they warned the Saints to stop using the system in 2009 and they said they will,but didnt. That is why the organization and the coaches are going to get hit . Lets put it this way :

-Players and GW put this system in place - they should be blamed and punished;
-The Saints organization was warned to stop using the system (reportedly,i didnt hear anything about it at the time) - they should also be blamed and punished .

I have no idea if the league will consider the players or the Saints organization the main culprit ,but i would hope it is the players,if its the team i fear we get some kind of draft picks removed or some other heavy crap.

Problem is... If you punish the players, which ones were involved? I am sure they are all honest and will fess up..

If you punish all players involved.... you punish other teams, some of those players have moved on.

I do not find it difficult to believe that Brees didn't know what was going on with the Defense. They are separate entities... I do have trouble even considering that Fujita wasn't a big part of it being on our Defense and one of the Defensive leaders...

In a way I want this over and done with. I hope the NFLPA is doing this for the entire NFL from top to bottom and not just for their own agenda.
