BOUNTYGATE PENALTIES: Sean Payton suspended one year. Mickey Loomis 8 game and $500,000 fine. Saints fined $500,000 and a second round pick in 2012 and 2012. Gregg Williams is suspended indefinitely.
The penalties for the New Orleans Saints’ bounty program over the last three seasons are harsh.

Saints coach Sean Payton has been suspended without pay for one year effective April 1, executive vice president and general manager has been suspended without pay for eight regular-season games, and the club will lose two second-round draft picks and pay a $500,000 fine.

Assistant head coach Joe Vitt also received a six-game suspension. Vitt essentially served as interim head coach when Payton dealt with surgery last October, so he would not be able to serve in such a position for the first portion of 2012.

Former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, now with the St. Louis Rams, was suspended indefinitely. The NFL’s release indicates that Commissioner Roger Goodell will revisit Williams’ status following the 2012 season.

NFL is chicken#$@& for this. Way too much to suspend Payton for a year.

Goodell just dropped far in my book.

Okay. No biggie. Time to move on now. Carmichael can handle the offense, as can Brees himself. Spags will improve the defense. As far as fines, who cares. Loomis' 8 games is fairly meaningless beyond his personal pay. It won't have any affect on the off-season.
