"This" isn't. What the NFL has become under Roger Goodell is. I can see you either don't get that or you don't care. I care. It's just sad is what it is.

This, I don't care how few points the opposing team has. Light em up like a pinball machine. Stomp on the throat of the competition all the way to SB and let Drew lift that trophy in Goodell's face and him have to congratulate us!

NO Quarter!

Is Goodell going to go after all the other teams that admitted they ARE paying for fumble recoveries, sacks, interceptions, etc.?
That's what I'm looking for now:
...all the other teams that had pay for perfomance pots around the league.
A host of other players/coaches have admitted to rewards and prizes beyond contract monies.
Now it's time to spread the punishment to all who drank from the cup.
The investigation as I have read was not confined to the Saints camp.
Surely, others have been found guilty of the same infraction.

Conflict of interest.

How can you give the Saints the death penalty (or at least by my view, a pretty stiff penalty) and suspend the coach for the year, the GM for the important part of the year, then have the audacity to keep the Super Bowl in our gym?!

It's evident that the NFL wants to do what it can to shoot down the Saints for the 2012 season as punishment. Will I expect us to get fair treatment from the refs this season? Most definitely not. Goodell has quite a bit of David Stern in him.

Seems like we're in the minority of people not freaking out. The punishments really aren't bad, I was personally expecting worse. As a I said in one of the other threads, losing Payton for a year stinks but we'll be fine with the players and coaches we currently have. Plus, how awesome will it be when Goodell has to hand us the Lombardi trophy in New Orleans at the end of the season. It will be the greatest awkward moment in the history of sports. Just the thought of him having to congratulate us in front of millions of viewers and hand us the trophy has me smiling. Don't worry Saints fans, things are going to be fine. Who Dat!

I guess you fail to realize that the penalties for the players aren't out yet.

We won't have enough players to put 11 guys who play D out there. This is a loss season.

I think in protest Benson shouldn't send the team to games... don't show up.

The penalties aren't bad... you guys need to get off the crack yall are smokin'

No one expected these penalties being SP out for a year.

The players haven't even got their penalties yet.

I am ok with the draft picks but geez a HC out for a year over this. BS.
