this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Personally I'm not going to boycott anything. I love the NFL and will be watching my Sunday Ticket just like every other year. Hell, that's like asking me to boycott crawfish ... or beer. No way!!...

Business as usual eh?

Not me. I'll watch games (and that's IF I decide to watch) for free on TV or hacked on the web. I am increasingly disgusted with what the NFL is becoming under Goodell's watch, and I am FURIOUS at the motivation for all this, which is pre-trial posturing. It's sickening. I don't understand why other people don't feel the same way. Seriously. I just don't understand. We don't have a team without the league. The game is changing right before our eyes and people are willing to say "it's all going to be okay". It's NOT okay. Not if you are a football fan.

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!

The only way to be heard is protests outside games and don't buy tickets to the games.

Easier said than done.

We'd have to be organized...

Already done. I'm taking my oldest boy golfing on Sundays. Screw the NFL. I'll watch LSU and that's about it. Still a Saints fan, just not of the NFL anymore.

It's the emotions talking. Once training camp starts back up, everyone will be alright.

Anyways, the punishment is just. I am a bit shocked by how long Payton is suspended.
Then what do you call the 49ers and Pats punishments for bona fide CHEATING... for years! Those punishments were not nearly as harsh as what the Saints got. It's anything but just.

Don't forget that Stallworth got the same punishment for killing someone while driving drunk.

We obviously don't buy any merchandise.
What else though? Not much we can do that won't bring more attention to the NFL and that EFF-FACE Goddell
We cancel it TODAY... I'm canceling my Sunday Ticket today. Cancelling it any other day will be little to no impact. I'm making a statement.
