Saints coach Sean Payton was shocked to find out today that he has been banished from the NFL for the entire 2012 season for his teams bounty scandal.

Jay Glazer said on NFL Network that he interviewed Payton immediately after the news came down, and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodells punishment is far more severe than Payton was expecting.

I did talk to him and hes stunned to say the least, Glazer said. I think the entire team thought maybe thered be a four-game suspension, but not a year. I said, Are you OK? And he said, No, Im not OK. He is stunned. Hes going to lose about $8 million. He is beside himself here.

Glazer reports that Paytons plan for the four-game suspension he had braced himself for was to have assistant head coach/linebackers coach Joe Vitt take over as interim head coach while Payton served the suspension. But that plan is now out the window because Vitt has been suspended six games for his own role in the bounty scandal.

The Saints may now have either offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael or former Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo, who was slated to replace Gregg Williams as defensive coordinator, step in as the head coach.

Spags, I guess, will be the Acting Head Coach.

I said, ‘Are you OK?’ And he said, ‘No, I’m not OK.’ He is stunned. He’s going to lose about $8 million.

You just got kick'in the balls. Did you do anything to stop it. What the heck did you think was going to happen. Don't play dumb.

Oh I hope so Halo. I don't know all about whether he can or can't - the legalities of it all, but if he CAN, I'd find myself a bad-ass lawyer and sue the piss out of the NFL.
