They could bring in the Philly style fan try-outs to bolster the roster...

Yeah, like Vince Papale ... I'm just confident that the Saints coaching staff will find a way to weather this storm ... it may not be pretty and it may not be what the fans expected for 2012/2013, but they'll get through it.

We would have crappy draft picks anyway as Superbowl Champs, so it's all good. We excel at FA's and unknowns.

Who exactly are the 22 out of 27 players accused of being involved in the bounty?

Let's sit back and make a list of who we think are involved in the so called bounty program. Other than Vilma, what other name has come up? Fujita-gone, McCray-gone, Ayeodel-gone, Hargrove-gone, Sharper-gone. I just don't think there is enough on the other players that warrants a suspension. Harper has been fined for his hit on pansy Steve Smith and that hit wasn't really vicious. The only other big hits from last year that I can remember was Jenkins on Roddy White and IAQ on Giants receiver.

The suspensions will be fought through the process and will be delayed so they won't all come down at one time. Look at the star caps case, the suspensions for those players took YEARS to be enforced. Some like Deuce were basically already out the league.

The "Star Caps case" is a very poor comparison, because that case was all about the interpretation of the letter of the law concerning the League's illegal substance policies, and therefore, it dragged on because of the varying interpretations from different sides/experts.

Here, the case is much more straightforward, because if the league has proof that a certain player was involved in the bounty program - whether contributing or earning money to/from the collective pool - they can punish the player if they so desire.
