Anyone thought of this? Bet Mr. Dumbell hasn't.
What happens when our players face the inevitable retaliation from some players that think we tried to take them out? What happens if the refs automatically assume that anything our defense does more than two-hand touch is a penalty or late hit?

Will the Great Commish deal with them as harshly, or is this just going to be considered more of our punishment?

This judge & jury commissioner has his boot on the throat of this franchise.

I can appreciate what happened DESERVES punishment, but this man is walking dangerously close to sinking this franchise between the draft picks and suspensions already handed down (and the impact they will have on the draft and free agency and the Brees negotiations).

If he lets the rest of the league try to exact revenge as well, then he sanctions destroying the team for YEARS...

I don't see it; next year everything is back to normal minus only a 2nd round pick...

I don't see destroyed for years...

I'm saying worst case - Brees holds out (or gets injured on a cheap shot), multiple defensive players suspended for 1/2 or more of the season, other teams taking cheap shots at our players, etc.

This has the POTENTIAL to get really bad. Hoping it doesn't, but it could...

Yeah I wasn't thinking worst case scenario... :doh:

I don't think any of these fears are well-founded, if you listen to the quotes from the players, most of them think this whole thing is ridiculous as well. They know they all do it, even Cam Newton said he thought our guys were cool. If anything they probably feel bad for us. They are still going to come out trying to put Drew Brees in a body bag, and we will still go out there trying to knock out their leaders, that's football, but I don't think there is any more bad blood, all just media hype. I am worried about the refs though, I dunno how they plan on handling this.
