Other than getting an all-expense paid trip to New Orleans for a few days, why bother going to a job interview that you know you aren't going to get?

When there is an announcement that a minority coach candidate is in New Orleans for an interview, that will be all the confirmation we need that Parcells is going to coach the Saints!
One wonders why we're being held to the Rooney rule anyway. Payton is under contract and this is an interim position.

Exactly. I can't see the rule applying here. It's an interim position, I don't ever remember any other team having to interview minority candidates for temporary positions??

I can't believe this is even happening! The Big Tuna in Nola to coach for a year??? I tell you one thing, I doubt we see many threads on the forum this year about why The Saints aren't getting any media coverage, that's for sure!!

This is perfect We get a HOF coach to maybe tighten up the team even more. Parcels is ruthless and a players coach. He will tighten some bolts and screws to make it even a better team,and maybe like it here to help out more next season. Payton gets some time to reflect and make new plays.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Tuna was also doing it to slap Baddel in the face for picking on one of his guys.
If we win the Super Bowl with the tuna its a slap in the face of the NFL.
If we beat the falcon 2x again, we can say, you can't even beat us without payton.
This is like getting Stephen Hawking to sub for your physics class,lol

Now that it is a BIG POSSIBILITY that Bill could be coaching the saints i truly think Goodell gonna amend his ruling to 8 games or less to persuade Bill from accepting head coach.

Im sure he will. Ive thought of that. He's so dumb he doesn't understand that puts parcels and payton on the same team for the playoffs. Not a bright move, not sure there has been a better fit. Im sure payton would sub as OC for Bill without ego.

Maybe they will just use the consultant thing. For me If I was payton I would not appeal. Screw Goodell and bring in the Big tuna make a run and take it all this year. Our team is going to come out pissed for the way Goodell handeled this and his obvious discrimination againts the Saints. Bounty is a theme he created and i hope it comes back to haunt Him. The players association should do their own investigation and refute him on what other teams were doing on their programs and make it public. Maybe popular opinion would shift and we can be done with this guy. I will buy nothing that has the NFL logo on it except something from the Saints in protest.
