Payton takes good first step

PALM BEACH, Fla. - The Saints got into the bounty mess because their leaders exhibited off-the-charts arrogance and the kind of bulletproof mentality that is usually reserved for actual NFL players - and teenagers.





But in the first public steps for the franchise since it was slapped with unprecedented punishment by the NFL, Sean Payton appeared to be a changed coach.


He could have been defiant. Instead, he was contrite.


“You’re disappointed,’’ Payton said Tuesday at the NFL meetings when asked about his season-long suspension. “You’re disappointed in yourself that it got to this point, and I think we’re trained as coaches to begin preparation right away. I find myself reflecting on it, and you go through a lot of emotions.’’


He could have deflected the tough questions. Instead, he hit them head-on.

"A Veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount of "up to and including my life."
