Which Saints fan?
 
Saints fans still coming to terms with Sean Payton's severe punishment for bounty program - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

not me

I'm over it!

Loomis is handling this offseason pretty damn well so far. And even if Parcells doesn't coach this year, I think Carmichael/Spags/Kromar can handle the duties until week 7 when we get Vitt back...

I'm over it. It sucks but we'll be fine. Typical sensationalist journalism. I blame it on the ESPTMZ culture of sports news.

CheramieIII 03-30-2012 08:21 PM

we'll still beat the crap out of most of the teams we play. next story

Halo 03-30-2012 09:51 PM

Actually I was hoping they did NOT appeal so we can get past it! Just another week of knock down drag out drama!

ChrisXVI 03-30-2012 09:54 PM

Well, appealing is actually a smart decision. It's not about trying to lessen suspensions or anything like that, it's about delaying them so that Payton can still do work for a few more weeks. He'll still be suspended for the season, but at least he can get a little more work done.

Negative on the few weeks part. Goodell has already said he will expedite his ruling. Shouldn't take more than a week according to him

Yes, Premier Goddell is acting swiftly.

What's the best that we can hope for?
I don't think anyone cares about the 500K, and the Vitt loss is big, but manageable.
I don't see us getiing the picks back.
That leaves Payton -reduced to 8 games, and Loomis, reduced to 6

|Mitch| 04-01-2012 04:15 PM

I don't think that any of the penalties will be reduced; I see it as forcing Goodell to explain himself just a little bit more.

Kind of like the NFLPA; "you have evidence, then show it"

Yeah, let's see how much time he's going to take to reconsider his own decision? None. He probably already has his response written and is adding more penalties for not bowing out.
There's a flaw in his justice system.:brood:
