Payton Appeals

Sean Payton will appeal his suspension today, according to a league source.

The coach is also expected to seek guidance on amount of time he will have to prepare his appeal, and attempt to obtain the full reports from NFL Security regarding the bounty evidence against him.

Payton had until April 2 to appeal. Commissioner Roger Goodell made it clear in remarks to the media the appeals process will be expedited and sources said its unlikely to last more than a week or so.

I doubt anything positive comes out of this, but whatever.

All the heat Goodell is feeling from the fans may sway his decision

At least it buys us some more time for planning purposes.

Yeah, I agree- can't hurt and it does buy us a little more time- I doubt anything will change, but it never hurts to try.

This does no good, we all know this. He's appealing to the d*** who put the suspension in place. Just b.s. all the way around, and yes it sucks for us. Lets just move on from this crap.

No way. With all the heat (yes, thats valid) that the fanbase and some of the media is creating against him, BUT ALSO the fact that Parcells is in the mix now showing more promise than Goodell thought we could muster... I bet he's likely to chop his suspension in half or more JUST SO we don't hire an interim and we let Carmichael do it or something. That way he wins on both sides. With the fans (even though we all will still hate him with the fire of a thousand suns) and with the hope that our season will be ruined or greatly affected at least by leaving us "leaderless" for a period of 6-10 weeks.

As others have said, this buys us more time and nothing else....

I completely agree with this even though nothing will change. I feel this way (more or less) for two reasons:

1) EFF you Goodell.
2) Oh yeah, EFF you Goodell.
