The NFL asked Payton back in 2010 if he knew anything about the bounties when they first told the Saints to stop it. Payton said he didn't know anything about them and supposedly tried to cover it all up. As did Loomis, Vitt, and Williams

All I ever got from reading the stuff was that Goodell wasn't satisfied that Sean did enough to stop the program.

C'mon man... enough. Sean lied his ass off for a long time and denied the bounty program. Then he admitted that he lied.

I don't think so. I think he admitted to being ultimately responsible.

I don't think that Payton ever admitted to lying; Goodell supposedly found evidence in all the paperwork that linked Payton to the bounties.

Payton taking responsibility as the head coach is not the same thing as admitting to lying

You're splitting hairs here guys. He said they would end the bounty program and they didn't. Then he admitted that to Goodell. Hasn't it already been made pretty clear that Payton and Loomis lied to Benson. Let it go.

The hell we are. Find me a quote where Sean admits it to Goodell. I apologize in advance if you can find it, but I haven't seen that.

Now, I've read a lot of writers saying as much, but that's hardly proof that Sean lied to Goodell. Greg Williams lied and acknowledged it. Vitt did too. I've yet to read anything of the sort related to Sean.

According to the leagues report, Goodell is hacked off at Sean for making "a cursory attempt" to stop it. To me, that means Roger doesn't think Sean did enough. Please let me know if you have more information.

exactly what i thought...no one knows if he lied for a fact. all i knew was that he didnt do enough to stop it
