When you get kicked in the balls, a titti-twister just doesn't get as much attention.
Too funny Danno......
God-all is punishing the entire team and that is his way of punishing the owner who couldn't control his rogue team leaders. He is sending a message at all levels.

Well remember the seats for the Dome were already sold out at the time that the "bountygate" story was broken, -- they deliberately waited to announce the investigation or penalties until after the season ticket deadline, so people would NOT have time to cancel...that is why I think the draft picks may mysteriously be given back, because any penalties inflicted on the Saints THIS year, including losing Payton for the whole year, it doesn't really matter to the league or to Benson, because the Dome is already guaranteed sold out including the suites...NEXT year if the Saints are 5-11 and are STILL looking at another year or two of being penalized for this, I think that selling out the Dome will be a real problem.

I think what happens to the penalties may be influenced by what happens on the field and more importantly, at the box office. If the Saints suck and Benson's numbers at Champions Square etc. are way down, you will probably see those draft picks come back pretty quick.

Too funny Danno. Too funny.....

By punishing the entire team God-all is sending a message to all the owners. He will hurt you entire team if you don't follow along. This is all about getting to Benson who couldn't control his rogue team leaders. He's being very methodical about trying to dismantle our team.
However, he doesn't understand the New Orleans mentality. We don't field a 12th man we field 13!!! Who Dat Baby!

What can they do? Sit back & deal with it, IMO ... Goodell took his best shot and the Saints winning the NFC South will be more a testimony to their organization then an indication the punishment wasn't stiff enough ... looking around the league, a lot of lesser teams would buckle if something like this had been levied on them.

I don't see what, if any, feasible deterrence is left for Goodell. If suspending a H/C and GM doesn't get all the team's attention in this matter and cause them to take more personal interest in covering their asses on this sort of stuff , nothing will.
