He can't go to an NFL game. He isn't just suspended from Saints games, but all games. I really question the constitutionality of a suspension that also limits his ability to get another job. Obvious he will not be working for the NFL network or fox

Listening to 870 on the way home, they had Mortenson on it and he was saying that he can't go to ANY (Pro or College) games. No THIRD party contact.

If it comes to something to do with football, he is on house arrest basically.

Does he have time to participate in a season of Survivor Cocodrie?

Does that include Canadian Football? That's what I'd do, go scout talent in another league or coach. I'm sure though he can't do that either.

How is it that he can not attend a College Game?

Did the NFL cancel his subscription to his DirecTV NFL package also?

I hate to go all Tin Foil Hat with this, but if you ask me, I feel like this is all a SET UP so they can BUST Payton for some other infraction, and tack on EXTRA to his suspension...

He can't have contact with the team, okay -- what about a phone call congratulating Drew Brees on beating Johnny Unitas' record when that happens, for instance. Is that allowed? Do they then cross reference the call by dragging in Drew to the league offices and interviewing him, asking if Payton talked about game plans or anything else? What if someone like Jeremy Shockey calls him out of the blue? He can't pick up? It's just crazy.

This whole thing is designed to set up an untenable, unsustainable position for Payton, with such ticky-tacky enforcement that it can't help but be broken. They are playing GOTCHA with him.

I mean fer crying out loud, Payton's got a beach house just down the beach from Loomis in Florida... is he not allowed to go jogging there, while they're both suspended, in case he sees Loomis on his porch and waves at him? OF COURSE they're going to go to dinner together, get together and talk, watch a game together, or do something, and IT'S A TRAP!

And the Commissioner will nail Payton on something vague and unspecified, like that, and say he "broke his suspension" with "unauthorized contact," and then Goodell will not want to reinstate Payton after the year is up.

That's why they mysteriously changed Payton's suspension from a originally a finite year to "he can reapply in a year to maybe be reinstated."

I'm in tin foil hat agony over this, I don't like being this way, but it is REALLY starting to look to me, like a personal vendetta by Goodell against Sean Payton, and a whip-cracking, "when I say jump, you say how high" taskmaster type of thing. To try and get rid of him.
