On the other hand, does anybody really thinks that Payton spends that year in Cancun on the beach, drinking cocktails and just sit and wait until the year is over? NO WAY!!! I am pretty sure that he has his ear and his eyes right by the team and always exactly knows what is going on. It does not matter who stands on the sideline acting as coach. I guess Payton does it all in the backround. Anybody disagreeing?
Unfortunately, Sean Payton cannot have anything to do with the Saints for his year in exile, as per the orders of King Roger Goodell, the autonomous dictator commissioner of the NFL. I'm sure Payton will have his eye on his team.

I didn't talk about officially.....

It is not good if one person has too much power in a position like Goodell does. But it seems like this is a world-wide problem, same thing happenend in soccer -> Sepp Blatter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Not exactly true; I haven't seen anything saying 1-1-2013 Payton can return to the Saints.

Payton's return is based solely on if Goodell thinks Payton has 'learned' his lesson.

Payton returns the day after the Superbowl, per NFL rules

No way! That would be too much of power for one person!


Somewhere over the rainbow!

Unfortunately it's true -- originally the suspension was specified as being until exactly the day after the Super Bowl, but then Goodell changed the punishment for Payton, so now at the end of the season Payton must "apply" to Goodell to be re-instated. Goodell basically moved the goalposts after initially handing down the original suspension to Payton, mainly to keep him quiet in the press.

I think 5 preseason games is a plus this year. Offensively and defensively. Simplify the substitutions and let Brees handle alot of the playcalling. Running 5 and 6 people in and out every play isn't necessary.

I believe you guys (jcp and 656) but we need to get a link and make another thread on this foolishness.
Somehow I missed this in the shuffle. Now I'm more ticked off than EVER!

Dam you mean 1 year and a loss of pay is not enough. Insane Goodell. You have way to much power.
