All they do is fine you if you don't make yourself available for media...If I was Benson I would tell all players and coaches to refuse any interviews and he'll foot the bill for any fines this season. F@#$ the media....

I'd like to know how in the hell Peter King considers himself a journalist when his job is to make predictions... Ponder that for a second; it's his JOB to make PREDICTIONS. When did predicting what team will win the Super Bowl become journalism?!

Do not forget that the word is that Goodell put a "gag order" on the front office personnel disciplined in this case. I know, he has denied that, but several sources have said that is what they were told.

But, why would Goodell lie? Easy! Because it comes so easy.

The player contract may state they have to make themselves available to the media, but does not state they have to give them any information.

An agreement by the players and coaches to give them a "No Comment" or "That's a good question, but I have no response", or just plain slience (just stare back at them). would satisfy the "available to media" requirement".

The clause states they have to "be available to the media", not have to speak to the media. The right to Free Speech also includes the right NOT TO SPEAK.

That non-act would do more than any other action(s) by the players, coaches, and organization.

An Optimist sees the big picture and views obstacles as temporary hurdles

If Drew Brees call you a dick, you're definitely a dick.

Acceptable Q&A

How are you today? "Fine"
How have practices gone so far: "fine"
How difficult will it be to play with out your head coach this season?
"I refuse to glamorize or speculate on what has transpired this off season or what may come of the future so that entertainment columnists have something to put into their daily blogs that are framed as journalism."


"I had bacon for breakfast if you are interested.... not exciting enough for you?"

He is on Dan Patrick this morning sounding contrite, like a girl who just got dumped before the prom.
He did say he believes there was definitely a pay for performance program in place,but that the Vilma bounty situation is a gray area. Vilma loses $5 mill and a year of his life in a gray area?[/QUOTE]

If he believes there was a pay for performance system in place how could Vilma's situation be a grey area? He can't have it both ways, either there was a pay for performance system or a bounty system in place. He needs to make up his mind.

"Believes"- he just can not stay away from speculation can he?

Assumption - We give a flying fk what he "believes".

Nothing new or interesting will come out about Bounty-Gate.... And it seems that all questions will subsequently end up with "how are yall fairing with out Payton?"

No more speculation, talk to us in week 20 and ask so what were the most difficult hurdles to overcome in going 19-0 with out your head coach.
No....I changed my mind .... grant them ... just say... NO COMMENT ..! Next!?

Let's keep the chip on our shoulder until we are 19 and EAUX!

Ok i am with that.... not fond of "no comment".

a hearty "F-U!" instead?

Come again?

F-U!


I can see the articles now: I have recently created a pie chart that will explain the replies from all of the new Orleans Saints to reporters.
