New Orleans Saints get aerial reminder of Sean Payton
 
1 Attachment(s)
Other than that terrifying banner hanging inside their practice bubble (DO YOUR JOB!), Sean Payton exists mostly as a memory for the New Orleans Saints these days.

The coach will be back, though it's unlikely to happen until 2013. The Saints have marched on, but they were reminded of their exiled leader during practice on Wednesday, when a plane flew over the field pulling a banner that read, "FREE PAYTON."
"It's creative," Drew Brees said, via The Associated Press. "I want to know who did it."
Ever the populist, Brees indicated he'd be comfortable helping sponsor more public protest messages "if it's a legal and funny thing like that."
This guy's going to be president one day.

Saints fans really are the best fans in the NFL. If I were a player, NOLA would be a destination site for sure. Of course, Drew Brees being here wouldn't hurt much either.

Ok so....

How about instead of flying one over the practice field, we all chip in and fly one over 280 Park Avenue New York NY 10017.

I'd chip in for that.

I heard something about a big poster or picture of Payton above the locker room that says "Do your job!" I think as a team this is being handled very well.

This is the website of the organization that is responsible for this:
Free Sean Payton - Join the Air Campaign

Starting August 15'th we will be initiating our indefinite air campaign in support of Sean Payton and the New Orleans Saints who have been wrongfully persecuted by the National Football League.
We demand that the suspension of Sean Payton be immediately reversed and the sanctions against the Saints organization be dropped.

I read yesterday that there are discussions of a flyover for 280 Park Avenue New York NY 10017

Nice of the NFL to refer to the Sean Payton banner as "terrifying" in their article - not one other article has stated anything like this.

I hate them.
