Is Godells Plan Working?

When the New Orleans Saints disrespected Roger Godhell he took it personally and decided to make the franchise pay. In an unprecedented act of power abuse he went after our coaches, players and our front office.
He has done his best to cripple the organization with the ruthlessness of a Dictator(pronounced Dick taster). His childish vendetta is widely documented now and losing any sense of fair play. He wants to cripple the Saints and have the damage linger for a long time.
Has he succeeded?

Too early to tell. Definitely wounded us though. Anyone else thinking of Johnny U's record and the kommisar having a crush on the old flat top? That would make his main hidden agenda to make certain it's never broken....

Nothing has happened this season that hasn't happened in any other season.

I frikken refuse to believe that, that jackazz can effect our season or is capable of executing a master plan!

Draft picks. Fines (million of dollars). Suspensions. Dismantling the coaching and the front office.

All without any evidence for what he claims. No interest in fair play.

I'd say he's done about all he can do. Time will tell if his vendetta was successful, but I for one think taking Sean Payton away from the Saints organization is bigger than most will allow.

Even if we go 0-16, I won't give Roger the credit of ruining our season...

I can't give him credit for having a coherent plan.

Re: Is Godells Plan Working?

Give it time. They have a world of hurt in store for us yet. Wait 'til we start to get close to the Super Bowl, and the refs step in and start calling Drew for false start, because his head was moving during his hard count.

I've always thought the real point of Goodell's ridiculously overly long and heavy-handed suspensions and penalties was actually to try and make the fans and Benson mad at Payton and Loomis, mad enough to want to fire them or run them out of town, for causing all this crap to reign down upon our heads. Why else would you fine Benson, while at the same time going OUT OF YOUR WAY to say he did nothing wrong? Huh, what? Why take away draft picks, and then say you might give them back if the team cleans up their act and improves their behavior? What the hell does that mean exactly? Is there any other interpretation you can read into it besides "fire Payton and Loomis and we'll talk"?

If it happened, getting Payton and Loomis fired (same with Gregg Williams at the Rams) conveniently rids Goodell of his biggest problem children -- and he already got rid of Michael Ornstein, as part of his efforts to try and break up that old school, rogue element within the league. He wants to tamp down on a certain style of person or personality type, that has been with the NFL since it's earliest days. Payton. Bellichick. Jerry Jones. James Harrison. The "Al Davis type."

But for the moment, that plan to get rid of Payton and Loomis seems to have horribly backfired on Goodell and blown up in his face. We'll see.
