Interesting choice of words...

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; He is giving the players a chance to blame it all on Williams... Thus enabling him to vacate/lower suspensions.... save face by saying "if they had come and told me this from the start it would all have been over ...

Re: Interesting choice of words...

Perverse as it sounds, I also think that the fact that the Saints looked like doo-doo on Sunday, kind of proves the popular perception that Goodell went way overboard on the punishment in this thing. Because what we had to sit through and endure in the Dome on Sunday was definitely punishing the longtime paying fans, making them suffer for something that wasn't ever proven and that the fans had nothing to do with anyway in the first place.

Bring Vitt back now, Payton in week 6. Reduce player suspensions in half....deal! (yeah right?!)

Oh and Saintsbro, I thought the same thing. In some perverse way, my brain was hoping that Sunday's debacle might help our cause!!

Re: Interesting choice of words...

As much as I want to hope, I just don't see ol' roger dodger giving any leeway on the coaches suspensions.

One of the above posts made reference to 'giving them a chance to blame it on greggggggggggggggg' and that may help the players, but it helps the coaches not at all. As much as I hate to admit it (through clenched teeth) we have to accept the fact that there is no way rog lets Payton or another coach off early. MAYBE Loomis. He'll give the players a lighter sentence, wag his finger at them, and then blame the coaches even more himself, 9 or 99 testimonies under oath or not.

I'm reminded of the old Ren and Stimpy cartoons- "No sir! I don't like it!"

He is still fishing for evidence AFTER the suspensions were handed out! No, I don't just trust him to produce any evidence either!!!!

Not a wise move in my opinion. Gives Hoodell the chance to pull a he said he said.... Claim conflicting stories from Vilma vs the other three...

The Bounty Four should me there Monday en mass.
