Exclamation Report: Saints owner will sue the NFL if Sean Payton signs with the Cowboys

According to ESPNís Ed Werder, New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson plans on suing the NFL for millions of dollars if head coach Sean Payton is allowed to leave and sign with the Cowboys.

Ed Werder @Edwerderespn Very good source tells me that Saints owner Tom Benson would sue league for millions if Sean Payton allowed to leave for Dallas or elsewhere

Payton signed a new contract last season with the Saints, but the NFL voided it because of language in the contract that they werenít happy with.

Iím not sure how Benson can sue the league and win when the NFL has the right to void any contracts they want.

Exactly. What's the point of a contract if they can pick and choose which ones they want to follow. That's not how it works.

I think this has more to do with him being able to be a FA even though he was suspended, without pay for the 2012 season. I think Benson wants SP's last year of the original contract, not the extension that was voided, tolled to 2013. Which I think is only fair. I think any other owner would try to do the same.

Benson did his homework. It took a while for this to develop which says he and team Benson think they have a strong case.

Go Benson!!!!!
Good for him!!!
All of the bounty stuff, well, I know he is a good business man and I guess his hands were tied and he sort to or had to let it work itself out.
He seemed so silent.

As some you have said, it seems , perhaps breaking this mans's team, Benson that is, was a goal here.


Good for Benson !!!!!!

Something is fishy that it took that long for the league to reject it in the first place.

The NFL is really trying to strong arm the little ole southern city. Could any one believe that they would ever have brought this bounty crap on the giants or the jets of NEW YORK CITY. Bullchit

Sports contracts mean jack nowadays.

How many times have we seen players hold out for a new contract midway through the contract their current contract?
