This is even worse
 
All this is is a smoke screen for the rest of the country who hasn't been paying attention as closely as we Saints fans have. The evidence of a bounty still hasn't been presented and nobody has been vindicated. It allows Goodel and the league to say "See we're fair. We brought in an independent party and they corrected our mistake ." Meanwhile our team has still been wrecked, the season ticket holders were still ripped off (the suspensions weren't announced till after the tickets had to be paid for) we were stripped of a second round draft choice and we still had to suffer through this abomination of a season.

I'm glad for the players but I'm even more pissed of now than I was before.

Yup. But if we're lucky there will be some media coverage out there, that makes it look like the league did something wrong with the whole investigation, and portray it that the players have been exonerated, which will make people (and the 31 owners) question the original version of the story, and question Goodell and his handling of it. It ain't over yet.

It's nowhere near over with yet. SaintsBro is right. I'm still holding on to the hope that we get our second pick back. I mean it's not fair to the college players entering the draft to get ripped off an opportunity to play for a great winning organization.

OK, how about a season ticket holders protest at the superbowl.
If nothing else it's a good reason to get together and have a beer.

Especially with the prior fines to other teams being noted in the ruling at $25 K.

I guess GB & NE really helped out with the investigations in '07 & '08.

There is evidence. Our guys basically were let off on technicalities.

Yea because every college player can't wait to play for the train wreck that our organization has become and probably will be for years.

If we're a train wreck, it's because Goodell put dynamite on the tracks.

You would think that this would indeed make the media question the NFL, wouldn't you? But so far, those puppets are buying totally into Tagliabue's worthless "explanation". They're blaming it all on Payton. Fools...
