It's big for me. He doesn't represent Payton or the Saints as a team but acknowledged that not only were the players hosed, the coaches and the organization were as well.

He has seen all of the evidence. None of the documentation has been, and will probably never be, available to the public because it will show the obvious flaws in what the NFL has done to the Saints.

The NFL should be forced to produce it's proof.

Hey I'm with you - anything positive directed towards the Saints regarding this issue is good. But although he doesnt represent Payton or the Saints carte blanche, the NFLPA had already stated that they didn't approve of Goodell's harsh sanctions and punishments, so I'm not surprised that Smith came out and said this. I'd prefer something similar to be said by the NFL, but like I said, that'll never happen until maybe Goodell is gone.

Bite me Roger! I know that you are too big of an egotistical arse hole to do the right thing. I hope that when you die you are alone and wishing you had done things differently.
I don't want him dead now..........I want him to have to stick around while he gets picked apart.

No, not dead yet, but maybe he can get some painful fungus that will rot away his manhood.

Re: ESPN's First Take 01-08-12

I like the fact that people are saying the coaches were wronged. But again the damage has already been done. People that don't even watch football were calling the Saints cheaters...
New England are cheaters...
Alledged Bounty Programs are just dirty
Pay for performance Salary cap issues
See the difference?
I didn't like the headlines I've seen about how we had to cheat to win and thats simply not the case. The damage done can NEVER be fixed. Roger Goodell job won't even help but it's a start.

The more Goodell is held accountable for the damage done to the Saints the better for us. Although nothing can replace the opportunity missed with the saints and a superbowl in the Dome this year.

" Damage has already been done. NOTHING can ever give us back our season."

Fire Goodell.

As much as I'd like and want that to happen it still doesn't give us back our season. Bottom line is we can never be fully compensated for this past year.

I've never been a huge fan of "media bias" theories that people use to discard facts they don't want to hear, but I'm willing to make an exception and say that ESPN in big time in the tank with the league.
Perhaps if ESPN didn't broadcast NFL games we'd get to see the whole interview. There was less than a half minute left of that interview and the host of the show was quick to thank Smith and go to commercials.

Sorry for the false advertizing. I tried to warn everyone that I couldn't find the rest of the interview.
