NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says league not considering modifications to bounty sanctions
 
Denver -- NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Saturday he has not considered an early reinstatement of Sean Payton and that there is no plan to meet with the Saints' coach before his suspension ends Feb. 4. Goodell told an NFL Network reporter he does anticipate there will be a conversation in the near future with Payton but no date has been set.

Goodell also said there has been no discussion internally about returning the Saints' second-round pick in this year's NFL draft, which the league docked as part of the bounty sanctions.

After the bounty appeals hearings in April, Goodell said he would "consider mitigating the financial penalties on the individuals ... (and) modifying the forfeiture of the team's 2013 second-round draft choice" if the club and the players, coaches and administrators "cooperated in future proceedings and participated in the development and implementation of programs to instruct players and coaches at all levels on principles of player safety, fair play, and sportsmanship."

We have not and it would appear we are not (rightfully) going to kneel at Roger's altar. He's not going to lessen anything...

...because he is a douchenozzle.

I fully expect Goodell to fabricate a reason to delay Payton's return!

Sue.

We want to SEE the lack of proof.

Once that happens Goodell's legacy will be set.

I am kind of waiting to see the accusations come up that Sean was secretly communicating with the Saints.

I can bet money it will come.

That will require proof, and we have already seen how Goodell and the league respond to that!!

Goodell got away with crying wolf the first time.

If he says that Payton violated his suspension by having contact with the Saints, he will have to show his proof!
