Of course there was something to rant about. If there weren't, he wouldn't have apologized and re-canted some of the things he said. The dust needs to settle around him too.

ESPN.com Tuesday that he wasn’t feeling happy or secure with seeing so many teammates shipped out of town over the past two years. And he vowed, “I will be a distraction if they can’t do that for me, period."
Keenan Lewis isn't above criticism.

Exactly..its not like he just said one little thing and it got over blown. No..he said several different things at different times..so I'll stand by my original statement..Sounds like someone got put in check!

Re: Keenan Lewis

I'm sure behind close doors Payton lit his *** up about what and what not to put out on social media before the apology

Re: Keenan Lewis

Keenan went waaay off the reservation and he (and maybe agent) thought they could rattle the tree...

Only problem was he found out who the Man really is and it backfired in his face...

Guy is a great competitor and plays with passion, I get that, applaud that...

But you never, N-E-V-E-R, air your in-house grievances or contract dissatisfaction via any media, especially Twitter, thinking you'll force Coach Payton's hand...

You man up, geaux into his office and keep the discussion localized without any public displays or disrespect nor insubordination - especially when you're asking the man to give you more money...

Exactly where did he ever ask "the man" for more money? He said guarantees, not more money, because he didn't want to leave New Orleans. He is a young kid afraid that his dream could come crashing down around him. If he was in it for the money he would never have come here in the first place.

Re: Keenan Lewis

Oh, and watch the "reservation" comments. My Shawnee and Blackfoot blood boils a bit at times.

Well I'm Cherokee and Sioux so you could shove the political correctness and self-righteousness...

Papz, we've gone at it a few times, but you slammed it home on that post...

We can all agree that we'll all disagree...

But this political correct policing that we aren't suppose to come on this site and have free speech and voice criticisms and concerns is bullshinski...

Keenan pulled some real BS taking to twitter like he did...

He has the right to say what he wants, but he better be ready for the consequences...

And if you think that when adversaries or people when in negotiations don't take notice of that, or further...

That is could compromise an ongoing contract negotiation to make the Saints better...

That conduct could be detrimental to the team...

IDK, asking to guarantee money/change your contract is akin to asking for "more money", IMO. Guy gets what he deserves from the fans, also IMO. What's probably most insulting is how he tried to brush it off with the "leaving was never an option" statement ... just own it & say "I'm sorry". People make mistakes, the fans aren't stupid and will forgive. A lot of these guys should just stay away from social media & focus on playing ball, again IMO. Hopefully KL learned a valuable lesson, #shrug.

Proud Irish/Ukrainian here ... Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone, .
