Re: Michael Thomas will miss Week 5 matchup with Chargers due to disciplinary issue

Update: NFL Networkís Tom Pelissero reported that Thomas punched second-year safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson.
This was confirmed by Nick Underhill for NewOrleans.Football, who reported that Thomas and Gardner-Johnson were also involved in a fight early last season. Both players got physical at an Aug. 20 training camp practice.

IMO this is conditionally accepted in training camp (light fires!) not in regular season practice.

This a 2-2 team. They need a fire lit.

Go for it. You were off base with all of your "assumptions" that you just posted.

Have a nice day!!

Oh, and, Who Dat!!

Not a single thing I just pointed out was an assumption. These are facts. As usual, you're dead wrong, and can't admit it. Have a nice day.

Plus one. There likely were some borderline, non addressable behavour transgressions, where Sean wasn't happy with what he was seeing and this conflict presented an opportunity for a teachable moment...

At least that's what I expect the language around this incident to reflect...

Letís see how MT responses, if you hear mumbling on he wants to be traded. Then we got ourselves a pure D I V A, if he learns from this we have a TEAM first all pro back

Sports Illustrated really needs somebody competent to run the Saints Fandom page - guess you get for what you pay...

Seems like this has been a feud thats been going on since last season.
