It's not like I don't believe you, Chris, but I haven't seen where it was a "sucker punch". I saw a tweet where someone said they bet it was a "sucker punch", but just looking for something verifiable. Where did you hear it and what was their source. Just looking for the truth.

That said, as long as Thomas helps us win he can sucker punch Mother Theresa.

This is all I can find after an hour searching ...

WTF does that have to do with anything?

I recall a WR from Carolina who routinely killed the Saints "Sucker Punching" a couple of times. Didn't hurt his career.

Gardner-Johnson would kick MT's arse!

Nice set-up.

Ready for the PUNCH line?

Being a WR did he throw a HOOK or CROSS when it was GO time? Was he afraid to go to the MIDDLE? Did he land any punches to the BACK SHOULDER? Makes you wonder if we'll ever get his SLANT on the bout or will it all just FADE away?

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

Latest news from Saints Beats Reporters;

Thomas wasn't suspended for the punch alone, he then got into a heated argument with Payton.

We've seen this movie before, if MT doesn't grow up soon he'll be on another team promising to destroy us over twitter all season.

This team will look very different next year.
