Per the Twitterverse...

- Sean Payton suspended for a year.
- Mickey Loomis suspended for eight games.
- Joe Vitt suspended for six games.
- Loss of 2nd-round picks in 2012 and 2013.

Plus Gregg Williams is suspended indefinitely.

Damn. I wonder what this means for Drew Brees? (Mia---LOL! JJD you so silly!)

The hammer of Goodell has come down on the Saints.

Boy, did it ever. (espn.go.com)

Sean Payton- 1 year suspension
GM Mickey Loomis- 8 game suspension
Gregg Williams- Indefinite Suspension
Joe Vitt- 6 game suspension, $100k fine.
The Saints as a team- $500k fine, forfeiture of 2012 and 2013 2nd round draft picks.

I thought Payton would get clipped for a few games, but Goodell really decided to send a message here.

It's a little worse than reported because the Patriots have the Saints first round pick.
Sheriff Goodell finally gets to use his shooting irons.

RIP Saints. That's going to be a free agent dead zone this year. Drew Brees is going to love his franchise tag THAT MUCH MORE now.

I feel safe in assuming that we'll never see Gregg Williams again.

What Justin said. I thought a few games for Sean, but this.. Holy Shit! And no pay either, Christ. I never thought I'd see the day the NFL went after someone not in the AFC North this hard. Sucks for those guys, but the message has been sent.

Goodell on ESPN is basically saying Payton lied his ass off about it, and even if he didn't, he should have known about it. The Saints are coming off as total assholes in all of this.

I thought it was weird when the early reports said he knew nothing about this. I think the attempted cover up cost him an extra eight games in the deal. Even then I'm still surprised he is going to miss the year.

All penalties well deserved. At the severity they were punished, they should probably be thankful the Super Bowl victory wasn't in danger of being stripped, since it was certainly tainted.

Drew Brees, now would be a good time to lay low and quit trying to demand an "explanation", especially after Commissioner Goodell came out and said exactly why the punishment was what it was. For being the team leader, to the point that he's a member of the NFLPA's Executive Committee, I find it really hard to believe that he didn't know about this, and if he did know about it, why wouldn't he have done anything about it.

Saints to continue bounty program:

These Saints bounties for good cause
By Brian Murphy

Leveraging national coverage of the pay-for-big-hits scandal that has engulfed the NFL team, the irreverent minor league baseball club is promoting a bounty program this season to raise money for concussion research and treatment, according to media relations director Sean Aronson. An announcement is scheduled for Thursday, March 22.

"Bounty Night" is set for Sept. 1 at Midway Stadium when the Saints play host to the Wichita Wingnuts.

The team will donate $100, $200, $300 and $400 to researchers studying the long-term effects of sports concussions for every Saints player who respectively singles, doubles, triples or homers.

The promotion mimics incentives the New Orleans Saints recently used to enrich defensive players for attacking opponents, a program that prompted the NFL to suspend coach Sean Payton for the entire 2012 season in the most severe penalty among several the league levied Wednesday.

The American Association Saints, who open their 20th season of independent baseball May 7, are renowned for the cheeky and topical promotions backed by owner Mike Veeck.

There was the 2008 bobblehead giveaway featuring dolls with two feet visible beneath a restroom stall, which mocked former Idaho Sen. Larry Craig, who was arrested the year before for soliciting an undercover police officer in a Minneapolis-St. Paul airport bathroom.

In 2003, "Randy Moss Hood Ornament Night" saluted the former Vikings wide receiver who was cited for bumping a Minneapolis traffic cop with his car.
While major league baseball labor negotiations dragged in the summer of 2002, the Saints gave away seat cushions with the faces of Commissioner Bud Selig on one side and players association executive director Donald Fehr on the other.

Saints were bracing for a four-game suspension for Payton

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/03/21/saints-were-bracing-for-a-four-game-suspension-for-payton/


Mike Florio says why Sean Payton's suspenion was considerably more than the Saints expected and also on why Bill Belichick did not receive somethng similar in the Spygate scandal.
