Payton's Wiki Page

Fellow WhoDats, I'd like an assist, if I can.

I'm not very 'puter savvy, but I understand that Wikipedia can be amended/edited by anyone.

Sean Payton's Wiki page had definitely got an anti Saints skew to it, but I have no idea how to change it. Would someone else care to give it a shot?

For example:

Quote:
On March 21, 2012, Payton was suspended for the entire 2012 NFL season, originally set to take effect April 1, 2012, as a result of his involvement in the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal, under which "bounties" were paid for interceptions, forced fumbles and contact that would "knock out" targeted players on opposing teams.[1] Payton filed an appeal of his suspension with the league the Friday before it was set to take effect. On April 9, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell denied his appeal; his suspension began on April 16.[2]
Quote:
the Saints implemented a bounty program which rewarded players for deliberately attempting to knock opposing players out of games. The slush fund was administered by defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who joined the team in 2009. An extensive league investigation found that Payton was complicit in the scheme. Payton even went as far as to orchestrate a cover-up when the league first investigated it in the 2009-10 offseason. When informed that the league was investigating reports of a bounty program, Payton met with Williams and assistant head coach Joe Vitt and told them, "Let's make sure our ducks are in a row."[21]
Nowhere is found the word "allegedly" or "it is believed", etc. Given the "evidence" provided the players yesterday, I'm thinking a rewrite is definitely in order.

Glad you brought this to our attention. I don't know how to do it either but I'll try to figure it out.

I'm on my phone, but it's quite easy. There is a tab at the top of the page, I believe, that says "Edit" just click that and it brings up the text of the article in an editable format.

Quote:
He was also a member of the Chicago Bears squad of strikebreaking replacement players, known as the "Spare Bears", during the 1987 NFL players strike.[8] In 3 games he completed 8 of 23 passes (34.8%), for 79 yards, 0 TDs, and 1 INT, a passer rating of 7.3. He was also sacked 7 times for 47 yards and had one rush attempt for 28 yards. Coincidentally, his one interception came against the New Orleans Saints, the team he would later go on to coach to a Super Bowl.
If this is true....

A "must read" for any Saints fan, IMHO. I'd recommend you move it up your list. It really is very, very good and a very worthy read.

My opinion, anyway.

I did a quick edit. Just added the word alleged and that Payton denies any such program existed.

You're welcome.

I couldn't agree more with you, kooldak. In fact, I liked it so much I blogged about it here if anyone is interested:
