Personally I'm thinking I might just start liking this. Badaz Saints instead of "those lovable baffoons". SB winners instead of perinial losers. Screwdriver anyone who wants to take on our Saints! Let's take the medicine we have coming, but I say keep the rep that makes all other teams hesitate that one second!

This is just more of the NFL being two faced and everyone in the League knows it.

Those same old school players are probably laughing about this. By all means, try to make it safe but it still has to be football.

If we have a few less fringe fans after this then good; it helps to know who the real ones are.

We aren't going to get the “Gentlest Team” award – good.

I know that we have great players that are great people and they went out and played the game the same way it is played everywhere the way they all play it since they are kids.

I know that they played aggressive but they played in front of the same officials that all of their opponents did.

It’s us against the World again. No problems.

I'm only worried about the hits they'll take to this year's draft. They need all their picks this year to help supplement the Free Agency hit they're taking... I firmly believe (not as a blind fan but as a football watcher) that they could conceivably win another superbowl this year. And after that... who will really remember all of this "bounty" talk?

We're a resilient bunch. No matter what happens, as long as there's Saints football in New Orleans I will never stop cheering for the team.

I've been and am here to stay.

I went to work today, called some friends, worked in the yard, played with my kids, and I STILL DON'T CARE. Games were played on the field, and penalties for vilating rules have already been assessed by the refs.

Exactly this!!!.....................Maybe the thug rap will make other teams think a bit more than they should and hesitate that one split second that it will take for Chris Ivory to run over them like a Ford over a rooster!!

This sort of thing has been going on since the beginning of football and will not end here. If anything it will make teams be a little more careful and quiet about it.

It's like people are thinking that the Saints invented this or something and if they want to believe that then let their ignorance show it's true colors!!


I AM AND ALWAYS HAVE BEEN AND ALWAYS WILL BE A WHODAT FAN SO THE REST OF THE LEAGUE AND ALL THEIR FANS CAN GO AND TAKE A FLYING LEAP AT A ROLLING DONUT!!!

I love the righteous indignation from other teams' fans, especially Vikings fans still bitter after their NFCCG loss (you see these in comment sections after news stories). They are so happy with this news. But this will blow over (even if the league decides to make an example of us), and they can go back to their querulous ways. We will be able to laugh at them again

Well said OP. I think the punishment, whatever it will end up being, will be ridiculously out of proportion with the 'crime'. The media coverage resembles a cage full of chimps after someone threw in a peanut - monkey rage. In the end, it's something that you see at all levels of football, in one form or another. Who knows what the actual details are but punishing someone so much they quit or are forced out of the game is the physical domination every football player strives for, or certainly in those positions where there is alot of contact.

I think fines for some of the main culprits and for the organisation is reasonable. Gregg Williams should probably be the only one who faces suspension. That should maybe result in the practice being curtailed around the league.

All the talk of tarnished titles, cheating and all that are just ridiculous. Sadly, Goodell will probably be influenced by the media's reaction.

This whole thing will die after the league issues their "decision" from on high like some gods handing down punishment to us mere mortals. I really don't care about it anymore. At least the disgruntled fans and players will finally get their pound of flesh and that'll be it.

What can you do? We, the fans, didn't do anything. Nearly every player in the league is saying, Duh. Loomis can't draft worth a crap anyways. Take the lumps and move on. It seems the biggest proponent has already skipped town and it wasn't that big of a loss. Patriots have "Spy Gate". The Steelers have their "Phantom" touchdown that beat the Seahawks. And now we had some nimrod trying to twist sore ankles. When you get big and cause a lot of butthurt tears - you get some hate.

Some have speculated that this happened all because New Orleans denied the media darling Favre a shot at the Super Bowl.
If that's the case, then it's hilarious and impressive that we angered them on this level.

Now when's Drew gonna sign that contract?
Your comment that "this is not the worst thing a team could have done" got me thinking.... what is the worst thing a team can do? When it comes to ethics, can you think of something a team has done that is worse than this? I know other teams do it but we are now the official face of it. I personally don't think it is a huge deal, but as far as public perception it has to rank pretty darn high. This is probably the biggest professional football story to come out in a long long time.
