There is some nonsense in that article. It’s obvious she doesn’t understand the area and where the brewery is actually located.

But I have to say I was surprised to learn they were going to be meeting everyday in the same place over the next two weeks while the entire state is under a stay at home order.

I’ve heard Sean and Mickey talk on this and they haven’t convinced me this is something that can’t be done on a daily conference/video conference call.

When I heard the brewery thing my thought was it’s fine if you bring in beds and they all stay there between now and the draft. But it sounds like they’re commuting. It is possible one of them (not Payton) could catch it, give it to the rest of them, then they all go home and infect their families.

As a Saints fan I’m good with it if it helps us in the draft. But just as a person on day 11 at home on furlough because of a statewide order when the problem is five hours south of me, I can understand why the decision would be controversial.

As we would say in the late 70's...... "Buuuuuurrrrrrnnnnnn"
In the late 80's..... "Sizzzzzzlllleee"
In the late 90's... "Drrooooovvve" LOLOLOL..
As I always like to say, "SP took Nancy out to lunch, and made HER pay for it, including the tip...."
She probably had on the wrong heels anyway...... :) Ode to Mike Bell...

As soon as I read headline, I said to myself, “Nancy Armour.”
This lady like Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report writes nothing but columns blasting people. At least she giver her own opinion, albeit uninformed and a lot of the times idiotic. Freeman, who got caught plagiarizing years ago, couches these kind of columns in anonymous sources.

"You can’t tell me that Saints fans won’t decide to take a casual stroll past the Dixie Brewery in hopes of getting a glimpse of Payton or general manager Mickey Loomis"

Yeah, let's hop in a car and take a 30+ drive to the East to casually walk past a beer factory that is situated in the middle of nowhere with no surrounding buildings, behind a gated fence with a 200+ foot walk from the gate to the building, a building that undoubtedly will have security surrounding it on those days, and even if we were lucky enough to slip through all of that and get to the brewery itself for the casual stroll past it, the building is so big that we probably would not be able to see what we're trying to see anyway.

Sounds like a great time.

If you don't already realize this site is horrible, be sure to avoid it in the future.

I edited this to a screenshot so no one would click the article link. Do not give them the traffic.

Glad to see CSP set her straight. That opinion writer is a well-known hack. Nothing surprises me anymore coming from our media these days, Covid19 notwithstanding.

if i was to hazard a guess, SP/ML would not want to teleconference this stuff since i imagine zoom meetings are fairly easy to hack
i would be 0% surprised if each and every team has someone scouring other teams' cyberwhatzit to eaves drop on draft prep, et al

I don't believe for a second that an NFL team can't afford a secure video conference. I do believe that NFL coaches and GMs are paranoid and set in their ways.

If they feel it has to be done in person the way to do it is rent out a floor of a hotel with conference rooms and nobody leaves until after the draft.
