With all we went through with bountygate, do you guys think there will be anything done about this... definitely appears to be something old Roger would use the "detrimental to the league" angle for this situation for having hits out on players...thoughts

OBJ nor Norman wear the black and gold, so probably nothing will be done.

In 2012, the year our team was actually serving punishments for bountygate, the Jets said they were going to injure Reggie Bush, injured Reggie Bush, and then bragged about injuring him. If Goodell didn't do anything then, when the bounty thing was still a fresh news story, he's certainly not going to do anything about it now.

The Saints were a sacrifice to appease the class action lawsuit. It was a personnel vendetta that Roger Goodell was visualizing against the Saints, and specifically Sean Payton. It was never impartial to begin with which is why he ended up recusing himself for Tagliabue.

The problem is the majority of NFL fans never had the attention span to follow the story beyond the initial headlines. Also, hearing the reality of the scandal didn't jive with the whole "derp, the Saints are good so **** them!" mindset many had developed. You don't get haters until you're good, after all.

This is purely for discussion, nothing will come out of it besides grief.

This +1...excellent synopsis!

Interesting... so why are Payton and the Saints so tight with Belichick and the Patriots who evidently have a much better relationship with Goodell? Why does Roger love them but hate us?

I think there is some kinship with Payton and Bilichick due to both having been screwed over by Goodell before.

I do think it's worth noting though that the Patrtiots have gotten only slaps on the wrist compared to what happened to the Saints. The Saints' scandal was far more dubious (at best) than what the Patrtios may have done, too.

It's Kraft and Goodell who were once tied at the hip. Not Belichick.

Payton and Belichick have a relationship because of coaching connections.

The other day I was watching "America's Game" for our 2009 Saints. If you listen to the narration, then you would've swore that thing was put together after the Bountygate scandal. It first aired in August of 2010.
