It really has been fascinating to watch the flames climb on this New Orleans Saints story, the emperor of a very violent business feeding a howling and eager media one crumb at a time, keeping this dirty story in front of the eyes of his customers for more than a month now. You remember how NFL commissioner Roger Goodell became famous, right? For unprecedented penalties against players who dared to bring bad publicity for extended periods upon the league’s shield. That’s what he calls it, the shield. He did not want arrests and negativity in front of his paying customers in the news cycle, staining his shield, so he’d come down on misbehavior from repeat offenders with a punitive fury previously unseen in major American sports.

Finally, the press catches on. This was obvious from the beginning, and the Saints drew the short straw because.....small market, or the leagues help after Katrina. Pick your reason. It is made more obvious when Buffalo and Washington were found not to have "bounty" programs after players stated that they certainly did have "bounty" programs.

This really fries me, but this what being a Saints fan is all about.
