    #Saints also losing second round draft picks in 2012 and 2013.

    Further punishment or will that suffice?

    Twitter

    Saints lost two second-round picks, one in 12 one in 13.

    No ones?

    But wow, Peyton suspended a year..

    Prepare for the onslaught of comparisons to spygate, and somehow spygate will trump all of this for some idiotic reason..

    Gives fodder to the mediots on ESPN, NFLN and all of the sports yakkers...

    Wow! It's too bad we have the Saints first this year and not next year(assuming the NFL wouldn't have taken that away since it would've been ours). Gonna be a rough season for them IMO

    The is really harsh, much more than I would have suspected. All we're going to hear about now is how Belichick didnt get suspended.

    There needs to be draft picks.

    Fines and suspensions hurt individual people, draft picks directly punish the organization.

    A year for Payton?


    I presume thats him gone from the saints. They'll move onto the new coach?

    Williams won't coach again will be my guess.

    I think losing your head coach for a full year hurts more than a draft pick. But they did lose 2 2nd rd picks (2012-2013)

    If it was Rex Ryan suspended for a year, I'd be ok with it ;)

    but I really hate Roger Goodell!

    I'm really not surprised by this, Payton got a little more than I expected but not much, and the picks were less but Williams got just what he deserved because he has done this at every stop, and the fine and Loomis suspension were about right. the league has a concussion suit pending and the claim is that they knew what was going on and looked the other way while players did permanent damage to themselves, if they had not come down the way they did then the plaintiffs could use that very effectively to prove the point that the league simply doesn't care about player safety. Good decision by Goodell.

    Think of the pressure that's going to be on Drew Brees, especially considering his salary snit.

    Depends on who your coach is, but in this case you may be right, it's going to kill the teams morale for the year.

    I think Brees is going to hold out, and the Saints GM is suspended for 8 games too.

    Two 2nd round picks is perfect. Payton for a year is way too much. But on the other hand coaches will be sure this isn't going on with their teams.
