    Gregg Williams is suspended indefinitely. Commish will review Williams situation at end of 2012 season and consider reinstatement

    Jeff Darlington ‏ @JeffDarlington
    NFL DROPS HAMMER: Sean Payton suspended for 2012 season, NFL announces. Mickey Loomis suspended 1st 8 games and must pay $500K fine

    Jay Glazer @JayGlazer
    Saints had planned to have Joe Vitt take over for Sean Payton as interim head coach but Vitt banned now as well

    Chris Mortensen ‏ @mortreport
    #Saints also losing second round draft picks in 2012 and 2013.

    Further punishment or will that suffice?

    "Sean Payton suspended one year. Mickey Loomis 8 game and $500,000 fine. Saints fined $500,000 and a second round pick in 2012 and 2013"

    According to Pro Football Talk

    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.
