    I mean sure, only 5 days, but there was talk he would instantly poison the lockerroom. For being there such a short time, he managed to ingratiate himself with several players. As much of a basket case as he is, the dude does have a certain amount of charisma. He is also known as a hard worker (during his entire career).

    I suppose we can speculate how long it would've taken to poison the lockerroom, but that seems like a waste of time to me.

    I think you know why the NFL is not publicly clearing him of any wrongdoing, Kontra. You are making the argument why he should play and that is fine.

    They are delusional if they think anyone is buying their BS. I don't think there is a fan base that doesn't despise Goodell and the league in general. They are lucky they have a modern gladiator show that attracts the masses. The lack of consistency in applying the rules, crappy officiating, biased enforcement of rule breaking, hypocrisy in their owners, consistent lying makes the entire "Shield" brand a fiasco.

    Train wrecks like AB that are elite players do in fact attract fans because they are mostly rubber neckers anyway.

    I’m just trying to rack my brain and come up with a reason why any team would time a work out right now if they knew he was just going to end up suspended should they sign him. The only thing I can think of is that the team must not think that will happen. Working him out now with an eye toward next year does not compute logically since they could just do that in the offseason without the distracting press as they march into the postseason. Brown has already effectively served a suspension. That time off was a suspension in every effective way but name only. This looks like the Saints would expect the NFL to wrap up its “investigation” quickly and for Brown to be available to them this season.

    One of the main reasons is because the team is not on the hook for anything, and the money comes from the playoff pool. If he’s placed on the CE list, the Saints wouldn’t be affected financially. They probably feel as though it’s worth a chance.

    Or, they want to see how much he may have lost having been out of football for the last three months.

    Oh yeah because the Patriots, who have been accused of cheating at least a dozen times, had multiple of these scandals, whose owner was soliciting prostitutes, whose star TE murdered multiple people, whose head coach has a notoriously bad relationship with the press have such a public reputation to protect!

    How could we deal with the media bashing if AB returned???

    Yep, it's the proration thing I've been harping all season about. It'll never be cheaper than right now to sign AB.

    Could be. I'm not advocating a particular hypothesis as to why the Saints are trying him out. Could be they have in fact heard from the league and they've stated hes in the clear or the investigation will be wrapped up by the playoffs. Perhaps the league hasn't tipped their hand and the Saints are acting on their own volition. Could be as simple as Loomis/Payton are doing Rosenhaus a solid.

    It could be they want to "buy low" before the frozen orange juice crop report comes back OK

    All irrelevant to ABs situation.

    IMO the Saints are looking at him in case other playoff teams show interest. Some other team, one that Goodell doesn't hate, could pick him up and he might not be so quick to suspend. But if the Saints signed him, Goodell would almost certainly suspend within minutes out of spite. That is the nature of the Saints relationship with Goodell.

    I don't want him anywhere near the Saints but if doing this this keeps him off the Packers, 49ers, etc. I'm all for it.

    As crazy as that sounds, there is probably some truth to that. The NFL needs to completely clean out the NY offices.

    An interesting point to ponder. Also remember that some folks felt Goodell did the Patriots a favor by letting Josh Gordon back aboard this last time.

    Maybe. But a coach isn’t going to comment in detail on a player he hasn’t signed yet. That’s the general rule in most situations. So that statement doesn’t do much to prove anything. At least there were no oxymorons in that statement. Thank God for that.
