Now, when will Saints, Williams be penalized?

Posted on: March 6, 2012 6:16 pm
 
OK, now that New Orleans coach Sean Payton and GM Mickey Loomis have taken "full responsibility" for Bounty Gate, it's time for the NFL to swing the hammer and penalize them, former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams and the Saints organization.

I know that commissioner Roger Goodell wants to get this right because, essentially, what the Saints and Williams, Payton and Loomis fostered was a program that flies in the face of the player-safety push that Goodell has made a mantra of his last three years.

But it's more than that, of course. It's outright disrespect for Goodell, his office, the league's constitution and by-laws and, frankly, common sense. So look for Goodell to drop the hammer on everyone.

The only question is: When?

Sources tell me it could be anywhere before or after the league's March 25-28 owners' meetings in Florida, but they also tell me it absoultely, positively will not happen there. Nor should it.

I would expect Goodell to weigh in on this sooner rather than later to put the ugly episode behind everyone. People tell me he's deliberating to give all parties a chance to say something, to evaluate all information and to make sure he's covered all bases before he makes a decision.

But we have Williams admitting his guilt, and now we have Payton and Loomis admitting their guilt. I don't know what more we need. I don't care how widespread this was. I just want it stopped from this point forward.

And so does Goodell.

That's why most persons expect a harsh penalty that sends a message to others that this cannot and will not be tolerated. Goodell will weigh his options, but none of them are good for the Saints or Williams. Nor should they be.

I guess you were wrong. The sanctions I predicited against NO was almost exactly what Goodell did. So now, you're really toast. Theidea IS to stop it, WC. And as I predicted, Goodell sent a powerful message. This ensures it won't happen again.

Wow, another person who doesn't understand English. Loomis and Payton admitted ONLY that the alleged acts occurred under their watch. They DID NOT admit to knowing about them. Since everyone knows that Payton and Loomis were in charge during the alleged violations, this is an admission of nothing. This is people who know they don't stand a chance against Goodell trying to appear penitent in order to minimize the penalty.

rtsfantasy said "Wow what a friggin IDIOT.I see you fail to mention what should happen to the Pats 3 tainted spygate Super Bowls "

First off two different subject and for the record the NFL did a very hard investigation into all three of the Patriots Super Bowls and never found any taping happen also for the record every team has at one time or another done what the Patriots have done.

As for this it's totally different yes back in the 70s thru 80s coachs did give out small amount of cash but for the most part those were hit that were not intended to end someone career. The Saints and Williams have stated that they were out to hurt fellow players.

Hence my statement about the NFLPA should take a stand and make it clear that they as a Union will not stand by and let this type of stuff go on.

All involved should be thrown out this would send a message loud and clear that this will not be tolerated end of discussion.
