Saints coach Sean Payton was shocked to find out today that he has been banished from the NFL for the entire 2012 season for his team’s bounty scandal.Jay Glazer said on NFL Network that he interviewed Payton immediately after the news came down, and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s punishment is far more severe than Payton was expecting.“I did talk to him and he’s stunned to say the least,” Glazer said. “I think the entire team thought maybe there’d be a four-game suspension, but not a year. I said, ‘Are you OK?’ And he said, ‘No, I’m not OK.’ He is stunned. He’s going to lose about $8 million. He is beside himself here.”Glazer reports that Payton’s plan for the four-game suspension he had braced himself for was to have assistant head coach/linebackers coach Joe Vitt take over as interim head coach while Payton served the suspension. But that plan is now out the window because Vitt has been suspended six games for his own role in the bounty scandal.The Saints may now have either offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael or former Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo, who was slated to replace Gregg Williams as defensive coordinator, step in as the head coach.

All teams/coaches/players will get a lesson from this.Don't lie to the Commish or not read his memos.This isn't over. He still has the players punishment and maybe the Skins and Bills.
There\'s a very real chance the Bucs waive [Revis] before next season. At the very least, it will be a discussion worth having.
The other Saints forum's server is too busy for the second time this month. The last time, when Carl Nicks signed.
**** the NFL. IM CACNELING MY SUNDAY TICKET
This is some ole **CENSORED**a-mammy BULL**CENSORED**!!!!!!!n Goodell/NFL just wanted to make sure that there was no way we would be the first team to host the super bowl
The league had to be absolutely sure that the Saints were crippled this year and they did it.
Benson has to fire them. He can't think keeping Loomis and Payton and Vitt on the team is good for his organization.Saints might be thrown into full-blown rebuilding mode because of this.
