    The NFL is suspending former New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams indefinitely and Saints head coach Sean Payton for one year because of the team's bounty program, the league said Wednesday.
    The league also is suspending Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis for the 2012 season's first eight regular-season games, and Saints assistant head coach Joe Vitt for the first six regular-season games, the NFL said in a news release.
    In addition, the Saints will be fined $500,000 and forfeit their second-round selections in the 2012 and 2013 NFL drafts, the league said.

    No they don't deserve it, a year suspension when it goes on in "every" locker room according to interviews with NFL players.

    Scapegoats hung out to dry so the NFL talking heads can look good.

    Peyton Manning might want to wear a neck brace in Denver. Charlie

    Good! It's about time for those cheap shot Saints to pay up......coaches first, players next.

    A native Louisiana son--I'm embarrassed.


    They deserve everything they get. Stupidity. What professional with any class, or sense of ethics is motivated by destroying a peer's career?


    Answer, none. A professional would never even consider perpetuating such a policy.

    got to send a message,,,,,I was ok with it until I learned that they were paid extra for knee injuries to other players,,,,,good clean hits, no problem; but potential career ending or maimed for life is NOT part of the game....

    Well,as an Eagle fan,I remember Buddy Ryan getting hit with a fine for the same reason.Wasn't as severe as this though.I don't think Buddy actually put price on type of injury,and if memory recall is correct,it was only againest Dallas Cowboys,not the entire league.

    Every team does this, It is a shame the Saints were singled out. My grandson (he is 10) is a HUGE Saints fan, and he is not a happy camper. He is 10 so sports are really big to him :)

    It shows what type of lowlife might be associated with certain sports. These overpaid football players get millions to play and then they stoop so low as to try to permanently injure opposing players (usually a QB)for 500 or 1000 extra bucks. The NFL should spend a few hours watching tapes of previous games and see how many times this has occured. Then BAN THEM LIFE. How many coaches who supervise 10-18 year olds are teaching the same crap? I'll bet the truth would shock you.

    While there might be some other teams engaging in this disgraceful practice, all teams don't do it- that's just trying to make excuses for the Saints. I hope they fire Sean Peyton.

    If you listen to the interviews of NFL players form different teams, they all agree it is a league wide problem, not just the Saints. Several players that have played for several different teams have all stated there is a bounty system in 1 form or another.

    It starts when the football player is young. Most everybody use to have the "Hit of the Week." This is the defensive players goal. Get your name on the wall for a week. Not a dirty or cheap hit, just a good solid, vicious, fundamental tackle. Our High School stopped advertising the "Hit of the Week" about 4 yrs. ago. Football is a very violent sport. In order for the defensive player to not hurt themselves, they must meet force with more force. I have seen many players in our games get tossed by the referees for 1 flagrant hit. That is the way it should be!

    It's the low-life, give a sh!& less, win at any cost Coach(s) that cause most problems. With the addition of money in scheme, I figure there will be at the minimum some civil charges filed in the Saints ill-conceived idiotic plan.
