Goodell doesn't mess around, that's for sure.

For Payton, who just loves to coach, this has to kill him inside. But, whatever, a year sabbatical to recharge the batteries, plenty in the bank account.... eh, I could think of worse things.

He messed around with the Patriots spy scheme. No suspensions, minimal fines if im not mistaken, and one draft pick forfeit.

I guess paying to lay hits is that much worse than cheating.....

This is a huge blow to the Saints, With out the HC calling the offense look for a huge slide in the offense. Not to mention I dont think the defense is getting any better.... Superbowl contender to out of playoffs? I wouldnt be surprised..

@suthernsmoke - I heard the reason this was such a big hit was the NFL contacted them and said stop, they didnt listen and continued to do it for 1-2 more years... So they got smacked. Pats got caught stopped and listened....I heard that was the difference although a weak one

    I actually heard it this morning a Sports Illustrated reporter was on one of the morning shows I listen to and he was saying that he expected it to be bad actually his worst case wasnt this bad but he said it was going to be brutal since they were told to stop in 2010 and they said they would and then they did it again in 2011 or something like that...

I was expecting some huge fines and suspensions to a much smaller degree. Our Saints are really going to have to hold it together as a unit to get thru this mess. WOW

Unfortunately the coach has to take the brunt of this penalty, but serves he and the team right for running an illegal bounty system targeting opposing offense players. They already suspended Williams indefinitely, General Manager Mickey Loomis is gone for the first eight games and linebackers/assistant head coach Joe Vitt for the first six. If it's true that Payton and Loomis had knowledge of the bounty system run by Williams but failed to take steps to stop them, then maybe the message will get through when speculation like this arises in the future.

I totally agree JTG if they had prior knowledge and were told to stop they the penalties fit the crime. The sport is rough enough as it is without adding a bounty on players. I saddened when the story broke and unfortunately it just keeps getting worse.

Welcome to the world of the USC Trojans. At least Coach Carrol was able to go to the NFL.
Sean is taking a hit of 7.5 million a year. Granted he has enough in the bank but everyone is broke at their own level.
Thats a big hit.

But it also penalizes the team owner whom had nothing to do with it so my only thought is you are punishing the individuals involved why hit the team with the loss of draft picks. But what do I know.
