    Wow, I really expected Williams to get a year and maybe Payton 4 games. To suspend Payton a year is brutal for Saints and Williams may not work in the NFL again. Shot across the bow for sure

    Hell that was not a shot across the bow that was a full broadside! There is no mistaking Goodells intent. I bet Williams and Payton will not be the only ones to miss the upcoming season. Some players are shakin in their boots.

    A terrible swift sword. And kinda ex post facto, but this is the NFL, not the Constitution. They must also have goods on Williams from previous jobs.

    Will be interested to see if any players are punished or will the emphasis be on coaches/ FO implicated.

    The sad thing is this is what should have happened to Belichik for spygate, but that was swept under the rug.

    I expected a heavy fine and a possible year long suspensions for Sean Peyton and Greg Williams. I also thought Goodell would take away at least one first round pick so in that sense I think the Saints got lucky. Nevertheless the saints screwed themselves and hence got screwed. Goodell only came to tighten it. Wow. If this doesn't send a message I don't know what will.

    They did.
    Did you not see all the stuff that was written regarding Williams' bounty type practices when he was with the Redskins, etc.?

    I wonder how they are going to do that. Because not all of the players involved still play for the Saints. This is going to effect multiple teams.

    Do we have any former Saints defenders?

    I don't think it will matter at all if the player(s) that are suspended end up being former Saints.

    Just because it happened a while ago doesn't prevent the league from handing down punishment. Replace the bounty with legal trouble. If player X commits a crime while on the Dolphins but then gets moved to the Bears (I'm looking at your Marshall), the league can still punish him once he's found guilty.

    Combine that with this being the very topic the NFLPA has been wanting to see the league do something about -- player safety.
