Well if we lose picks, Nicks, Colston, and have to sign Brees to a huge contract, we might as well go into rebuilding mode.

Quote:
Discipline for the Saints could include fines, suspensions and forfeiture of draft choices.


Quote:
NFL investigation of Saints began in 2010 when allegations were made that Saints targeted QBs such as Brett Favre and Kurt Warner.


Today is getting better and better.

Wow we're already short draft picks, and now we have a good chance to get even less.

I wonder how the NFL found out. 18,000 documents is a lot evidence.

Of course Gregg Williams implemented it. The gift that keeps on giving. What a clown.

What an awful off season so far.

Anybody think this may be why Brees isn't wanting to sign? Maybe he's known it's coming?

I'm willing to bet it's on Tom Condon. Brees' agent has done this before.

Jason La Canfora ‏ @JasonLaCanfora
NFL investigation says Saints coaches and GM Mickey Loomis did not intervene to stop bounties when owner Tom Benson instructed them to


This is disgusting. I feel sick.

Playing in the Super Bowl at home this year? Yeah forget about that. We just got sent back to square 1, pre 2006. Brees is gone, Nicks is gone, Colston is gone. We're going to lose numerous picks. This is going to KILL our franchise. I feel sick.

Apparently Payton knew as well. I'm pretty pissed right now.

Heartbreak is the only way to describe how I feel as a Saints fan. I'm disgusted right now. Time to rebuild.

Yeah...think we will be back to square one after this. And to think Payton and Loomis were in on this? I'm just appaled.

I'm thinking so.

I'm shocked at Loomis and Peyton. I hated GW, but those two? I thought they wouldn't do this.


Also, cap circumvention would be included too.

We'll be lucky to pick before the 5th round. If at all.
