Gregg Williams suspended indefinitely.

Heavy penalty for Sean Peyton...didn't expect that. Figured a fine would be appropriate.

I don't think he bowed and scraped in apology quite enough for Goodell.

As for who will take over, the obvious choice would be Spags, right? Either him or Pete Carmichael, the OC, who called the plays when Payton was injured last season.

I expected a heavy hand for the Saints. Suprising that they went that heavy. I would have thought a huge huge fine among other penalties.

:lol: at Tebow in NY. They just gave Sanchez an extension. I dont see Tebow seeing the field at all, unless it's not at QB. I will say, however, that if there is any media market that would kill the Tebow-mania and love every minute of it, it would be the New York media.

These suspensions are bull :censored:. Payton and Williams are being made examples of and taking the entire punishment for what many, many people participated in.

It's like MLB suspending people for steroids before there is a rule. They could not do that. NFL should make a rule, have very harsh penalties and enforce them, knowing that anyone who breaks it should know better. But to punish people to this extent for something that the league was kinda turning the other way from is just flat wrong.

Bounties, regardless of their impact, just don't "sit right" from a league image perspecrive and there should be a rule...but pre-rule, this punishment seems arbitrary and therefore too harsh.

Well this what happens when you pull this *hit. I'm for the suspensions, and I like how this isn't a first offense type ruling where it's just a fine or whatever, this is. If you want to pull this crap, you're going to feel the wrath of a strong punishment, even if you're just an accessory, you got involved in it.

Wow, the NFL did the right thing, at least so far. I think people have tried to downplay the seriousness of the bounty system, considering from a legal perspective, it amounts to assault, conspiracy and racketeering, not to mention tax evasion if the players didn't report the acquired income. I could care less about the tax evasion part, as in reality its peanuts, but paying someone for knocking someone else out of a game is straight-up assault and conspiracy.

If any players can be definitively implicated, I hope they are punished to a similar extent as well.

As a Saints fan, I'm scared righ now, primarily because this is some pretty new territory here. That said, I won't waiver one bit. As long as I keep my expectations low for this season, my feelings won't be hurt. A while ago, I mentioned the Curse of the Super Bowl Host City. And so it continues...

I haven't read anything about this other than what's been typed here, but part of it could be that the league knows that there will be appeals and such, and the actual suspensions will be a little less, so they went intentionally overboard figuring Peyton will get half a season and Williams a full season. Just a thought, could be completely off base.
