    For a year.

    And Gregg Williams out indefinitely. Saints also lose two second round picks.

    Excuse me... Hahahahahahaha.

    Bastards got what they deserved. The NCAA needs to take note that this is how you punish someone.

    If they could determine Marvin Lewis had a hand in this and suspend him too I would be mucho gracias.

    HAHAHAHA. I am still pissed that the Falcons did not take Brees out at the knees when he came in the game late to set the passing record.

    Am I the only one who thinks the whole bounty board thing was no big deal?

    Warren Sapp on Twitter: Jeremy Shockey is the snitch

    Warren Sapp, former defensive lineman for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and now an NFL Network analyst, accused former New Orleans Saints tight-end Jeremy Shockey of being the NFL's source for the team's bounty program in a tweet sent out Wednesday after the NFL handed down its punishment to Saints coaches and the team. Shockey appeared to deny the accusation a short time later in a tweet of his own.

    How exactly does one suspend a GM? Not that he's suspended until after all roster moves are decided, anyways. Why not just announce the fine? It would sound way more impressive than "suspended between the end of the last preseason game and Week 8."

    If not being able to watch the games from his suite doesn't teach Loomis a lesson, nothing will.

    Haven't seen it suggested... Fulmer as interim coach?

    I don't either. However, Goodell has hung his hat on player safety. If he doesn't come down on this strongly he's cutting his own legs out from under himself.

    Player safety in a violent collision sport is not really something you can hang your hat on imo iyam jmo.

    He's just a hypocrite though. Rules apply to Tom Brady that don't apply to Cam Newton. Or a QB can cut a guard, wreck his knee and not get so much as a fine, but a linebacker takes out a WR on a clean play and it's a 15 yard penalty and 50,000 dollar fine.

    Agree. He's sissying up the sport one fine at a time. However, I can see why he has to come down hard. If he doesn't, he's even bigger of a hypocrite.

    That is what pisses me off.

    You can only hit a QB standing in the pocket from collarbone to thigh. However, let that guy scramble and he's fair game. WTF kind of sense does that make?

    Or a poorly thrown pass leads a WR into James Harrison's head and shoulder, throw the flag on James Harrison. Bullshit. There's no other word for it.

    He's backed himself into a corner. WRs and QBs are all but wearing flags around their waists while the guys suffering long term brain damage are the ones in the trenches headbutting each other 60 times a game.
