    Expecting a decision on bounty discipline for Sean Payton, Mickey Loomis, Gregg Williams and Saints team sanctions to come down shortly



    Jason La Canfora‏@JasonLaCanfora



    Discipline for the individual players involved likely to come at a later but could be addressed broadly today

    Albert Breer‏@AlbertBreer

    Just leaving Denver, seeing bounty news to come ... I'll say this -- league wants to come down hard on players involved. And they should.

    Albert Breer‏@AlbertBreer

    ... Much harder to police pools/bounties done on the side, away from coaches, which is why I believe the NFL is resolute on hitting players.

    if they follow current punishment trends, they should collect all the $ that was spent in bounty gate and divide it among the rest of the NFL.

    I think it was Mort that was saying Williams will be suspended for the year. If that's the case, then Payton should be gone for at least 6 games.

    No doubt... After seeing what was done to the Cowboys & Redskins the pucker factor must be high in New Orleans...

    But it won't be because they are the darlings of the NFL.

    I will predict they lose their 2nd round pick, and Sean will be suspended for two games.

    Considering Goodell loves him some Saints I doubt it will even be that much

    Can we stop putting "Gate" on the end of every negative situation?

    My guess would be 6 games for Williams, 4 games for Peyton and possibly 4 for certain players. The Saints will lose a first round pick. I don't see Williams missing the year as that would be punishing the Rams who are innocent in this. Although, the way the NFL is punishing teams who have not broken any rules, they could kick them all out for life.

    Probably never going to change. It is stuck in the lexicon.

    Is there a new curse in the NFL? The host city seems to be hit with something in recent years. Dallas lost Romo, Indy lost Manning and now New Orleans has lost Payton.

    Greg Williams suspended indefinitely as well. With Payton out for a year I wonder how long indefinitely turns out to be.

    I think it'll be worse and should be.

    Lose their 2nd round this year and 1st rounder next yr.
    Payton suspended for 6 games and $250K.
    DC suspended for 1 yr and $500k fine.
    NO franchise may also be fined $500k or $1M.

    That's for not listening to the league warning and continuing the "bounty".
