And you’re outta here: NFL suspends Sean Payton for entire year.

I’ve been following Bountygate but I did not foresee the boom being lowered this badly on Coach Payton. Coach Gregg Williams is done IMHO folks and Payton perhaps as well as head coach of the Saints. The bounties were not the first sign of the problems inside Team Payton to manifest themselves and that does not count the scathing criticisms levied at him for his behavior during the 2009 Super Bowl run.

Where the 2012 Saints season goes from here is anyone’s guess.  It is not off to a good start.

I watched 75 minutes of Fox 8’s late news last night and am in lockstep with Jason on how he is calling this. Simply put dredging up Cedric Richmond to talk about anyone’s integrity or lack thereof, is about as bad as Tommy Tucker at Payola radio lowering the boom on Perricone.

Maybe instead of  yammering about suing Perricone on the TeeVee, perhaps Pat Fanning and Chick Foret should put their money where their mouths are and file suit if they think Perricone defamed them.  And about Perricone’s alleged threat directed at Ray Ray the Chocolate guy?  If it were that serious, why was nothing done about it when the comment was left years ago, instead of way after the fact when the identity of the poster became known? Simple folks, because Ray Ray did not perceive a threat by what Perricone allegedly wrote back in the day, though I’ll grant the comment in question did come close to crossing the mythical line.

I’m not taking up for Perricone but the “news” coverage now has me scratching my head. The lesson here folks is if you value your privacy, especially if you are a proverbial knowledgable insider, stay away from newspaper and TeeVee websites as these businesses will, if given the opportunity, eat their own young in exchange for ratings.
