    Default Goodell lowers boom on Saints

    As expected, Commissioner Roger Goodell has hit the Saints hard for the bounty system that was employed for three seasons.

    Per a league source, head coach Sean Payton has been suspended for the full year.

    But it could have been worse for Payton. Former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has been suspended indefinitely. (Presumably, that means at least a year.)

    Also, G.M. Mickey Loomis has been suspended for eight games.

    The discipline comes more than two weeks after the NFL concluded that the Saints maintained in 2009, 2010, and 2011 a system that paid defensive players for forced turnovers, big plays, and (most troublingly) hits that knocked opposing players out of the game.

    Williams got the worst of it because the league concluded that he actually administered the program. As Peter King of Sports Illustrated explained in an excellent cover story for the magazine, Williams handed out envelopes full of cash at Saturday night defensive meetings following victories during the 2009 Super Bowl season.

    Also, Williams lied to the NFL, likely on multiple occasions, about the bounty system. And he brazenly continued to do it for two full seasons after the league investigated a complaint from the Vikings that the Saints had a $10,000 bounty on Brett Favre during the 2009 NFC title game.

    Payton, though not directly involved in the bounty program, was aware of it and didnít stop it.

    There is already a discussion about this in the locker room forum (since it is not really Chiefs related).

    But it is indirectly, since we play the Saints this year. This should make it a little easier to bet them!
