Drew Brees Speechless About Payton After Hurricane Goodell Punishes New Orleans Saints
Written by 

Brees-panthersNew Orleans quarterback Drew Brees probably has expressed it all for the City of New Orleans.

In a tweet, Brees said:

“I am speechless. Sean Payton is a great man, coach, and mentor. The best there is. I need to hear an explanation for this punishment”


 Early today, the NFL punished Sean Payton and the City of New Orleans for what is now called “bountygate”.

The punishment comes at a time when Drew Brees is negotiating his contract with the same New Orleans Saints and Mickey Loomis who also has been suspended for a major part of the upcoming season.  Loomis’s suspension begins April 1 during what might be the most important part of the year for the Saints or for any team, player signing, draft and pre-season contracts.

What are others saying about the greatest punishment the city of New Orleans has taken since Katrina by Hurricane Roger Goodell?

Here is a sample:

The punishment handed out to the Saints significantly dwarfs that handed down by the league against the New England Patriots in 2007 for what became known as the Spygate scandal. There were no suspensions when the Patriots were found to have improperly videotaped opponents’ signals, but the Patriots lost a first-round draft pick; Coach Bill Belichick was fined $500,000; and the team was fined an additional $250,000.

Sean Payton also will lose $7.5 million - his base pay as the Saints coach from the contract extension he signed before 2011.

Former Saint Joe Horn says EVERY NFL team has a program like the Saints bounty program. Says in KC and ATL players were paid for cart offs.

Want to host a Super Bowl? Indy loses Manning for a year and his Colts career. New Orleans host this season; Saints just drilled#justsaying


Until they can come up with a list of player that the Saints knocked out of games or prove what hits were illegal during the Williams time here, no it's not fair.  I wish the city would tell the NFL to take the Super Bowl, since they're taking everything else.  We don't want to see two other teams in it, that probably  have done the same thing.  Also why didn't New England's coach get suspended for a year, he was flat out cheating..Carey Bowers, Bayoubuzz reader

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
