New Orleans Saints Coach Payton To Appeal To NFL Kangaroo Court of Goodell
Written by 

kangarooThe Associated Press reports that Saints coach Sean Payton will appeal his season-long suspension to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who suspended the coach.

Payton will also ask the commissioner the ramification details on his suspension.

Goodell assigned the penalty early last week and will decide exactly how it will ultimately be carried out.  Some claim the process is a kangaroo court of prosecutor, judge and jury. 


According to the AP:

"Saints coach Sean Payton has decided to file an appeal on Friday of his season-long suspension with the NFL, a person familiar with the decision said.

The person says the appeal will also ask NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for his guidance on the parameters of the suspension. The person spoke to The Associated Press Friday on condition of anonymity because the league and the Saints have announced Payton's plan to appeal.

Goodell suspended Payton, starting Sunday, for his role in connection with New Orleans' bounty system, which offered improper cash bonuses for big hits that either knocked opponents out of games or left them needing help off of the field.

Goodell said at NFL meetings this week in Florida that Payton could have some contact with the team but did not go into detail.

The commissioner has also said the Saints' coach would be allowed to continue working while the appeal process played out, but also that the appeal would be expedited, indicating that Payton would not likely be able to add on much work time should his appeal be upheld.

Also, according to NFL.com, "

Payton was suspended for the 2012 season by the NFL as a result of his involvement in the "bounty" program that the Saints ran from 2009 to 2011, while Gregg Williams was the defensive coordinator there.

Williams was suspended indefinitely. After much deliberation, he does not plan to appeal his suspension, according to a league source.

Meanwhile, there is still much speculation as to whether Bill Parcells will coach the New Orleans Saints on an interim basis.  Parcells has been making statements to the media that would suggest that he and the team could work out a deal.
