NFL Lays Down HUGE suspensions in Saints case, including a one-year no-pay ban to Sean Payton http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2012/football/nfl/03/21/sean.payton.suspended.bounties.ap/index.html?xid=si_topstories&partner=skygrid
I would have taken away the Saints 2009 Super Bowl as well, otherwise the punishment is basically, "You cheated to achieve something, and achieved it, but we are not happy about it."
If I steal $20,000,000 from the NFL and still display it at my house, would the NFL like it if the police sent me to jail for a year but let me keep and continue to display the cash????
