The NFL has dropped the hammer on the Saints, and specifically Sean Payton
Payton will receive a one-year suspension, Williams has been suspended indefinitely, and the Saints were fined $500,000 and lost their 2nd round picks in 2012 and 2013.
Saints GM Mickey Loomis was suspended 8 games and assistant coach Joe Vitt was suspended for 6.
At the end of this season, Goodell will review Williams' status and decide whether or not he can return to the league.
This is right up there with SpyGate in terms of the heaviest suspensions in league history. SpyGate's punishment was harsher financially, but the people involved in "BountyGate" received harsher suspensions.
As far as draft picks go, the Patriots lost a first round pick after SpyGate, while the Saints lost the 2 second rounders.
There could still be more punishments handed out, as the league determines how to handle specific players involved.
Do you think this punishment is too harsh, not harsh enough, or is it just right?
