Why I think the Saints have been punished enough.


First, I want to say that Gregg Willams is a schmuck, and deserved to be barred from all of football (even Madden) for the rest of eternity. He not only crossed the line, he stomped over it and did a jig. I may even agree that Payton deserves his punishment. For the sake of argument I will go along with that.

My opinion will probably be very unpopular with my fellow 49er fans. I think they should get their draft picks back. The reason I think this is because this is now punishing Saints fans. They've lost their head coach, their star QB is arguing money, and now the NFL wants to punish the fans further by yanking some high draft picks? Plus, the NFL will now have to repeat this punishment if another team does this. I'm sure the Raiders have a big bounty board up now; they'll lose their picks in what, 2020?

One other reason I think they have been punished enough; Alex Smith and Vernon Davis. If a punishment is mandatory for their defense, make them watch the last 4 minutes of that playoff game 3 times a day every day for a year.

I would like to thank Gregg Williams for allowing that victory to occur. If you had concentrated on Defense instead of cheap injury-shots, things would might have been different. Gregg, because of YOU, we got one fumble away from the super bowl. Thank you very much, and here's hoping that you never touch a football again.
