    Unless it is in the contracts signed by the league, then I doubt they have any ability to say yes or no to anyone.

    I know on the discalimer for MLB games its mentioned that the announcers have been approved by MLB. Maybe the NFL is different. I would think whoever hires him for TV work may get less of a TV deal the next time around. They may decide to divvy up the $$$ more to another network. We'll see. I do know it makes the NFL and Goodell look really bad if he's on the air commenting on games.

    My guess is the networks would say "we're paying a billion dollars to broadcast these games; we'll hire who we want"

    Payton gets a year off and can work for a network until his suspension is up.

    Tell me how the whole thing isn't a slap in the face to the Commissioner?
    Parcells would be no more than a figurehead. Payton was the offensive play caller. This is a huge disruption to the team. No way Payton makes $5.8mill in any other line of work from April 1 through the Super Bowl. If the Saints can hire Parcells more power to them

    Gregg Williams isn't looking so good right now.

    I heard most of the tape. Something tells me that Williams wasn't the only person to make a similar speech.

    Isn't that speech the very essence of football?

    Not at all.

    What a absolute joke this idiot is. Should be banned from ever being allowed to coach any level of football again.

    I think we are about to witness a life-time ban from the NFL. Frankly I think Payton should be right there with him, but he'll probably slither his way out of the worst of it.

    I figured this whole thing was probably overblown a bit by the NFL, but that it was still a suspension and punishment that needed to happen. After listening to that audio tape, any coach who was in the room when that speech was made should not ever coach again.

    That is beyond ridiculous to specifically target hitting guys in the head, and even more so guys who have had concussions in the past. Talking about going after an ACL or vernon davis ankles in the pile has no place in the game whatsoever.

    There is a distinct difference between telling your guys to go knock the **** out of someone and hit em as hard as you can (both fine) and the garbage that Williams was spewing.
    Newsflash!

    I guess I'm just jaded but that stuff really didn't surprise me (Jack Tatum and "North Dallas Forty" and snot bubbles and all that). I know the NFL is trying to get away fron that kind of stuff and I think that's a good idea, but the fact that those kinds of raw speeches happen doesn't surprise me.

    I look forward to the NFL outlawing the chop block soon.

    The most interesting thing about the tape is the timing. Is it a coincidence that the tape came out the same day as Payton's appeal? I don't think so. Goodell is very smart and he doesn't want this appeal to be successful. So, what better way to do that than to encourage the release of this tape?

    The U.S. Attorney's Office in the Eastern District of Louisiana was told Friday that New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis had an electronic device in his Superdome suite that had been secretly re-wired to enable him to eavesdrop on visiting coaching staffs for nearly three NFL seasons, "Outside the Lines" has learned.
    Saints deny. Stay tuned.

    Has a Super Bowl season ever been vacated from the record books in the NFL?

    This could be the first.
