Jay Glazer of FOX Sports made an appearance on the NFL Network and indicated that the New Orleans Saints and head coach Sean Payton are completely shocked regarding the punishments that were handed down by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
“I did talk to him and he’s stunned to say the least,” Glazer said. “I think the entire team thought maybe there’d be a four-game suspension, but not a year. I said, ‘Are you OK?’ And he said, ‘No, I’m not OK.’ He is stunned. He’s going to lose about $8 million. He is beside himself here.”
Payton should be stunned and I’m sure that was Goodell’s intention It’s all about getting a point across and he’s clearly done that with the penalties that he handed down today.
