i totally agree with whitlock.
Payton, who also received a year-long suspension, can be an NFL head coach for the next 15 years. Vitt (six-game suspension) can be a high-paid assistant for the next 15 years. Loomis (four-game suspension) can hold a high-paying front-office job for the next 15 years. Goodell's peers — with the exception of Williams (suspended indefinitely) — can easily recoup their losses.
not only can payton coach for many more years to come, i bet goodell is figuring out a way to give him a cooshie job as a NFL Network analyst for the year.
as for the rest of the saints staff, it looks lick mickey loomis will be given the job to temporarily run the New Orleans Hornets (recently purchased by saints owner tom benson)-
