I think Payton likes his freedom with this team, when he actually has it. I doubt he would have as much with the cowboys when on active roster.
Seems to be the kind of guy who loves projects. Loves to fix his work.
Sucks for him as a person what Goodell did to him. Not only has the guy lost his marriage, his career (one of the things he obviously takes very serious) has been under constant persecution..and if it isn't bad enough, the people you would normally reach out to and discuss these things or have them come to you...cant happen cause some a-hole feels that would be the best way to protect the shield.
yeah, hurt a growing and exciting fanbase of the product you put out. These people make incredible salaries...if you really do care about things like player safety and care..when they frick up, fine them and donate their money to a charity that helps former players who have been harmed by the game, players that really didnt get taken care of like today's guys.
I understand there are things already set up, was just an example of what could be done with the money these guys make and lose with fines. They are suspended without pay anyways..take the money and put it to good use. Let them work for free if they choose to, but dont hurt a fanbase of the precious shield.
