I'm still of the theory that the Saints became too popular too fast for the other big market owners to swallow. Dollars not headed their way as big as previous to the Saints popularity growth
Jesus, some of you don't think before you post. Considering NFL teams share revenue, I don't think what you're saying could be correct. Sure other teams make more money than others, but this is more because of season tickets sells and other stuff like that. The Saints selling out their stadium or merchandise really doesn't hurt other teams. Goodell fricked us, imo, for two reasons.
Add the concussion lawsuits
I definitely think that's one.
2. I don't think Goodell likes the Saints organization very much, because I don't think Payton and Loomis cared very much for him or didn't show him much respect. Can't say I blame them though.
