They were completely innocent.
I appreciate the fact that Goodell realizes this fact. I certainly emailed his office, and, this was my main point with regard to imposing penalties that would hurt the fans.
Goodell chose to hurt the innocent Saints fans anyway. I can't respect his decision here.
I read somewhere that he helped keep the Saints in NOLA after Katrina when there was a chance that they moved to another city. If this is true, I appreciate his effort there.
I can't have much respect for Goodell, because his decision to maintain the draft pick penalties hurts the fans, not the parties whose conduct caused the issue.
Falcounts fans can die in a fire. They really should GTFO this Saints board. The mods tolerate them here, but, LSU fans are not allowed on the Tide or Ga Bulldongs boards. I don't understand this double standard.
The only recourse that Saints fans have on this board is to maltreat, insult, troll or ignore every Atlanta Falcon fan who posts here. They will get tired of the hostility eventually and GTFO.
