Watching the extreme dirty plays by the New Orleans players in the game against the Philadelphia Eagles it was obvious they play dirty and they are coached to play dirty.
Coach Sean Payton is a disgrace to the game for his coaching to play dirty to win.
Payton was suspended for the entire 2012 NFL season as a result of his involvement in the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal, under which “bounties” were paid for contact that would “knock out” targeted players on opposing teams.
He was a member of the Chicago Bears squad of strikebreaking replacement players, known as the “Spare Bears”, during the 1987 NFL players strike.
Payton was a coach for and was fired from the Eagles.
On March 2, 2012, the NFL concluded after a thorough investigation that from 2009 to 2011, the Saints implemented a bounty program that rewarded players for deliberately attempting to knock opposing players out of games. The slush fund was determined to be administered by defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who joined the team in 2009. An extensive league investigation found Payton was implicated in the Bounty Scandal. The league determined Payton went as far as to orchestrate a cover-up when the league first investigated it in the 2009-10 offseason.
The entire New Orleans team should quit until Payton is fired. It’s a matter of personal integrity in addition to the perpetuation of a dirty coach and the team he coaches.
