Various Saints players and fans have criticized the penalties as too severe, including quarterback Drew Brees, who said he needed an explanation. Obviously, the players will stand behind their coaches and their organization, but anybody not associated with the team shouldn’t be surprised by the severity of the decision.

When the allegations first came to light, a lot of people compared it to the New England Patriots “spygate” scandal. In my opinion, the act of trying to injure players, which could end seasons or careers, is much worse than the taping of signals. The Patriots deserved the penalties they received, but so do the Saints. The offending players risked their targets careers and livelihoods, which is absolutely inexcusable.

    If anyone on Bengals coaching staff had done this, I would have been fine with the suspension. What they did was criminal and their lucky they haven’t faced criminal charges or been sued, though Sean Payton is getting shorted his #7 million salary. Gregg should be punished more if you ask me.
