“Clearly, we were lied to,” Goodell said. “We investigated this back in 2010, we were told it was not happening, it continued for another two years until we got credible evidence late in the 2011 season and we were able to identify significant information that verified from multiple sources that this was going on for a three-year period.”
So do the Saints have a 1st rounder next year in the draft? It would be a perfect scenario for the Saints to get the next franchise QB. Is it right to Bree's, hell no! Although he would get paid huge ala Manning.
Any word on when Goodell is going to lower the boom on players?

Wow. Every sport (even the almighty NFL) is dirty as hell!
It makes no sense being pessimistic, it wouldn’t help anyway!
But i would guess that the same punishment if not worse will be placed on any team caught doing it in the future.
As a league, you can't talk player safety is our top concern out of one side of your mouth and then condone or turn a blind eye out the other.
