After two weeks of deliberating the NFL today has finally decided on the punishiment the New Orleans Saints organization shall receive for orchestrating a 'bounty system' during Gregg Williams' time as defensive coordinator. Sean Peyton, the Saints' head coach, has been suspended for an entire year without pay for his part, while DC Gregg Williams has been suspended indefinitely, effectively banning him from the NFL. In addition Saints general manager Micky Loomis and assistant coach Joe Vitt has also been suspended for 8 games and 6 games respectively over the 2012 season. Finally the New Orleans Saints have also been fined $500,000 and had both their second round draft picks from 2012 and 2013 taken from them. Such a heavy punishment over an entire organisation is unheard of in the NFL and sets the tone for player-safety related incidents in the future. As of yet no individual players have been punished for their participation in the program, however the NFL is still in discussion with the NFLPA on the matter. Players will most likely also find themselves being suspended or fined. We'll keep you updated as the story progresses. The NFL's official announcement of the punishments can be found here.
