Sean Payton and Mickey Loomis Should Have Stayed Away From NFL Owners Meetings

ESPN is reporting that disgraced coach Sean Payton and his henchman, New Orleans Saints GM, Mickey Loomis will be atteniding the NFL Owners meetings. They weren't expected to attend.

While these goons technically don't start their suspensions until April 1st, allowing them to attend the meetings, where new rules about bounties will be discussed, is a slap in the face to everything Roger Goodell is trying to do.

I don't see the need for these guys to be present. What information can they provide to the owners? These guys are cheaters and they disrespected the game. Saints owner Tom Benson, in respect to the NFL should have prevented these rule breakers from attending the meetings.

For those of you who have no clue why these goons broke NFL rules, put your emotions aside for one second. The bounty system circumvented NFL rules regarding the salary cap. These payments were undocumented, which means that every payment didn't get included in t he team's cap. That's the evidence you need that rules were broken.

In addition to that rule being broken, the bounty payment program went agaisnt everything the NFL is trying to establish. That is a direct violation of the NFL' personal conduct policy. That's another real and valid violation. Then there's the fact that these goons violated everything we teach our kids about fair competition.

For the reasons mentioned above, these disgusting people, should have been prevented from attending NFL owners meetings. Having Payton and Lommis attending the meetings would be like having convicted murderers attending federal meetings regarding tougher sentences for individuals convicted of murder. What purpose would that accomplish. Absolutely nothing.

As a fan of the NFL, I'm disgusted at the fact that these two slimebags are even in the same city, where these meetings are taking place. Preventing them from the meetings would sent another message that their opinion regarding the implementation of new NFL rules is not wanted. The rules should be discussed and voted by the owners and then every other employee of the NFL should be expected to follow them.

I couldn't care what Payton and Loomis have to say. Their opinions mean absolutely nothing to me. Their presence at official NFL meetings undermine the process in my opinion.

While the NFL can't prevent their presence at gatherings like this until April 1st, 2012, Tom Benson should have done the right thing and told them to stay home. Tom Benson is showing me that he doesn't care what Payton and Loomis did.
