Very Random thought....Those sports fans not in a hole are very aware of the New Orleans Saints "Bountygate" and the constant debates on what the impending fallout may be. What we haven't heard (unless we missed it somewhere) is what ripple this may cause the Football Hall of Fame. Unless, we are mistaken, we can think of only one potentail casulty: Sean Payton.
With a Super Bowl ring and an age under fifty, Payton's coaching future was as bright as his brief head coaching past. However, potential fallout of Bountygate could result in him being suspended, or possibly fired. With the NFL constantly cracking down on violent hits in the league, is it not possible that Payton and (for sure, Gregg Williams) suffer a severe consequence for this? With a future not so bright, we wonder if this has derailed Canton chances. Thoughts?
