    Damn. I had Goodell in my commissioners fantasy league.

    So they don't have to sit ANY games at all?

    My guess is we have not heard the end of this.

    The Saints are on the equivalent of NCAA probation.

    It's basically a situation where they told Goodell he can't be the judge, jury and executioner. Once he handles it the right way, according to the collective bargaining agreement, the suspensions probably will be reinstated or slightly edited.

    Doesn't do anything for Redskins fans, though.

    What about Payton? Can he coach?

    I'd imagine he has his hands in the cookie jar behind the league's back.

    Word is because the coaches and GM admitted guilt, they could not appeal. As for the players, I'm sure some will still serve some sort of suspension because Goodell cannot be shown up.

    My understanding is that coaches and GM couldn't appeal because they arent in the union.
