Drew Brees worried of more Saints Sanction

Today on the “Dan Patrick Show” New Orleans Saints quarterback, Drew Brees addressed the bounty program that has left both coaches and players suspended. Brees explained why other coaches have not stood up for the players suspended. “I’ve been informed a lot of those coaches feel there are further sanctions being held over their head if they don’t cooperate with the investigation,” Brees said. “If they were to speak out on behalf of the players, maybe that’s the fear they have.”

Much has been made about the fact that NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell is serving as judge, jury, and executioner. The players feel it is a lost cause to appeal any sanctions because the appeal would be heard by the man who initially dished out the punishments. Ultimately this falls back on the players union. The players union should have had the foresight to address this issue during the most recent collective bargaining agreement.

Based on Drew Brees’ comments it would appear the Saints players and coaches will take the punishments dealt by Goodell in fear of even more sanctions coming down on them. Listen to the Dan Patrick interview here
