Saints quarterback Drew Brees said that no one trusts NFL comissioner Roger Goodell, in a recent interview with Sports Illustrated's Peter King:

“Nobody trusts him. Nobody trusts him. I’m not talking about a DUI, or using a gun in a strip club, which are pretty clear violations,” Brees said. “I think there’re too many times where the league has come to its decision in a case before calling a guy in, and the interview is just a façade. I think now if a guy has to come in to talk to Roger, he’ll be very hesitant because he’ll think the conclusion has already been reached.”

After their bounty scandal, and the suspension of their cooach Sean Payton, the Saints no longer have the same face. Brees went on:

“I don’t know. I think about it a lot. The hard thing is, your head coach is gone like that,” Brees told King as he snapped his fingers. “He’s just gone. We’re very familiar with coach [Joe] Vitt, very comfortable, and then he’s gone for the first six weeks. You take the two strongest presences in the building and remove them, and it’s like taking the president and vice president away from government. You had better have a pretty strong Congress, then. Our mentality is this: Move on. Find a way. We will. The teachings from your parents never leave you, and eventually you’re going to leave them, but you’re going to carry those teachings with you.”

The Saints will be okay... They still have a sick team, with or without Payton, and the several players that also got suspended. Besides, Payton seemed a little sad when the sanctions were given, but that sight faded pretty quick when a video of him dancing with a lady in the Bahamas surfaced. Payton definitely moved on.
