Deuce McAllister to Live Tweet Saints-Broncos Game
Joe Vitt won't be the only person making his return to the Saints' orbit at tonight's Mile High clash with the Denver Broncos (7 p.m., NBC). Hero to WhoDat Nation Deuce McAllister will take to the Twitter to call tonight's game. With Deuce, former Colts QB Peyton Manning and former Saints CB Tracy Porter all figuring into tonight's narrative, it'll be like that Super Bowl game all over again. Among other topics, we might finally get to see if chanting that familiar Superdome echo of the retired running back's first name fits in 140 characters. Follow McAllister here.
Saints Fan Wearing Free Sean Payton Shirt Gets Picture with Roger Goodell
by Jillian Firnhaber
Many New Orleanians have spent their showers dreaming up what they’d say to Roger Goodell if they ran into him on the street. One Saints fan got a chance to go face-to-face with the Commish, and he has the picture to prove it. Known only as 2009ring on SaintsReport.com, a local man got a picture with Goodell, wearing none other than one of the immensely popular “Free Sean Payton” T-shirts. (Dirty Coast edition, for those keeping score at home.)
Joe Vitt Done Agonizing, Re-Takes Over as Saints Interim Head Coach
During his six game Bounty suspension, Joe Vitt missed his boys. "I agonized. I agonized," the Saints' Interim Head Coach, who returned to the team Sunday, told the media on Monday. "It's hard to go through. I mean, I've been with these guys for 7 years. I care very deeply, as Sean (Payton) does, for this football team, and when you're not there on gameday, win or lose, with guys that you respect and you love, It was a challenge." But, on the plus side, he saw more of his wife.
Saints' Joseph Morgan in Play of the Day Contention (VIDEO)
Joseph Morgan has been studying his Kung-Fu movies. The Saints Wide Receiver is sure to make today's - and perhaps the season's - highlight reels for his incredible grab-duck-spin-flip-would-be-tackler-dive-across-the-goal-line play during the first half of today's game in Tampa Bay. Fortunately, there's already video so we can all watch it again (and again):
Vilma In, Jimmy Graham Out: Saints-Bucaneers
About noon today, our Bye Week Blues will officially be cured as the New Orleans Saints return to action against the Tampa Bay Bucaneers at Raymond James Stadium. After a week of renewed Bounty bluster that felt more like the offseason, the Black and Gold provided some uplifting news before the division showdown, as the team announced Jonathan Vilma's returned to the squad from the injured reserve list.
Today in New Orleans: 10.21.12
Today, the Saints return to cure us from the Bye Week Blues, the Marigny parties on with a fete of its own and we wave goodbye to Treme's 200th birthday celebration and the Liliy's Revenge. On this day in Louisiana history, Blind Melon lead singer Shannon Hoon was found dead on St. Charles Ave. (1995) and Gov. Edwin Edwards began serving his 10-year prison sentence (2002). Now for today's comings and goings:
Goodell Abdicates as Bounty Decider
It just may be Jonathan Vilma's lucky day. NFL Commissioner Goodell has recused himself from any bounty proceedings, handing the decision-making over to former commissioner Paul Tagliabue. This comes only days after all four Bounty-gate players implored Goodell to remove himself from the proceedings. Although not officially backed by the NFL Players' Association, Goodell says he consulted with the executive director before formally announcing his dis-involvement with the matter.
Sue Dat: Saints Fan Takes Goodell to Court
by Jillian Firnhaber
After Bountygate and the Saints' preceding 1-4 start, one Saints fan has had enough, and he's blowing the Whistlehead on the NFL. David Mancina has filed a class action lawsuit against Roger Goodell, the League's commissioner. Mancina is seeking $5 million in damages, decrying the now diminished value of their tickets.
Saints' Jon Vilma Takes Bounty Battle Back to Court
by Jillian Firnhaber
Although his Twitter account remained quiet, Jonathan Vilma made some noise in court this morning. The Saints linebacker filed a motion in federal court in New Orleans today to vacate his entire bounty suspension. In the court filing, Vilma dismisses Goodell's actions in the latest suspensions as a "farcical review." All four players accused that were re-suspended last week for their roles in the Saints' scandal petitioned for the removal of NFL Commissioner Goodell from the case, citing his lack of impartiality.
More Saints Bounty Suspensions Means More Appeals
The Bounty saga is poised to last well past the Saints' bye week. As Breesus foretold, the four current and former Saints players who were re-suspended by Roger Goodell earlier this week are appealing the NFL commissioner's ruling. The NFL reports Jon Vilma, Will Smith, Scott Fujita and Anthony Hargrove all filed appeals this morning. As he's been known to do, Vilma added some extra spice to his dossier. The linebacker reportedly asked Goodell to recuse himself from the appeal.
