Loomis and Payton Issue Satement About Bounty System

Saints head coach Sean Payton and general manager Mickey Loomis have issued the following joint statement regarding the NFL’s investigation into the team’s “bounty” program that ran from 2009 through 2011.

“We acknowledge that the violations disclosed by the NFL during their investigation of our club happened under our watch. We take full responsibility.

“This has brought undue hardship on Mr. Benson, who had nothing to do with this activity. He has been nothing but supportive and for that we both apologize to him.

“These are serious violations and we understand the negative impact it has had on our game. Both of us have made it clear within our organization that this will never happen again, and make that same promise to the NFL and most importantly to all of our fans.

    The Saints new exactly what they were doing. This is unaccepatable. Their Super Bowl throphy should be taken away and all the people that received rings from that year should have to return them. Also the game officials that looked the other way while all of this was taking place should also be held accountable.
