I think the dollar fine is actually pretty light, but I'll admit they came down on the coaches and possibly players (TBD) a lot more than I thought they would.

SP tried to cover it up and that was worse than just coming clean. I have absolutely no sympathy for anyone involved. I'm not a Favre fan but they were out to hurt him and accomplished it, and it definitely had an impact in that NFC Championship game.

It's been going on for decades, it's not just the Saints, and to think the NFL had no idea is preposterous.

I don't think any part of your characterization sounds accurate.

New Orleans wasn't. Then they lied about it when caught.
