NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is not a happy camper these days. A report from Sports Illustrated’s Peter King on the magazines Facebook page has suggested that Goodell is extremely furious at the events that have taken place with the New Orleans Saints organization, and is will not show mercy with his discipline.

“This is a seminal moment in the culture change we have to make,” a source close to Goodell said. “This has to stop now. Every team needs to hear the message that we’re in a different era now, where this appalling behavior is going to end.”

Gregg Williams is obviously front-and-center of the investigation and punishment that will be handed down. What may be the most damning piece of information for Williams is that he allegedly lied directly to the commissioner when he was asked about it.

As we reported yesterday, Goodell is looking to come down hardest on Williams, Sean Payton and Mickey Loomis. Whereas Goodell is obviously upset that the bounty program is taking place, he appears to be even more upset by the deception from the Saints organization. It definitely isn’t looking better for Payton. One league source went as far as to compare the way he runs his ship to the “Nixon White House.”

Jonathon Vilma, who is danger of being cut by the Saints, is also going to feel the wrath of the commissioners office, as he offered $10,000 for Brett Favre to be taken out during the NFC Title game. After Favre was injured in the game on-field microphones picked up a couple of quotes that definitely aren’t helping the Saints.

“Favre is out of the game! Favre is done! Favre is done!”

-DL Anthony Hargrove

“Pay me my money!”

-unidentified player

Whether or not you agree with the direction that Roger Goodell is trying to steer the league, the behavior that we are used to and accept is going to be forced to change.
