The NFL has announced that Roger Goodell has upheld the suspensions to Saints Coach Sean Payton, GM Mickey Loomis, and Assistant Head Coach Joe Vitt thus denying their appeals made last week.
Sean Payton will begin serving his punishment on April 16, but Vitt and Loomis won’t begin their suspension until after the pre-season.
The Commissioner did say that if all parties compiled with the terms of the suspension he would consider lessening the financial penalties for the individual.
ProPlayerInsiders will have more information on this story as it emerges. Also, PPI’s Saints reporter Steve Bennett is hard at work on a reaction piece that should arrive in the next couple of hours.
