|"Peyton place was the original American soap opera, now the National football league follows tradition with their own Peyton place, or should I say Payton place..?" |
This blog also ran as an opinion article in the Kaua'i Garden Island new, this same day, Saturday 03-24-12 with the title,
"The good Luck, the bad Payton and the ugly Peyton"

The National Football league is in the off season and although professional hockey and basketball are currently in prime time, the NFL is still number one in the news.New Orleans head coach Sean Peyton was suspended for one year without payment of his 7.5 million salary for the placing monetary bounties on opposing teams quarterback's to knock them out of the game.
Defensive coach Greg Williams was also suspended indefinitely and the general manager was also suspended for 8 games, along with losing two number two draft picks and a $500,000 fine.
Not really A great day for the 2010 super bowl champion New Orleans saints!
Now let's look at the other Peyton. Peyton Manning signed a 96 million 5 year contract to play quarterback with the Denver Bronco's. Peyton's former team declined to resign the future hall of famer after Peyton sat out all last season from neck surgeries.
Manning's former team had only two wins last season making them eligible for the number one draft pick in the upcoming NFL draft. The Colts decided to let Peyton go and will most likely depend on Luck, Andrew Luck the runner up for two consecutive years for the Heisman trophy.
It looks like Peyton Manning relying on some Luck while Sean Payton is the true "Peyton," living in his own Peyton place of a soap opera, being the fall guy for every fan they ever yelled out, "kill that guy," (symbolic of course)
If anyone missed the news you can always with some luck TiVo it from your TV, I said TiVo not Tebow.
