Commissioner Goodell suspends Sean Payton; New Orleans Saints introduce new interm head coach: The Midnight Rider

Following NFL commissioner Roger Goodell’s year-long suspension of New Orleans head coach Sean Payton for his role in “Bounty Gate,” the Saints introduced their new interim head coach at a hastily arranged press conference at a Popeye’s Chicken next to the Superdome: The Midnight Rider.

Bearing a striking resemblance to both Coach Payton and three-times NWA World’s champion Dusty Rhodes, the Rider flipped a silver dollar into the air and magically disappeared out the back door with a 10-piece family meal under his arm without speaking to reporters.

In keeping with the NFL’s minority hiring practices, the Saints claim Stagger Lee was also interviewed, citing his past Superdome experience.

Ironically, an irate Commissioner Goodell immediately placed a bounty on the Rider’s head, vowing if Payton is revealed to be under the hood, the embattled coach will be suspended indefinitely “just like his crony, his stooge Greg Williams” from the NFL. Further, Goodell has mandated that if the Saints win the Super Bowl, the Rider must unmask or forfeit the Steve Lombardi Trophy.

    Working on it soon. Just posting stuff right now here and there when I can. Will resume soon. In the meantime, direct your positive thoughts and well wishes to Micah Watts (Bill’s boy), whose son was killed earlier this week.

    And click on an ad or two, jabronis…
