IS FORMER SCAB SEAN PAYTON ALSO A DRUG ADDICT?

WE ALREADY KNOW SEAN PAYTON HAS LOW MORAL CHARACTER-HE WAS AN NFL SCAB QB BACK IN THE ’80S

Super Bowl winning coach Sean Payton of the New Orleans Saints may be the completely innocent victim of an outrageous smear campaign orchestrated by a disgruntled former employee trying to extort money from his former club. Either that, or he’s one of the most highly functioning drug addicts in America.

There isn’t much middle ground.

The Saints former director of security is suing the club. He says the team’s general manager Mickey Loomis covered up the evidence of theft of the narcotic Vicodin from the Saints medical supplies. In his lawsuit, Geoffrey Santini says “two unnamed high-level employees” of the Saints stole the Vicodin.

Payton felt compelled to release a statement Sunday saying he was NOT one the thieving junkies who stole the Vicodin. Although he wasn’t named in Santini’s lawsuit, according to an AP article, Payton was identified by two Saints employees as being allowed to help himself to large quanities of Vicodin from the team stash. Another Saints employee (linebackers coach Joe Vitt) reportedly stole the drug because he was an addict.

The website Pro Football Talk also identified Payton as one of the “senior employees” who is accused of taking Vicodin from the Saints. That site is run by an attorney, Mike Florio. Rest assured, Florio would NOT be running that article unless he was DAMN sure Payton was one of the men accused.

That doesn’t mean Payton did what he is accused of. The lawsuit is an allegation and no criminal charges have been filed. The Saints spin is that Santini is a disgruntled former employee. Santini is a former FBI agent. He says he resigned in 2009 as the Saints director of security after they refused to report felony drug action.

This case may come down to Payton’s word versus that of Santini’s. Here’s what we know. Geoffrey Santini is a highly decorated former special agent with the FBI. He has no known blemishes on his record. Meanwhile, Sean Payton is a scab. 

Although it received virtually ZERO publicity during Super Bowl week, Payton started his career as a scab. He was a replacement quarterback for the Chicago Bears during the 1987 players strike.

Then again, maybe the Santini lawsuit WON’T come down to simply his word against Payton’s. Bad news. Vitt is reportedly on security camera tapes stealing drugs. More bad news. Santini reportedly has a TAPE of Payton and Loomis talking about the drugs. Santini reportedly tells the pair they are covering up a felony and is told to “leave it alone.” Santini responds,

“I’d rather get smacked by the league than get indicted by a federal grand jury or a state grand jury. Because if we cover this up, we committed felonies.”

The Saints response? They bounced Santini who “resigned” before the 2009 season.

This story hasn’t received a ton of national publicity, but no less a football authority than Peter King of SI.com says the case may have “dire consequences” for the Saints
