In a surprising last-minute move, the New Orleans Saints have been stripped of their 89th overall third round draft selection in the 2012 NFL Draft.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell approached the podium at Radio City Music Hall before the Saints were set to pick and announced his decision to further penalize the league's bad boys for their overall disregard of any and all rules.

An unnamed source familiar with the situation revealed that Goodell has new evidence linking the Saints front office to the Texas couple who refused to give a crying kid their foul ball at a Rangers game last night. When questioned about the alleged evidence, however, Goodell refused to elaborate saying only, "It's mine! All mine!"

Sorry, Saints fans. Looks like you'll have to wait until the fourth round before seeing your team finally make their first draft selection of the year. If you're lucky.
