As if the news of Tom and Katie wasn't bad enough.

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton and his wife, Beth, filed for divorce on June 14th in Tarrant County, Texas, according to records obtained by the Times-Pic. To read the actual petition filing, click here.

The petition lists the grounds for divorce as "discord or conflict of personalities between Petitioner and Respondent that destroys the legitimate ends of the marriage relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation."

Can't say I'm surprised whatsoever. In fact, the most surprising aspect of this entire story is that it took so long for this to happen. given all the rumors swirling here in New Orleans alleging that Payton had been unfaithful in his marriage, and that this was actually the reason for the family's move to Texas. No telling whether any of that is true. It may have just been the Lombardi Trophy Payton was sleeping around with.

Saints fans worried that Payton's move to Dallas was the first step in accepting a future job with the Cowboys, however, should rest a little easier now that we know the coach has moved out of that house.

The filings indicate that Payton, who has been suspended for the 2012 season by the NFL, has already moved out of his Westlake, Texas, home in the Dallas suburbs...

Your thoughts? Do you care? Does any of this matter?

The most important question, however, is whether or not Beth gets to call half the plays now.
