Saints News, 7/21/15 - Sean Payton: Hard to Compare Bounty Scandal, 'Deflate-Gate'

New, comments

From Nola.com: "I certainly can't speak for Tom," Payton said. "The comparisons are difficult, because one deals with the players union, and in our case, there's pretty much no representation outside what the league finds. It was a process that took place, it seems like 10 years ago. Obviously, it's challenging and frustrating to be away from the game for that long. But with regards to Tom and New England and Bill (Belichick), they'll handle this. I've really got no insight as to specifics when it comes to a player, because it's a lot different than a coach."
