Last night was an action filled first round of the NFL Draft. I think it went as well as we all could have hoped given the circumstances and the state of the world right now. However, Sean Payton is one petty man. Hell, that’s why the Whodat Nation loves him so much. Payton is a mastermind on the field, but just as brilliant off the field. He never misses an opportunity to spite the league and draft day 2020 is definitely no exception.
Sean Payton Said Screw the Sponsors
The league sent out a set of rules and guidelines to follow to help make sure this draft goes as smoothly as possible. One of those rules was that anything on camera should be NFL sponsors. Sean Payton, like the wonderful petty man he is, decided to do the complete opposite. Coach enjoyed a nice cold Crush which is distributed by Keurig Dr Pepper, as well as a Coke, which are both rivals to NFL sponsor Pepsi. He also had a bag of Twizzlers to snack on. They must have been good because it appears the bag is empty. Supreme pettiness or good candy? Maybe a bit a both. Twizzlers are made by Hershey. The NFL is sponsored by Mars.
The coaches were told to not have any items in frame that are not NFL sponsors. Sean Payton said screw the sponsors, screw the league, and screw your mock drafts. Hold it.
