Michael Ealy: The Bounty Scandal Is Devastating For New Orleans: Love Of The Game

In our weekly "Love Of The Game" series, HuffPost Black Voices talks sports with a person of note. This week we caught up with "Think Like A Man" actor Michael Ealy, who opened up on the New Orleans Saints 2013 Super Bowl chances following the recent bounty scandal.

“I just spent five and a half months down in New Orleans and this whole Sean Payton, Greg Williams fiasco and the fallout that’s going to happen with the player’s later on after the Player’s Union gets involved. I mean, this is a very serious issue. And it’s devastating because the Super Bowl is in New Orleans and everybody in New Orleans was really hoping for the team to go to the Super Bowl at home next year. And it’s going to be a little bit of a tougher road without their coach, for sure.“
