Sean Payton Suspended for One Year

Payton isn't the only one being censured:

The assistant head coach, Joe Vitt, was also suspended without pay for the first six regular-season games of the 2012 season. The league said discipline for the players involved in the bounties was still under review with the players union and would be addressed at a later date.
I'm not really sure what it means to suspend the GM for eight games. Does that mean he can't make deals for the first half of the season?

Sorry, wingy!
