Phil Anselmo, former lead singer of the mighty Pantera, currently of Down, is a busy man. But he always has time to talk about his beloved New Orleans Saints, who are going through a trying offseason, to put it mildly.
"I can talk Saints all day. I think we have a great season coming up and I think it's all going to blow over," he says of the Bountygate scandal currently enveloping the team.
Saints head coach Sean Payton was slapped with a season-long suspension by the NFL for the team's bounty program, targeting opposing players. "Free Sean Payton" shirts can be found all over the French Quarter these days in NOLA.
"Once we get Drew Brees under contract, we will be ready to kick some ass," Anselmo adds.
