New Orleans Saints get aerial reminder of Sean Payton

Other than that terrifying banner hanging inside their practice bubble (DO YOUR JOB!), Sean Payton exists mostly as a memory for the New Orleans Saints these days.

The coach will be back, though it's unlikely to happen until 2013. The Saints have marched on, but they were reminded of their exiled leader during practice on Wednesday, when a plane flew over the field pulling a banner that read, "FREE PAYTON."

"It's creative," Drew Brees said, via The Associated Press. "I want to know who did it."

Ever the populist, Brees indicated he'd be comfortable helping sponsor more public protest messages "if it's a legal and funny thing like that."

This guy's going to be president one day.
