Shortly after the news broke about the penalties related to the Saints bounty scandal — which include the NFL's suspension of head coach Sean Payton and general manager Mickey Loomis, plus a hefty fine and draft-related penalties — local purveyors of quirky, New Orleans-centric T-shirts wasted no time in posting images of "FREE (SEAN) PAYTON" T-shirts. Fleurty Girl was first, shortly followed by a similar shirt from Dirty Coast.

Is it clever or a cheap attempt to make a quick buck? Many people on Twitter — which has exploded since this afternoon's news broke — seem to think the latter, or are at least just marveling at how fast these shirts appeared.

On the other hand, Fleurty Girl's Facebook post with the T-shirt has so far garnered 1,528 "likes." But, opportunistic retailers beware: we all remember what happened last time.
