Exclamation Loomis caught lying to Benson & league

General managers only have so many people above them in the NFL hierarchy. A team owner is one. The league office is another place you donít want to mess with.

According to a report from Don Banks of SI.com, Saints G.M. Mickey Loomis got caught lying to both Saints owner Tom Benson and those conducting the NFLís internal investigation of the Saintsí bounty program.

Loomis reportedly was asked about the Saintsí bounties in 2010 and denied knowing anything about it. He then ignored Bensonís orders to discontinue to program if it existed.


Loomis could pay price for lying to league, owner | ProFootballTalk

Pro Football Talk is a rag. The TMZ of the NFL... And Mike Florio is a drama queen.

Loomis will protect Benson, get a slap on the wrist and chastised "wink-wink" by Benson.

It will however continue to be our own version of the Pats spygate.

Spygate is cheating, bounty gate is ugly. That's the difference the way I see it

Saints got no competitive advantage.

The Saints Defense has been mediocre for a long time. The Saints got no competitive advantage from the scheme, so, the punishments should NOT include measures that would harm the Saints competitiveness.

There should be some fines and maybe Loomis needs to be fired. That would not be a big loss in my humble opinion.
