It has nothing to do with what they "think" of it. NFL.com is run by the league. The league benefits in no way, shape, or form from a scandal like this that suggests the games might be rigged in some way. So they're going to stay away from it as long as possible.

From what I have heard, the NFL had no knowledge until the OTL report yesterday...thus the lack of time to comment.

I was watching Mike and Mike this morning, and they interviewed Bobby Hebert. Bobby called ESPN and the NFL the "Evil Empire". I was LMAO!!!

True, but the NFL benefits even less by being wrong about the fines and suspensions being applied to the Saints.

At a time where the players union is saying they see no wrong doing by saints players, and want the evidence ( I realize thats their job ), and Breess has been asking the NFL to prove that SP lied about anything for weeks now.
Knowing that SP told GW to stop in 2010, and that he probably talked to SP, and SP told him he didn't lie. Im sure this is Brees''s motivation for being vocal.

The NFL has been really dragging the player suspensions out, and haven't even talked to a single Saints player yet.

In the mean time, audio is released of GW, Vilma's tapes and email are released, loomis is implicated for cheating, etc.. etc.. Its almost like the NFL is digging for what they don't have at the moment.

Goddell could suspend and fine all the saints players anytime he wants, months ago. The NFL does not need the player unions advice, and Im sure they did not like what it was.

I would be surprised if all of these reports,tapes, and evidence, did not have to be approved by the NFL before its release. Its all property of the NFL, and a reporter or whistle blower would find himself having very little work dealing with the NFL if it was not, after. Im just guessing here based on how heavy handed the NFL has been in the past about its telecast and property.

It could be the NFL is exercising the demons of past teams behavior by using the saints, because of millions in lawsuits against them for not taking it serious when they knew it was occurring.
It could be the NFL is using this time to dig as much as they can up on the saints,because they know the evidence they have will not show why SP or loomis where suspended, or show payment to any player for hurting another. Im really not sure what Goodell is thinking to handle it this way.

Seems either he has no clue of the impact in the media of prolonging this, and does not care about our fans, or he knows he can't support player suspensions in court. Or maybe he's just not that smart, because his inaction is the reason the media is still digging.

Time to make the DOMENuts !!!!

The FBI and Louisiana State Police have established a joint task force to investigate allegations that the Saints illegally wiretapped opposing coaching staffs from 2002-04.

"We want to see if there is any validity to the allegations and if it affects any state statutes," were the words of State Police Superintendent Mike Edmonson Tuesday. It's believed both the state and federal statue of limitations in the case have expired, so it remains unlikely GM Mickey Loomis will face any criminal charges.
