We've been just as angry with espn as we were with Goodell since bountygate. Because espn has continuously reported bad news about the Saints, even if it were completely derived. But when evidence came out in favor of us, espn has been nowhere to be found.

So trust me, this isn't a shift.

The Saints have asked espn for their sources, and they have declined. We're not assuming anything, we're simply using common sense, until somebody gives us some proof. But they surely won't

Yeah, those sub-par .500 seasons are pure proof of cheating..... Espn is on a witch hunt, and they arent above bs just to get ratings..... These "sources" either need to come forward with SOLID proof, or these stories dont even make it to possibility. I dont know what the league's problem is with us, or why they are on this vendetta, but enough is enough.

I guess ESPN figured we were getting just a little to drama free?

Actually there is. Even if by some miracle it was true, thee would be no legal issues involved.

Except the hand of Goodell attempting to fine and strip even more picks away to cripple us.

It's frustrating that the media can report whatever they want with little to no facts. If this turns out to be false no one will ever say a word about ESPN and the individuals working on the story but the Saints will always have this attached to them. For ESPN, a source is anyone who has an interesting story to tell, regardless of if they have proof. However, while the big wigs at ESPN and Outside the Lines thought it was OK to run this story, it seems a lot of the analysts and on air personalities for ESPN are skeptical.

You keep telling yourself that bud.

The main thing that bothers me is their is so little facts but it is the #1 story on ESPN. If they were not against the Saints explain how this is the #1 story. NBA push for the playoffs, NHL playoffs and NFL draft takes a back seat to a "maybe"?

Times-Picayune had this in their piece:

"This report is 1000 % false- completely inaccurate- we asked ESPN to provide us evidence to support thier allegations and they refused," said team spokesman Greg Bensel. "The team and Mickey are seeking all legal recourse regarding these false allegations"

I hope to god this is true so they can sue the hell out of them.
