They're not the sports version of TMZ like ESPN?!

Maybe they understand it's all bull****? :confused:

Simple answer; this is an ESPN story, not an NFL story. I've seen a couple other threads crushing Goodell for this and while I'm all for bashing Goodell whenever possible, he has nothing to do with this (yet).

Yeah, ESPN will be retracting this, I betchya...

They'll be following in the footsteps of the NFL Network in light of the Warren Sapp situation. The media is really becoming Goodell's worst enemy lol.

Here's a theory.....

It seems that daily there's a new lawsuit announced by former players. The League planted the rumor and let ESPN do its bidding on this so as to have another day to distract the media away from the lawsuit issue. They also figured that the story would continue to have legs tomorrow (again keeping the focus away from the lawsuits) yet keeping the league's nose clean as if they are not involved (that's why NFL.com is staying off of it). Wednesday,Thursday and Friday's coverage will focus on the draft, and then next Monday -- after a week of more bad news regarding the "terrible, cheating Saints" GODell will drop the bomb on the Saints players with fines and suspensions.

Net result: Lawsuits are off of the sports pages and talk shows for 7 days, while all the while the Saints continued to be slowly turned over the open flame of negative public opinion, while also building additional support by the public and media for harsh actions against the players....

I hope I'm wrong

Close, this is an ESPN story, not a real story.

Agreed, much better wording.

The league already officially said this is the first they've heard of it.
