Bounty Investigator to Resign

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Joe Hummel probably told Goodell to go...well, you know.... He was probably having trouble sleeping at night, knowing he was raking the Saints over the coals. His conscience was bothering him, knowing how many lives he was affecting with this ...

Joe Hummel probably told Goodell to go...well, you know....
He was probably having trouble sleeping at night, knowing he was raking the Saints over the coals. His conscience was bothering him, knowing how many lives he was affecting with this whole bounty BS, and he was probably asked to find SOMETHING on the wire-tap BS, and he had to resign so that he could somewhat look at people with some kind of dignity. Now his life is turned upside down, maybe even ruined, all because of the vandetta that Goodell has against the Saints.

Guck Foodell!

He may have been told to ignore an email from Goodell chipping into the pot.
It would appear to at least be one of the two. It's beyond suspicious.

Doesn't matter. We need local news, paper and television to CONTINUOUSLY REPORT that the major outlets like ESPN and NFLN aren't reporting this at all. With all the surrounding information that is blown out of proportion, they haven't touched this, and sat on it for a whole weekend. If Greg Williams was seen at Wal Mart buying Bounty paper towels, there would be a freaking segment on Sportscenter. This is being ignored for a reason.

The question is why are outlets ignoring something. Sensational is sensational, good or bad. I know why NFLN ignored it. But why is ESPN doing the same.

Already the NFL denies the "Director of Investigations" was not part of the "Investigation" of Bountygate.

UPDATE 4:00 p.m. ET: The NFL contends that Hummel wasn’t running the bounty investigation, even though his title is “director of investigations.” Regardless, two men primarily if not exclusive were involved in the probe: Hummel and NFL Security chief Jeff Miller. Thus, even if the “director of investigations” somehow was not directing the investigation, Hummel had an integral role in the process. “He has worked extensively on the investigation,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said via email. “He reports to Jeff Miller, who is our chief security officer.”

NO, what we really need are photos of Roger Goodell showering with little boys in his NFL office.

Unfortunately, prayer and Photoshop haven't done the job.... YET!!!

I read somewhere he got hired on as the Director of Security for some large corporation, but agreed to stick around until the bounty case was completed. It may be a simple case of "better job, move on."

Better job, move on? If this bountygate thing is actually as bad as it sounds, any idiot would stick around to make a better name for himself and then entertain new and better jobs in his 15 minutes. This stinks, not matter how you look at it.

Where did you read this...link? I want to see a quote of him saying he moved on to greener pastures. How much greener can it get, the NFL is one of the biggest corporations around.

Perception is EVERYTHING folks! Every thing that the Saints have been accused of, was released with a very specific intent in mind. Do you honestly think Godell would risk having doubt cast upon his beloved "Bounty Scandal"?
I don't think so. There is definitely more here than meets the eye!
