Ed Werder's source says Saints bounty program exaggerated

Ed Werder was just on SportsCenter. He is at the Saints facility today. He said a Saints source he spoke to said "The leagues findings are exaggerated. In contrast to the leagues contention the Saints bounty program existed for 3 years... It was limited to playoff games in the Superdome against Arizona and Minnesota." The source then went to say, "This whole thing is one big joke. Except for the 2 games in 2009, the rest is a joke. No one has stood up and told the truth."

I hope that now with all the punishments dished out, the Saints start speaking up. I know the organization has taken the silent approach, but with the suspensions given, the players need to tell their side of the story. I really look forward to the players union challenging Goodell's "facts" and "evidence" that all of the stuff we're accused of happened.

I'm kinda stuck on the words "a source" though. Remember how we had a time with "a source" talking about Loomis somehow bugging the other team's communications....

Unfortunately for the Saints, Goodell & the league have painted themselves into a corner trying to head off all of the concussion-related lawsuits that are about to be filed by former players.

Hopefully Vilma & Smith will be allowed to play while their suspensions are being appealed.

Hate to say it - I love VILMA, but give me MY COACH BACK!

Look this is just ESPN's version of make-up sex so they don't get their panties sued off because of the LIE they reported about Mickey Loomis and Spying from the booth.

Besides, is this ESPN "source" as reliable as it was in the Spygate attempt 2 weeks ago?

Screw job deluxe.

Thanks for trying to make us your scapegoat / whipping boy to head off lawsuits by former players.

Mister Ed Werder can pound sand......I'm very, very tired of the term "source". And the mother ship still blows.

I have to admit though.. as nice as it sounds, ESPN has been going on the 'Saints Vilma penalty was too harsh" thing all day. I wouldn't doubt if this is to clear their name for their mess up with the Loomis story... I'd like more information on this source, but if it's true, it wouldn't surprise me.

Could be a publicity stunt, though.
