Players union responds to Jeff Pash's take on Saints bounty evidence

The NFLPA issued a blunt response Saturday to some statements made Friday by NFL general counsel Jeff Pash about the league's investigation of the bounty/pay-for-performance system run by the New Orleans Saints on defense from 2009-11.

Pash, in an interview with Pro Football Talk on Friday, had this to say about some of the criticism involved in the evidence the league presented at Monday's appeal hearing for Jonathan Vilma, Will Smith, Scott Fujita and Anthony Hargrove and about union executive director DeMaurice Smith not attending the hearing:

"He would have had an opportunity to see the evidence and hear the witness statements and how it all weaves together, which is how a good prosecutor puts a case up. It is a mosaic. Focusing on any one piece of the mosaic may not tell you very much. When you put it all together, it paints quite a clear picture. If De had been able to be here Monday and participate in the hearing, he would have a different view perhaps than what he has today."

This was union spokesman George Atallah's response to PFT on Saturday:

"Whether or not De was there is irrelevant to the players. He got to see the documents over the course of three days and didn't see any other evidence since March. In short, small pieces of sh-t pieced together might be a mosaic, but it just amounts to one big mosaic of sh-t."

Yeah, they were prepared to offer additional evidence if they showed up.
