Payton, Loomis and Vitt refuse to speak to Peter King
 
Quote:

8. I think this is the cost of doing business the way I think it should be done in NFL journalism these days -- and I tell you this because it may affect my ability to know as much about the Saints as I've known in the past few years. Joe Vitt and Mickey Loomis, the New Orleans past and future 2012 brain trust, are not speaking to me, presumably because of my reporting on the Saints' bounty case.

Sean Payton told me earlier in the year he wouldn't speak to me either, because he didn't think I reported the story fairly. I'd had great relationships with Loomis and Payton. But that's how it goes. For the record, I regret nothing that I've written or said on the case.
Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, Philip Rivers, others talk about NFL training camps, 2012 NFL season - Peter King - SI.com
Wow, good for them.

Now do the same with Prisco.

Maybe someone can get the owner of the Creole Creamery to add King to the do not serve this man list!

The only things that Peter King has written about the Saints this offseason is what Roger Goodell has told him. He's done nothing to investigate the story or challenge the NFL's position in any way. Just my opinion but I think he's more concerned with his access to the commissioner's office and high ranking people in the NFL than he is with doing any actual reporting. Journalism is hard work, pandering is easy.

Oh they all are. Not just King. I'm so disgusted with 'sports reporters' I can't even think about it. It makes my blood boil how the media kissed Roger's backside for fear of losing their access. That makes each one of them tons worse than anybody who took a dollar for this alleged bounty program.

When Roger started this mess there was story after story about the ironclad case against the Saints. Some even stating the Saints got off lightly.

Fast forward a few months and the ironclad evidence turned into a bio degradable diaper six months in a landfill. Fast forward again to Vilma's suit and despite the Judge's concerns, it sounds like crickets out there.

I have not seen one major sports reporter bring this to light. When a judge says Roger sliced the salami thin and that she is troubled by their whole process those are serious statements. If King isn't going to take his craft serious then there is no reason anyone in the Saints organization should take him serious.

I said in another thread, I won't even read Peter King or SI. Thanks for giving me highlights because I refuse to click the link.

And that goes way back before Bountygate was ever a glimmer in Goodell's eye.

I don't think it will have any effect on your ability Peter. You never really known much about the saints.
